Wordplay media roundup #4

The indieWIRE folks surveyed 50 critics and writers who attended the Sundance Film Festival and provided a list of top vote-getters. In the documentary category, Wordplay is one of the runners-up to the film that won the jury prize, Iraq in Fragments.

An Australian site mentions "the regular geniuses" who compete at Stamford. "The film beautifully delves into the mind of those who are ferocious intellectuals and the result is a wonderfully funny, exciting and moving piece. I'm not a crossword fan but Wordplay is a surefire winner."

According to Bob Mackey, Wordplay is slated for a limited release on June 16. Can anyone else confirm that date?
