Sundance Is Busy “Breaking Conventions”

Sundance Is Busy "Breaking Conventions"

While many people are lamenting that the Sundance Film Festival seems to be going more and more mainstream, this year’s festival is hosting a number of undeniably unconventional films that are anything but ordinary. Roger Ebert comments on “Somebodies” in particular, a story about a group of young African-American men trying to live life and “make sense of the senselessness that is American today” (as described by Sundance). The film has no political or social agenda, it’s just about ordinary guys who are “very, very funny because they don’t seem to know they’re in a movie…they’re performing to celebrate themselves.” Ebert also comments on “Kinky Boots”, “Little Miss Sunshine”, and “Friends With Money”.
