Ansel Elgort - H 2015

In other festival news, Lena Dunham documents her weather-related trials on Instagram, 'Cobain' director throws a fit, and Spike Lee escapes early.

While Park City embraced temps near 50 degrees Jan. 26, the East Coast got pummeled by Juno, causing canceled flights and delays. 

Lena Dunham documented her trials on Instagram (she finally got out of Park City on a red-eye to New York via Atlanta Jan. 25), while Spike Lee escaped on an early flight back to New York. On the way to Sundance, Ansel Elgort enjoyed the kindness of strangers when allowed to cut the Shake Shack line in JFK’s Terminal 4; upon landing in Salt Lake City, he was given a lift by a gaggle of smitten women when his ride didn’t show.

Brett Morgen's documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck hasn’t been easy to promote. Kurt Cobain’s only child, Frances Bean, is an executive producer but declined to do any interviews at the fest. (She did pose at the premiere with her onetime estranged mother, Courtney Love.) Meanwhile, Morgen didn’t help matters by throwing a fit inside THR’s Sundance Lounge. His attitude was sparked by THR’s mixed review of the film, which debuts May 4 on HBO.
