As Sundance continues over the weekend, The Hollywood Reporter is catching up with the actors, directors and creators making their way to Park City. Below are a few highlights from Friday at the festival.
►Adam Scott and Jason Schwartzman stopped by THR's Sundance Lounge to chat about their new film, The Overnight, which premiered at the festival on Friday. In a review, THR's critic wrote that the title was a "sporadically amusing but not massively well-endowed throwback to that quaint relic, the swinger comedy."
► Meanwhile, Cynthia Nixon and Christopher Abbott shared their experiences making James White. In a review on Friday, THR's critic deemed the title "a viscerally acted drama whose rich visual and sonic textures intensify the plunge into the title character's messy life.
►Kristen Wiig, Alexander Skarsgard and Bel Powley shared a bit about Diary of a Teenage Girl, a drama set in 1970s San Francisco. The title is part of the U.S. dramatic competition at the festival.
►A Sundance panel moderated by THR's film reporter Rebecca Ford featured a lively chat on lessons learned while trying to make a career in Hollywood. The discussion included a debate over the practice of buying viewership.
►Film finance was a topic at a THR Talks panel moderated by writer Sharon Swart. "I'm a gigantic proponent of crowdsourcing," producer and film executive John Sloss explained in the discussion.
