Sundance Boys to Watch

After combing through a myriad films at Sundance, The Inside Source rounds up the top cuties we feel you’d be wise to follow this year. 

(1) Nick Robinson (Toy’s House) is a Sundance virgin this year. At 17 years old, the budding actor has the swagger and acting chops of a baby Brad Pitt. 

(2) Miles Teller (Spectacular Now). Costarring with Shailene Woodley (the daughter from The Descendants), Teller gives commanding performance to catapult his career. Film releases July 2013 in theaters.

(3) Boyd Holbrook (Very Good Girls). The man forming a triangle between of Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olson, this model-turned-actor is creating heat in the movie directed by Naomi Foner (Jake and Maggie Gyllenhall’s mother).

(4) David Lambert (Lifeguard). Since age 3 he’s been doing theater. Now that he’s playing teen lover to the older lifeguard Kristen Bell, our little Lambert has grown up.

Sundance Premiere: Jobs
Here’s the first clip released online of the Steven Jobs Film called entitled, Jobs. The Inside Source heard actor Josh Gad get asked at the Sundance premiere if he felt similarities in real life with Steve Wozniak, Apple’s cofounder (portrayed in the clip). ”Well, we’re similar in the sense that we both have weight problems” he said to a laughing audience. The real Steve Wozniak who saw the scene told GMA the next day, “What I saw was just so far from anything that really happened or said in those days”. The controversy begins. The film hits theaters April 19, 2013.

Star Director at Sundance: Ryan Coogler of Fruitvale

Every Sundance Festival usually has “that movie” on everyones lips by a first time director. Last year it was Beasts of the Southern Wild. This year it’s 26 year old Director/Writer Ryan Coogler, who received a standing ovation at multiple screenings and nabbed 2 awards closing night for Fruitvale. The film is about the story of Oscar Grant, a 22 year old Bay area native who was unjustly killed by a cop on New Years day 2009. Back then, witnesses to the killing posted the clandestine phone video onto YouTube stirring the whole nation. Fruitvale portrays the last 24 hours of this mans life, and punches you in the gut in unimaginable ways.

Sundance Premiere: ACOD
We all worship Amy Poehler, but who does she worship? At the premiere for A.C.O.D. which The Inside Source attended, Amy told us “it was such a dream come true to get to play with Catherine [O’ Hara]. We agree and have been obsessed with Catherine since her SCTV days. In the film, Amy plays the new bitchy trophy wife of Catherine’s ex-husband. “It was really fun to play such a bitch” said Amy. The indie A.C.O.D. (which stands for “Adult Children of Divorce”) plays in the spirit of Flirting with Disaster with jabs on the neurosis of divorce. The stellar cast also included Adam Scott, Richard Jenkins, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Clark Duke, Ken Howard, Jessica Alba, and Jane Lynch.

Sundance Premiere: Big Sur

Wednesday was the screening for Big Sur, the book adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s time spent in a cabin by the water. We were thrilled to witness the feature film, full of striking nature visuals mixed with ample voiced-over Kerouac words, sprinkled with storyline from fine actors. Oh and yes, alcohol, alcohol, and some more alcohol. The demons were plenty in this tale. 

Director Michael Polish who thanked Calvin Klein for feeding the cast before the screening, included Kate Bosworth who plays not only a role in the film, but also his girlfriend in real life. “It was a beast of burden” said Polish on adapting the classic book. “It’s a great Rolling Stone song but it was a hell of a movie to make”. Costar Josh Lucas gushed “I have been a lover of Kerouac for a very long time. He just kicks you in the nuts and says ‘this is who you are’.”

When asked by an audience member about the status of the films purchase, the cast defended it’s experimental purity. “It’s a true independent” said lead actor Jean Marc-Barr (who you may remember from The Big Blue 25 years ago). “This film was done for charity, for love of Kerouac. Right now it’s a baby and it was just born tonight. If you try to put in a category of Hollywood films it’s impossible. It’s a new baby, and its going to live, and that’s what should be celebrated really. Cue loud applause. Viva independent cinema.

Sundance Dispatch:  Day 8
"Thank you all so much for coming to the last screening of Lifeguard,"said Director Liz W. Garcia for her movie that stars Kristen Bell which The Inside Source was thrilled to attend. “In spite of my hangover, my overall puffiness, headache, and incredible fatigue where I’m wondering if any of my organs will fail at any moment, I am not ready to be done with this experience of being at Sundance. Being here and being able to show the film to attractive people like yourselves has been the water green crossing on the red velvet cupcake. It’s been the most rewarding experience of my life, don’t tell me child, or my husband.” The Sundance programmers call today, “the hump day”. Now we know why.
