Sundance Film Fest 2015: Women Directors–Zipper by Mora Stephens

Director: Mora Stephens

Zipper, the second film from Mora Stephens, received its world premiere at the Premieres section of the 2015 Sundance Film.

The film follows a potential political sex scandal through the eyes of the politician, played by Patrick Wilson.

Stephens had earlier made “Conventioneers,” which was also politically themed.

Variety critic described it as  an “odd hybrid of ‘Shame’ and a season-long subplot on ‘House of Cards,'” and “tawdry and cripplingly self-serious” feature, and predicted VOD and premium cable showings.
