Sundance 2024: ‘I Saw the TV Glow’ actors discuss film’s script, connections to upbringing

“I Saw the TV Glow” is breaking through the static of the horror genre.
After making their narrative film debut at Sundance 2021 with their lo-fi horror film “We’re All Going to the World’s Fair,” writer-director Jane Schoenbrun returned to this year’s festival with “I Saw the TV Glow.” The filmmaker’s A24-produced sophomore entry centers on lonely teenagers Owen (Justice Smith) and Maddy (Brigette Lundy-Paine) who find solace in their favorite television show, “The Pink Opaque.”
Smith, Lundy-Paine and cast member Ian Foreman spoke with the Daily Bruin’s Graciana Paxton at the Sundance Film Festival about the ways in which the coming-of-age horror explores media obsessions, isolation and identity.

Sundance 2024: With neon ’90s visuals, ‘I Saw the TV Glow’ is a haunting exploration of identity

All that glitters is gold – or pink – in Jane Schoenbrun’s “I Saw the TV Glow.”
The writer-director’s stunning sophomore narrative effort follows teenagers Owen (Justice Smith) and Maddy (Brigette Lundy-Paine) as the two seek to overcome feelings of loneliness and otherness through their shared love for a fictional ’90s late-night program, “The Pink Opaque.” With striking visual language, Schoenbrun fires on all cylinders, maximizing both style and substance through clarity of voice and a deeply original script in the beautifully haunting “I Saw the TV Glow.”
And glow it does, as the neon pinks, blues and greens that inform the film’s vivid aesthetic deliciously ooze from the screen.
