The most acclaimed film in Sundance 2016 does not exist
Kristen Wiig stars in ‘Abraca Deborah’, the most acclaimed film this year during the Sundance film festival. The only problem is that it does not exist.
It all started on social media when the critic Mike Ryan wrote on twitter:
AbracaDeborah: Kristen Wiig in the role of a lifetime. James Marden never better. Still processing … but wow. #sundance

After that tweet, more critics joined in and the fake movie was a success.
Never thought a movie about a blind magician would make me cry, but AbracaDeborah is wondrous and Kristen Wiig is revelatory. #Sundance

ABRACADEBORAH: As much as I enjoy seeing Kristen Wiig in blackface, I have a lot of problems with this biopic. #sundance

Everybody started asking about this movie and it was the star creating problems to the festival so Sundance Fest had to answer:
Please, please maniacs – stop DM'ing us about whether or not there are tickets available to "AbracaDeborah"https://t.co/XDxZlad5eX

This is nothing but proof that social media is powerful.
