SundanceNOW celebrates SXSW with dirt cheap movie rentals

Scene from the film Sorry ThanksIn celebration of SXSW, SundanceNOW is featuring some past festival favorites for just 99 cents. South by Southwest, better known as SXSW, runs from March 11-20, 2011, in Austin, Texas.

Below are the discount codes for this month’s featured films below.

Hannah Takes The Stars (Watch this on SundanceNOW for 99¢ with the code: HANNAHSXSW)

Over the course of one hot post-graduate summer, Hannah (Greta Gerwig) falls precariously in and out of love. A chronically dissatisfied breaker of hearts, she finds herself drifting away from her newly unemployed boyfriend (Mark Duplass) and drawn to two of her co-workers, Matt (Kent Osborne) and Paul (Andrew Bujalski).

Sorry, Thanks (Watch this on SundanceNOW for 99¢ with the code: SORRYSXSW)

Reeling from a brutal break-up, Kira (Kenya Miles) sleeps with Max (Wiley Wiggins, Dazed and Confused), a charming wreck who already has… Sara. His at-a-loss best friend (a comically belligerent Andrew Bujalski) does maddening battle on the front lines of Max’s emotional shortcomings, as Max decides to dabble in two new pursuits: an obsessive-tending interest in Kira, and (more fleetingly) in the mystery of whether he may in fact be an ass.

Set in San Francisco’s vivid Mission District, SXSW 2009 Film Festival favorite Sorry, Thanks charts deep fallibility, bad decisions, and the wreckage of self-delusion. In a laughy kind of way. Sorry, Thanks is a modern morality tale about the heartbreaking (and hilarious) perils of emotional idiocy.

Afterschool (Watch this on SundanceNOW for 99¢ with the code: AFTERSXSW)

Robert is an American student at an elite East Coast prep school who happens to videotape the tragic deaths of two classmates. Their lives become memorialized as part of an AV assignment designed to speed up the campus-wide healing process, but the result triggers paranoia and unease among students and teachers.

A riveting look at the dark side of youth in the media age. Afterschool was an official selection of the Cannes, Berlin, SXSW and New York Film Festivals, and was nominated for 2 Gotham awards and the Independent Spirit Award for Best First Feature.
