Fremont-Based Film A Hit At Sundance Festival

By Sean Keeley · February 1st, 2011 · No Comments

A whole bunch of Seattle films stood out at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. One in particular is of interest to Fremonsters since parts of it were shot on location here.

“The Details” stars Tobey Maguire, Elizabeth Banks and Laura Linney and Ray Liotta. Maguire plays Dr. Jeff Lang, who along with his wife Nealy (Banks), lives a regular middle-class life in Seattle. What begins as a series of innocuous events and bad decisions by Lang ultimately becomes something a bit darker in this black comedy.

The film was shot entirely in Seattle and features the Montlake and Fremont neighborhoods as well as many Seattle-specific references. Our sister blog Queen Anne View has some photos from when the film was shooting in Kerry Park way back in September 2009. Here’s some video of the film shooting in Ballard.

Writer/director Jacob Aaron Estes sold the film for a reported $8 million, one of the festival’s biggest sales and ensuring a well-publicized theatrical release sometime soon.
