Sundance Regular Mark Duplass Explains How the Festival Changed His Life And What to Expect From Him This Year

Back in January 2005, Mark Duplass and his brother Jay Duplass debuted their first feature length film, THE PUFFY CHAIR, at the Sundance Film Festival. That fateful night in Park City would spark a career that has seen the duo flourish into two of the most influential names in American independent film.

Thank God for you. Or Goddess. Or maybe just Thank Goodness, goddammit. It’s about time for a breakthrough female-penned and starred bona fide hit, one that inspires more of the same ridiculous editorial content like “Hey, are women funny?” Trampling its way over MEAN GIRLS and HOUSE BUNNY (sorry – but both of those scripts were funny but slightly overwritten), it’s not only laugh out loud hi-larious, but also truly crosses over to the boys without hiding that it’s solely about the girls. Moreover — what Manohla said – the film has some serious content exploring the nature of female friendship and the female sense of self.

Kristen Wiig does Suzanne Somers

Kristen Wiig does Suzanne Somers

Kristen Wiig is the funniest woman on TV. Forget Tina Fey. She is the reason to watch SNL. She’s a brilliant comedic actress. Her characters Penelope, Gilly, the Target Lady, and Judy Grimes are legends in the making. She also does a mean Nancy Pelosi. Another legend, Suzanne Somers, is less known these days for…
