No Ir­ish joy at Sun­dance 2010

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

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.
