DesertSun: "Outsourced" reels in crowds on opening night

Outsourced,” a low-budget American film shot mostly in India with no major stars, filled the 1,100-seat Palm Springs High School auditorium Thursday to launch the 18th Palm Springs International Film Festival. And festival officials say more crowds are on the way. The festival will present 523 screenings of 254 films from 73 nations before the event closes Jan. 15–all festival records. A half-dozen people interviewed after the screening all raved about the film; it was the U.S. premiere for the comedy that follows a Seattle salesman on his journey to India to train his replacement. Bruce Fessier and Maggie Downs report.
