Sundance Film Festival revealed its full slate of features for the 2019 iteration of the annual cinephile gathering in Park City, Utah today. The lineup includes new documentaries centered on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Miles Davis and Leonard Cohen, as well as the Awkwafina-led flick The Farewell and Joe Talbot's The Last Black Man in San Francisco.

Also on the docket is a feature titled Honey Boy directed by Alma Har'el and written by Shia LaBeouf. LaBeouf will star in the film alongside FKA Twigs, Lucas Hedges and Natasha Lyonne. The film, an autobiographical interpretation of LaBeouf's early career, is being described as "a child TV star and his ex-rodeo clown father facing their stormy past through time and cinema."

It'll mark Twigs' major picture debut. She's kept a relatively low profile this year, save for starring in an Apple commercial and collaborating with A$AP Rocky on "Fukk Sleep." There's still no word on when her much anticipated sophomore album is coming, and she's intent on keeping the mystery alive. In the meantime, Honey Boy will premiere in January.
