Sundance 2014: 'Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter' looks for gold
PARK CITY, Utah -- You probably never wondered what would happen if the heroine of “Nurse Betty” was a movie geek obsessed with buried treasure, but the Zellner Bros. have. The Austin, Texas-based indie filmmaking duo, David and Nathan (more on them separately), have made “Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter,” a quiet but bizarrely fascinating scripted film about basically just that premise. The movie premieres Monday in competition at the Sundance Film Festival.
