    "Kids" More Than All Right: Cholodenko Shines At Sundance

    Introducing the world premiere of Lisa Cholodenko's "The Kids are All Right," Sundance's John Cooper joked that if anything bad were to happen during the screening, "there would go the independent film industry."

The audience laughed, even cheered (at a soon-to-be-classic scene in which "Kids" co-stars Annette Bening and Mark Ruffalo s...

    "One thing that I love about playing characters based on real people," James Franco told indieWIRE at the Sundance Film Festival yesterday, "is that it gives me this extra jolt of responsibility where I feel like I especially need to get it right because I owe it to the original person or the people that love that person and respect that person. I feel much more obligation to just do my homework and really do everything I can to nail that role. And the other side of it is, usually when I'm portraying a real person it's somebody that I love or at least respect in a lot of ways. So I want to celebrate them and do the best job I can.
