Sundance 2013

At Sundance this year the emphasis seems to have been on sexy women and their stories: in ‘Two Mothers’ Naomi Watts and Robin Wright play two friends who struggle to navigate through life despite their naughty behavior. Other beautiful stars include Nicole Kidman who lead a stellar cast in the Gothic fairytale, ‘Stoker’ and Amanda Seyfried in ‘Lovelace’. Felicity Jones, plays a foreign exchange student causing chaos in her adopted family in ‘Breathe In’. ‘Fruitvale,’ made by 26 year-old Ryan Coogler won the Grand Jury prize and was promptly snapped up by Weinstein but the big news was the $10 million - a festival record - handed over by Fox for Toni Collette’s coming-of-age ‘The Way, Way Back.’ After all the screenings, all came in from the cold to gather at the Blue Door Lounge for serious A-list socializing.

Film Love in a Cold Climate

Film Love in a Cold Climate

Kate Bosworth, Kirsten Dunst and Emma Roberts all froze in the name of fashion at the Sundance Film Festival’s Opening Weekend.

Park City, Utah was the place to be seen last weekend as the Hollywood glitterati rolled in for the Sundance Film Festival. Marina Abramovic, a famous performance artist, doesn’t shy away from performing for this crowd and also has a documentary to promote titled Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present. Another noteable actress attending the festival and the screening of Julia Verdin’s new film, The Middle of Nowhere, is Emayatzy Corinealdi. This year Sundance turned out to be one low-key, recession-friendly, cozy film festival with not a single sighting of Atelier Versace or anything approaching the bling of a Golden Globes red carpet. This was about enjoying loads of snow and going for fun cocktails after the film premieres, not round to Elton John’s. James Marsden and Joshua Jackson bromanced each other at the afterparty for Celeste and Jesse Forever on Friday night at the Park City Museum. Rashida Jones, who wrote it, was joined by a gang including Quincy Jones and Emma Roberts. And because fabulous venues in Park City are not two-a-penny it wasn’t many hours later that Emily Blunt arrived for a fresh cocktail party to celebrate her film Your Sister’s Sister. Meanwhile Lizzy Caplan and Kirsten Dunst got down to business at the after party for their film, Bachelorette – now, that sounds like something fun worth waiting for – but it was down to Kate Bosworth to up the glamour stakes the next night for the premiere of Black Rock, though it was out of her chic crimson sheath and into sweaters for the follow-up dinner. Because for that Utah weather even the A-list need a more practical form of defense.
