Oh wow, this year at the Sundance Film Festival was Cuh-razy! Was it the films we saw, the parties we snuck into...or were we just crazy? Probably a decent combo of all three. This was for sure the greatest festival I have attended!
We danced late into the night. We had a blast as the DJ pumped out some of our favorite tunes. I pause and wonder what that dance floor would have looked like if the four of us weren't ripping it up? We finally decided to walk back to our condo when we remembered we had to be up bright and early the next morning for a film premiere. Boy oh boy...did we make memories that night! The balls to the walls mentality we called on that night definitely didn't waiver the entire trip, just keep reading!
The next morning we headed to the theater to see Wish You Were Here. This Australian film was directed and co-written by Kieran Darcy-Smith (he wrote the film with his wife, Felicity Price, who also starred in the film). The plot of the film is about two sisters and their partners (new boyfriend for one and husband for the other) carefree journey to Cambodia, but only three of the four return home to Australia. The crazy cinematography brilliantly played out the classic themes of love, deception and corruption, leaving me to wonder who of the three who returned to Australia knows more than they are saying about what really happened in Cambodia. It was a thriller in every sense of the word (I may or may not have grabbed the stranger sitting next to me at one point in the movie). The cast was Australian, but the acting in this films leads me to hope and think we will be seeing much more of them!
The pinnacle of screenings at Sundance is the Q&A
with the director & the cast of the film.
The producers and cast (the producers are flanking the cast).
I think Joel Edgerton is going to blow up.
He was incredible in this film and when we saw him
about town he was definitely one of the 'it' guys of the festival.
It is such fun to see a film, and then see the director
and the cast around town.
If you have a quick second, here is the film trailer. So good, I already await its release so I can see it again!!
I am probably 1 of 7 people in
Park City who even have a cluezy
who Cisco Adler is...yet, he seems
to be there every year!
Ari Graynor: Celeste and Jesse Forever
Andy Samberg: Celeste and Jesse Forever
Emma Roberts: Celeste and Jesse Forever
Laura Prepon, from That 70s Show...she doesn't
appear to age like a fine wine, if you catch my drift.
Duncan & Jonnie from The Buried Life
James Mardsen, in town to promote The Bachelorette
(movie, not shitty spin-off television show...who am I
kidding, I totally watch that show!)
Anne Heche in town to promote That's What She Said
What to say about this film...the cast was spot on (who doesn't heart them some Andy Samberg?) and the push and pull between the lead characters of this romantic comedy was very reminiscent of one of my favorite movies, When Harry Met Sally. Enough said!
Elijah Wood, Andy Samberg & Rashida Jones
Can you see that snow blowing? Brrrrrrr.

Amanda and I with David Burtka of E! News

cover up my crazy snow/hat hair) Could David be any cuter?
I think not! Neil Patrick Harris is one lucky dude!
