This Clip From “Girlhood” Is the Perfect Antidote To “Boyhood’”

Yes!
Shine Bright

The Sundance Film Festival has started, and one of the movies to come out of it is Celina Sciamma’s “Girlhood,” the coming-of-age story we all need. It’s about Marieme, a Black teenager growing up in the projects near Paris, and how she falls in with a tough girl gang. This scene, which Vulture premiered exclusively today, is a joyous, giddy celebration of friendship. These girls, dancing to Rihanna in a hotel room they rented with money they stole, are the perfect embodiment of that soul-swallowing, bone-crushing female friendship you experience in your teens. The film opens in New York on January 30th, and will certainly show up at a indie movie theater near you. [Vulture]

This Parody Fits Every Indie Movie Cliche Into Under 3 Minutes

Not ANOTHER Sundance Movie!

Remember that Cracked parody about Oscar-nominated movies? Just in time for the Sundance Film Festival, indie movies now have a parody all their own. “Not Another Sundance Movie” was created by the comedy group Tastes Funny, and it’s packed with every indie cliche you can imagine. Vintage pickup trucks. People crying in the front seat of a car. Little children dancing. Depressing landscapes. It’s like attending Sundance without leaving the comfort of your own bed.

"On The Road" (NSFW)
K-Stew is topless, giving a double handjob in "On The Road." Watch »

Kate Bosworth showed up at Sundance to promote her starring role in the new film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s autobiographical novel Big Sur, directed by her fiancé Michael Polish. They certainly chose an odd time to release a Kerouac movie, what with that other one coming out and all. I’m curious to see if Polish’s version features any topless double handjobs. Anyway, Kate wore this leathery retro go-go getup to the premiere. The lady looks good in pretty much everything, and while this outfit is definitely very adventurous, I think it’s slightly too literal to be a hit. It could’ve used some contemporary updates to bring it back down to earth circa 2013. What say you?

What do you think of Kate's retro look?

  • Women directors fare far better in indie films than they do in the mainstream Hollywood machine, according to a new study out of this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Women are still woefully underrepresented in all filmmaking roles in Sundance films, however. [Guardian UK]

  • Indian caste councils have asked for “greater understanding” for families for committing domestic violence against their sisters and daughters, AKA so-called “honor killings.” Women’s rights advocates in India suspect 10,000 people are murdered by “honor killings” each year, usually women killed by family members.

Dakota Fanning is looking super, super cute in this crop top and shimmery embroidered miniskirt combo straight outta the Louis Vuitton pre-fall 2013 collection — this is one of my favorite looks of hers in a while. But I just want to call some attention to the fact that Dakota went sleeveless, belly-baring, and fancy-free at Sundance, where temperatures are maxing out at 35 degrees and most of the attendees have been photographed in Uggs and earmuffs. Props! I say this from New York City, which weather reports have currently classified as “frigid.”
