    New Poster & Images From Joe Swanberg's 'Drinking Buddies' With Anna Kendrick & Olivia Wilde

    Joe Swanberg may have directed over a dozen films in the past eight years, but none of them have ever really gotten as much mainstream attention as his latest. “Drinking Buddies” premiered at SXSW this spring and it showcased Swanberg’s ability to make a more mainstream film with a starrier cast tha...

    Anna Kendrick Spills Deets on Joe Swanberg's All-Star 'Drinking Buddies': "Maybe there's an orgy that I'm not involved in."

    Sundance '11 Review: 'Uncle Kent' Sees Joe Swanberg Entering New Territory But Doesn't Go Far Enough

    It's hard to believe that this is the first year a Joe Swanberg joint found its way to Park City. Festival circuits tend to consume these micro-indies like they'll expire the next morning, so why hasn't one of the godfathers of the movement received an invitation until now? The same goes for fellow "leader" Andrew Bujalski and another very talented colleague Aaron Katz.
