The film presents a sharp, funny and often quite touching portrait of Rivers, who at age 75, still struggles with both her insecurities and her ability to find steady work. Though as enthusiastic as the audience was for the film at a screening yesterday, Rivers upstaged herself at the Q&A afterwards. Following a standing ovation, she spent nearly 20 minutes responding to a slew of compliments and questions, putting the audience in hysterics a good two dozen times. The entire Q&A is available here, but indieWIRE has also...

    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...
