» Preview: The 10 Least Depressing-Sounding Movies at Sundance

by Nigel Smith, published on January 16, 2013 - 10:00 AM

For many, independent film is synonymous with movies that deal with depressing subject matter Hollywood is too timid to tackle. And given the Sundance Film Festival's stature as the world's most important independent film festival, those same people probably see the annual Park City event as one where only sad works come to nest.

Well, they couldn't be further from the truth. Because for every dreary Sundance hit like "Like Crazy" or "Precious," there are countless ones like "Little Miss Sunshine" and "Clerks" that provide a sense of joy in place of a good cry. With this year's edition of the festival just days away from launching, here's our list of the ten least depressing-sounding movies premiering in Park City.


3. 'Touchy Feely'

Fresh off of charming audiences with her comedy "Your Sister's Sister," indie fave Lynn Shelton is back in Park City with her latest ensemble piece, "Touchy Feely," starring her "Sister" star Rosemarie DeWitt. "Touchy Feely" centers on Abby (DeWitt), a massage therapist who develops an aversion to bodily contact — not the best thing for her day job. DeWitt's real-life husband Ron Livington ("Sex and the City"), Ellen Page and the always hilarious Allison Janney co-star.


6. 'The East'

Sundance darling Brit Marling reunites with her "Sound of My Voice" director (and co-writer) Zal Batmanglij for "The East," a timely thriller about an ex-FBI agent (Marling) who infiltrates an anarchist collective suspected of attacking big corporate CEOs. Once embedded within the group, however, she soon finds herself on their side. Patricia Clarkson, Ellen Page and Alexander Skarsgård all co-star, proving that Batmanglij has risen up in the ranks in the two years it's been since he first made his mark in Park City.
