Crews adaptation selected for Sundance

The Hawk is Dying, based on the novel by Harry Crews, premieres next year at Sundance. Directed by Julian Goldberger, and written by Crews and Goldberger, the film centers on “a Gainesville, Fla., man who tries to alter his life as an auto upholsterer by training a wild, red-tailed hawk.” The cast includes Paul Giamatti, Michael Pitt, and Michelle Williams.
