A.C.O.D. may sound like a mental disorder, but you’ll only wish it was after seeing Stu Zicherman’s film about an adult caught in the crossfire of his parents’ divorce. The premieres keep rolling on day 7!

A.C.O.D. 6:30P Eccles Theatre
Carter is a well-adjusted Adult Child of Divorce. So he thinks. When he discovers he was part of a divorce study as a child, it wreaks havoc on his family and forces him to face his chaotic past. Adam Scott’s increasingly befuddled everyman is flanked by vivacious comic performances from Catherine O’Hara and Amy Poehler as his stubborn mom and sassy stepmom, respectively.

Trailer alert: Sundance favorite YOUR SISTER'S SISTER

Filmmaker Lynn Shelton had a comedy hit at this year’s Sundance Film Festival with YOUR SISTER’S SISTER, a surprising and compelling exploration of the rivalry between contrasting sisters. There is Iris (Emily Blunt), a flighty professional whose best friend, Jack (Mark Duplass), is still grieving the loss of his brother one-year prior. Iris, who used to date Jack’s brother, invites Jack to her family’s remote cabin in the woods to find himself. Unbeknownst to Iris, her older sister, Hannah (Rosemarie DeWitt), a lesbian fresh out of a seven-year relationship, is laying low at the cabin, and a rowdy night of tequila drinking between Jack and Hannah kicks off a bizarre stretch of days — made even more hilariously awkward when Emily pops in for an unexpected visit.

In case you were wondering what one wears (let alone what three people wear) in the midst of a bizarre love triangle, the answer is plaid. At least that’s what self-taught director Lynn Shelton has in mind for her latest film offering, YOUR SISTER’S SITER, which screened at the Sundance Film Festival, and opens today.

NOBODY WALKS — Journey to Sundance 2012 with Ry Russo-Young & Lena Dunham

Article: NOBODY WALKS — Journey to Sundance 2012 with Ry Russo-Young & Lena Dunham

Because writer/director Lena Dunham cast herself in the lead role of her impressive breakout film TINY FURNITURE and because she picked her real life mother and sister to play her character Aura’s mother and sister, and because she shot the whole thing in their family’s Tribeca loft, there was a tendency to assume it was an intensely autobiographical film. Maybe not. Aura was a directionless slacker. Dunham is anything but. Her new HBO series, Girls, debuts in April, while her first work as a co-writer, Ry Russo-Young’s NOBODY WALKS premieres later this month in competition at the Sundance Film Festival.
