Hello, friends! This week I find myself in sunny Salt Lake City for my third trip to the Sundance Film Festival. Did you know that any old jabroni off the street can go to Sundance, and it doesn’t have to cost a million dollars? Like if, for example, you have family in SLC to stay with and you buy the Salt Lake City Only ticket package? Sure, you’re less likely to get to see Q&As with cast and crew, but you still get to brag about how you “already saw that at Sundance” as movies come out for the rest of the year.
Anyway, the festival has a great lineup this year and as I looked through the program I earmarked dozens of contenders to fill up my 10-ticket dance card. Unfortunately I ended up with a very late ticket selection time slot and almost all of them were sold out, so this time around I have had to go a bit off the beaten path for my choices. Which is how I ended up with a ticket to my first movie of the fest, Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made.
