    Sundance Review: Lynn Shelton’s 'Laggies' Starring Keira Knightley, Chloe Moretz & Sam Rockwell

    Given that the arrested development subgenre of comedy is chiefly the domain of men and man children, it’s nice to see the field finally tackled from a refreshing female perspective.

    Sundance Review: ‘Frank’ Starring Michael Fassbender, Domhnall Gleeson & Maggie Gyllenhaal
