I Wanna Go to Sundance!!!


The Sundance film festival begins tonight. With a long history of bringing awesome movies to the world (Reservoir Dogs, Clerks, Little Miss Sunshine, Napoleon Dynamite, Sex, Lies and Videotape all debuted at the festival), Sundance has become the place to premiere your independent film. This year, I am most excited for Hamlet 2, about a High School drama teacher (played by Steve Coogan) who writes a musical sequel to Hamlet. Doesn't everything about that sound awesome?

I've always wanted to make the trek to Utah for Robert Redford's annual film festival (I've had a few friends go and return with stories of drinks with Parker Posey and film going with Laura Linney). I mean, what a better way to spend a week? Watching movies; wearing fun snowy weather clothes; perhaps hot tubbing with Peter Sarsgaard and Paul Rudd (I suppose their wives can join us). Sounds amazing. Maybe next year...
