Sundance 2015: 18 Movies You Won’t Want to Miss

We are just one day away from the Sundance Film Festival, and whether you are attending the festival or not, you should be getting pretty excited.

Will this year’s Sundance movies make the same kind of impression on critics and audiences alike? Time will tell, but the odds are in their favor. Sundance seems to have great taste in motion pictures, and it seems like just about anything playing in Park City this weekend could very well be the next big thing in cinema.
