2014 Sundance Film Festival Preview
The 2014 Sundance Film Festival, the world’s premier showcase for independent movies, is finally upon us. Running from Jan. 16-26 in the mountains of Park City, Utah, the fest will present 119 feature films representing 37 countries, culled from 4,057 submissions. Many top filmmakers, including Joel and Ethan Coen (Blood Simple, ’85), David O. Russell (Spanking the Monkey, ’94), and Darren Aronofsky (Pi, ’98), have debuted films at Sundance, and in recent years, the fest has premiered standout films like Winter’s Bone, Beasts of the Southern Wild, and last year’s Fruitvale Station. This year’s edition, meanwhile, has plenty to offer. From a Kristen Stewart as a guard at Guantanamo to an eye-opening doc on Mitt Romney, here are the most anticipated movies of Sundance ’14.
