While I do believe part 1 of this crazy adventure we call Sundance will be a hard act to follow, the images taking up space on my camera beg to differ. We left off with shenanigans galore, and carry that theme right to the boarding gate at SLC airport.
I like to call this series, 'Kirsten Dunst kind of blows'
She couldn't be bothered to stop for a photo (well girl, here's to
hoping you look like a crapsicle in loads of photos out there!)
Thankfully I was working my paparazzi magic, snapping
loads of pics as she walked out
Let's be real, I could only hate on her for a minute .
She was totally adorbs looking, and happens to be in
one of the greatest movies EVER...Drop Dead Gorgeous
(and she is a dead ringer for one of my besties...Stacey Quinn Gohl)
Liv Tyler in town to promote Robot & Frank
Stop it, could she be any cuter? I covet her entire look.
This film was not up our alley for seeing, but I do love
me some Lake Bell. She wrote and directed one of the funniest
short films we were lucky enough to see at Sundance 2011.
Kate Bosworth, also in town to promote
Black Rock. She has acne. Doesn't that make
you feel better about yourself, in this moment?
Nia Vardalos in town to promote
Elizabeth Olsen in town to
Senior photo...I feel straight JC Penneys photo
studio including this pic, but like I said before,
I heart me some Dan in Real Life,
and Britt Robertson is totally adorbs!
Jason Ritter. I love me some Parenthood,
so was excited to spot him on Main Street
Oh Lil Jon...always at Sundance.
Oakley sponsors him, so he just gets to run
around town with a snowboard under his arm.
He really is a little guy.
The Minnesotan in me fell in love with him in
high school, when Fargo hit theaters
Kate Bosworth IS JUST LIKE US! After she ate a
sandwich (ugh, she tore off the crust) she checked
her teeth and face in the mirror. JUST LIKE US, people!!
(I for sure should work undercover for US Weekly)
After a ridiculous day of of celeb spottings on Main Street, and dinner at our favorite thai restaurant in town (our hubbies do meet up with us for dinner, so that is probably a good sign that we aren't totally out of control...right?), we woke early the next morning to get to the theater for back-to-back films (thankfully at the same theater). Even with tickets, you get in line to get into the theater. Depending on the film, the line forms early! We got there a bit earlier than needed because we wanted to get seats front and center because Mary Beth's favzy actress, Allison Janney was in the first film we were seeing, Liberal Arts. Our hope was that she could snap a cheesy BFF pic with Allison at the end of the screening and director/actors Q&A.
Oh, remember that BFF shot we were planning on with Mary Beth and Allison Janney? Would you believe the only cast members to show up for the screening were the two dudes above! OMG-athon, we felt so cheated! I must say in my 6 years of festival film seeing, I have never been to a screening where the cast didn't show. C'est la vie, we got a snack and got in line for the next film we were seeing.
Speaking of the next film, we went into it quite blindly! We saw that two of our favorite actors were in it and excitedly purchased the tickets for the world premiere screening. The film was called The Surrogate (update: the name of the movie must have confused the heck out of many...the film is now titled, The Sessions) so duh, we all thought it was going to be about a surrogate pregnancy. Duh, right? Well...not so much. Have you ever in your life heard of SEX SURROGACY? Me neither! Let me just be honest in saying that for the first 20 minutes of the film, I tried my hardest to figure out how a pregnancy was going to come into play...which of course it never did. I always read film synopses for all the films I hope to see, but for some reason I didn't read this one.
Okay, this was my little 'camera over the shoulder shot',
so I wouldn't look super obnoxious, but could show that
the cast sits in the audience to watch the film. In this case,
William H. Macy was in the theater to watch his film, The Surrogate.
The blond women in the left foreground turned out to
be the women characterized by Helen Hunt in the film.
John Hawkes (remember this name, come award season...mark my word),
John Hawkes, William H. Macy and Helen Hunt
and after an intense morning and afternoon we were off to Main Street to sneak into a couple more parties!!! We are totally naughty by nature when left to our own devices! We had to make a pitstop by the Sorel party, as they gave us some amazing discounts last year on boots and for sure wanted that hook up again. But...the party moved to a more secure location (no, we take no blame...haaa) and we walked in the front door, behind a group of guys who we assumed were working the party, as they all had on brand new boots. So, before we got busted, we requested our discounts and got the heck out of dodge! We are nuts, I can acknowledge that when I am removed from the excitement!
