DO YOU SUNDANCE?

















I have been attending films at the Sundance Festival for years. I posted a lot about it last year here and here. In fact, some of my first dates with Nate included going to see films during the 2005 festival. I first realized that I loved him after dinner at the Foundry Grill and "Happy Endings" on the big screen.
One of the clues that 2008 was truly destined for greatness was when I received an email from the festival with my time slot to buy tickets. For the first time ever I went shopping for tickets the first day they went on sale. For those of you who aren't familiar with the festival, it's a lottery system and I've always been assigned the last day when nearly everything is sold out.
This year I drew up a best case scenario and subsequent scenarios because, as I've learned in the past, you always have to go with a back up plan. But, as 2008 is shaping up to be a fabulous year; I got every movie I flagged as first-choice.

Nate and I will see:
Sunshine Cleaning
Good Dick
Complete History of My Sexual Failures
Great Buck Head
Savage Grace

Amie and I will see:
The Last Word
Smart People {starring SJP}
Henry Poole is Here
