The 2014 Sundance Film Festival is in full swing in Park City, Utah, and critics and distributors alike are already raving about this year’s entrants. In its 30th year, the festival, which runs through January 26th, features 123 feature film entries in addition to a number of shorts, documentaries, and more. The first screening of the festival was Whiplash, a movie about a jazz-drummer conservatory student with a sadistic task-master of a teacher. Ty Burr, of, calls Whiplash, “easily the best first shot fired at a Sundance I’ve been to.” Other breakouts from Sundance include Infinitely Polar Bear, starring Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana, Happy Christmas, starring Anna Kendrick and Lena Dunham, and Love is Strange, starring John Lithgow and Alfred Molina.
For the first time since his directorial debut, Garden State, Zach Braff returns to Sundance with his new film, Wish I Was Here, which was partially funded through a Kickstarter campaign. Also gaining buzz was Richard Linklater’s envelope-pushing film, Boyhood, which stars Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette. To create Boyhood, Linklater filmed Ellar Coltrane from the ages of 7 to 19, for around two weeks per year, and built the film’s story around this footage. Two documentaries at this year’s Sundance Film Festival have also garnered a great deal of attention for their controversial subject matter. Fed Up, which is narrated by Katie Couric, lays the blame for America’s obesity epidemic on the federal government and the food conglomerates. However, the food industry has been quick to defend itself, using their advertising practices and nutritional labeling as evidence in their favor. On Sunday, Happy Valley, the documentary about Jerry Sandusky and the Penn State sexual abuse scandal made its debut.
Matt Sandusky, the adopted son of Jerry Sandusky, who was also a victim, made the trip to Park City to support filmmaker Amir Bar-Lev, and answered several questions from reporters. Writes of the film, “The narrative is less about Sandusky and more about a framing of American and sports culture, where distraction trumps all and serious issues are swept under the rug.” The 2014 Sundance Film Festival runs through January 26th.
