“Alpha Dog” to End Sundance

"Alpha Dog" to End Sundance

Alpha Dog,” directed by Nick Cassavetes and starring Justin Timberlake, will bring Sundance to a close starting Friday, January 27, at the Eccles Theater. The film is based on a true story of suburban teenagers who fall into the world of drug-dealing, and the indifference of parents towards the moral disintegration of their children. Timberlake commented that it is a perfect close to the festival: “At a festival for independent films, you can tackle more issues in a real way … and that’s why it’s appropriate.” Bob Tourtellotte reports for Reuters.
