    Here's some clips from a panel in Sundance earlier this week that examined depictions of queer youth in several of this year's Sundance Film Festival films and expanded on how those stories relate to the recent media attention of suicide and queer youth in crisis.

    Poster Revealed For 'Ceremony' Starring Uma Thurman & Michael Angarano

    We love the grainy, half-blurry shot of Uma Thurman and Michael Angarano in this new poster for "Ceremony," the debut feature-length directorial debut of Max Winkler (son of Henry Winkler), as it perfectly captures the ragged heart romance that's central to the film.

    David O. Russell Says He Bailed On ‘Pride And Prejudice And Zombies’ Due To Budget Concerns

    One big project that many people are eager to see leap to the big screen has been moving along in fits and starts, without picking up enough steam to move forward. "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" has had an interesting development history so far. In late 2009, David O. Russell was brought on board to write and direct the picture, with Natalie Portman producing and set to star. Then in October last year, Russell left the picture, with Portman following suit shortly afterward (but staying on to produce). In November, Mike White filled in the empty director's chair only to vacate the position last week, just over two months after he signed on. At the time Russell left the picture, it appeared he was simply switching over to one of his own projects, the road-trip dramedy "Old St. Louis," but recently, he reveals he had some other reasons for leaving.
