WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – A boy from Wilmington is in the spotlight at Sundance.

A movie featuring Beau Wright will be screened at the annual film festival Monday.

The movie he is in is called Little Accidents. It's about the disappearance of a teenage boy in a small coal mining town.

The cast includes Elizabeth Banks, Boyd Holbrook, Chloë Sevigny, Jacob Lofland and Josh Lucas.
