I am like a child waiting for her first trip to Disney World. I have literally had difficulty sleeping this week in anticipation for SUNDANCE! So far, we have plans for three films and I'll even be testing out my skiing skills (wish me luck). More to come!The Lie: http://sundance.slated.com/2011/films/thelie_sundance2011
Once an idealistic young man with artistic aspirations, Lonnie is stuck and doesn’t quite know it. Working at an unfulfilling job, he longs to realize his lifelong dream of becoming a musician. When his wife, Clover, is presented with a career opportunity that could provide them with the stability she craves (but one that goes against their beliefs), Lonnie cannot muster the resolve to endure another day at work, so he tells a lie—a life-altering lie that he cannot take back.
The Lie takes us on a journey of self-discovery as it astutely examines what it means to be an adult, and the steps we all take to get there . . . eventually. Slacker: http://sundance.slated.com/2011/films/slacker_sundance2011

If you were as inventive as Richard Linklater, the result would be Slacker. Attenberg: http://sundance.bside.com/2011/films/attenberg_sundance2011
Attenberg embraces the abstract and theatrical in choreographed interludes and wild-animal pantomimes, but provides an essential emotional point of access in the profound father-daughter bond. An unconventional coming-of-age film, Attenberg is the story of a girl-woman who comes to terms with sex and death as natural parts of life
