Sundance Report: Day 2

So the big news of the day was that Jon Gosselin (is that how you spell his name, I don’t care enough to look it up) is an even bigger douche in 2010. Fitting, considering that ‘Douchebag’ premiered yesterday at Sundance. Apparently he was heckled and told to go home by locals in Park City. Pretty irrelevant yet completely hilarious.

As far as movies go, the Natalie Portman produced ‘Hesher’ had its world premiere in the U.S. Dramatic Competition. Portman didn’t attend due to her filming Darren Aronofsky’s new film ‘Black Swan’, but her co-star Joseph Gordon-Levitt and director Spencer Susser made the mandatory rounds.  She did however send her regards via  video which got a cute blurb from

Festival director John Cooper upstaged her, though, all but blushing after Portman blew a kiss and cooed “I love you” to the audience. “Wow, that was big,” Cooper said from the stage. “Seeing her lips like that? So sexy! And I don’t even like girls!” No worries, John; she’s known to have that effect on people.

Also competing in the U.S. Dramatic Competition was ‘Obselidia’, and ‘happythankyoumoreplease’ which received a 4 out 5 star rating. A fun fact about ‘happythankyoumoreplease’ is that the film was written and directed by ‘How I Met Your Mother’ star, Josh Radnor. The film, in which he also starred in, marks his directorial debut.

On the documentary front, first features included ‘Family Affair’, ‘His & Hers,’ ‘ Waiting For Superman’ and ‘The Oath.’
