No Irish joy at Sundance 2010
Winter’s Bone, the winner of the Grand Jury Prize at this year’s Sundance Festival, which ended last weekend, concerns a girl who has to track down her father, a crystal-meth manufacturer, after he skips bail and abandons his disabled wife. It could be fantastic, but, my word, it sounds like a Sundance film. Elsewhere at the event, our own Ken Wardrup’s His & Hers picked up rave reviews, but couldn’t quite manage one of the top prizes.
Meanwhile, at the rival, slightly funkier Slamdance Festival, Conor Horgan’s excellent One Hundred
Mornings secured a Special Jury Mention.
