Sundance Here I Come!


I'm wild with excitement! The Sundance Film Festival begins today, and we have tickets!

Despite having lived in Utah for the majority of my life, I was always under the mistaken impression that one had to be somebody special to get tickets to one of world's most famous film festivals. Luckily for us, some tickets are reserved for locals, we signed up early, and my family and I will be attending four screenings over the next two weeks.

Today we'll be seeing Austenland (pictured above), an adaptation of Shannon Hale's novel concerning Austenitis at its most extreme. I can't wait to get up to Park City, see the movie, and just enjoy the overall atmosphere.

I'll definitely be providing updates about the festival, whether I spot any noteworthy celebs (generally, by my definition, those who have starred in beloved period pieces), and providing a few pictures. In the meantime, I wish you a wonderful weekend!

Ruby, you're absolutely right. The atmosphere has been incredible, but that's hardly surprising since it's a mecca for creativity. Everybody is so witty and charismatic which seems to enchance audience engagement. It almost reminds me of the atmosphere of a quality theatre production.
