Postcard from Park City: The Coming-of-Age Tearjerker That's the Talk of Sundance

The next Fault in our Stars has arrived. Sundance's "game over" moment came early this year, with the sale of coming-of-age drama Me and Earl and the Dying Girl from newbie director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon. The film, starring Thomas Mann, Olivia Cooke, and RJ Cyler, sold to Fox Searchlight and Indian Paintbrush for a record $12 million. Ask any festival goer what they think, and they'll gush ... that is, if they've stopped weeping. Learn more here. see more

Jon Stewart Gives Blizzardgate Correspondents the Deep Freeze

The Daily ShowGet More: Daily Show Full Episodes,The Daily Show on Facebook,Daily Show Video Archive When a highly anticipated snowstorm doesn't quite live up to the "historic" hype, weather reporters could admit they were wrong—or they could "desperately cling to the original narrative like dingleberries on a sheep's ass," as Jon Stewart so eloquently put it on last night's Daily Show. In a segment called "Blizzapocalypsegeddon '15 - The White-Erdammergung," Stewart gleefully ripped apart the media's way-off-the-mark coverage of Winter Storm Juno, from The Weather Channel's bizarre CGI graphic of cars falling from a roof (meant to illustrate the dangers see more

Reese Witherspoon on Wild, Awards Nominations, and Not Making "Women's" Movies

The last time Reese Witherspoon was up for an Oscar—for 2005's Walk the Line—she waltzed off with the trophy for Best Actress. But crooning alongside Joaquin Phoenix seems easy compared to what Witherspoon takes on in Wild, an adaptation of Cheryl Strayed's beloved memoir and the movie that netted its leading lady her second Academy Award nomination. (Witherspoon also produced.) In portraying Strayed, who trekked more than 1,000 miles on the Pacific Coast Trail after the death of her mother and her marriage (and, in many ways, her former self), Witherspoon covers territory more rugged than anything she's tackled before—and see more

Postcards From Sundance: Bad Addictions, Odd Couples, and Travel Disasters

Over the past several days, we've been talking to the writers, actors, and producers who've come to the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, to promote their new projects. Here are five moments that strayed from the usual script. 1. When Ryan Reynolds and Ben Mendelsohn (pictured above) confessed their addictions. I asked the stars of the new film Mississippi Grind (which is about gamblers) what their real-life addictions are, and Reynolds' response was "Serial, the radio show" (he knows he's a little behind the curve on that one). Mendelsohn, by comparison, slammed a pack of cigarettes on see more
