Sundance Picks

The Sundance Film Festival has announced its 2009 selections (full list available here, PDF), and we have our eye on Dare, “about three privileged high school seniors who decide they can no longer ignore their deepest needs and take the biggest risk of their lives,” starring Emmy Rossum and featuring Ana Gasteyer, Alan Cumming, and Sandra Bernhard. Yes, it just so happens that we’re friends with Dare‘s (gay) screenwriter David Brind. (Though the more homoerotic short that appeared in Logo’s Short Film series might be more appealing to some.) That said, some of you plan on boycotting Sundance in some respect (Not attending? Not seeing the films once they’re bought?) out of deference to Proposition 8’s passing and the Mormon Church calling Utah home base, so this makes no difference to you.
