'Liberal Arts' and Sundance Possibilities  
Now this isn't really a sure thing, BUT... on Friday this popped up for Liberal Arts in Google Alerts:

When clicked on it led to a dead page. But through the magic of Google Cache, I conjured up the first of three pages of an article on Sundance's Non-Competition Premieres, the expected category for Liberal Arts:

Though Sundance tends to be stereotyped as the place for heavy, dour stories of shattered lives, it’s actually a great place for comedies. Think Napoleon Dynamite, Little Miss Sunshine, The Kids Are All Right and last year ‘s Our Idiot Brother and Cedar Rapids.

This year the non-competition premieres section is heavy with comedies, most of them fueled by women, among them Kirsten Dunst, Rashida Jones, Julie Delpy, Rebecca Hall, Ari Graynor and Parker Posey.

“There are lots of big female-driven comedies of different sorts. Everything from July Delpy’s 2 Days in New York, to [Dunst’s] Bachelorette and [Graynor’s] For a Good Time Call,” says Sundance director John Cooper. “You don’t always get that every year.” (Full disclosure: Entertainment Weekly is a sponsor of the Sundance festival’s premieres section.)

Another very notable presence in the festival is Spike Lee, who is bringing his coming-of-age drama Red Hook Summer, a sort-of sequel to his Do The Right Thing. Read on for more details of the full line-up…

the whole page screencap, really long. click for bigger (but still i had to shrink it, so ridiculously long, lol):

Unfortunately the second and third page are not recoverable with Google Cache. But there are a few things that lend credence to the article being legit and to Liberal Arts being at Sundance.

Given their own disclosure that they are a sponsor of the premieres section, it makes sense that EW would have the non-competition premieres info in advance of the official announcement which is scheduled for next Wednesday.

The formatting of the article parts we do have and of the Google Alert do seem to match, and going by the alphabetical presentation, it makes sense that Liberal Arts was probably on page 2.

Plus, I think a lot of people just expect Radnor's next film to be there since his last film, Happythankyoumoreplease premiered there in 2010.

Anyhoo, just thought it was interesting. And I guess we'll know for sure on Wednesday.

LOL @ EW screwing up the announcement and posting it too early. Too bad, that the full article isn't accessible anymore.

But good to see it at Sundance, even though it was sort of expected.

I thought Zac has just a small part in this, but on IMDB, he's listed pretty prominently.

That's just how the (dumb) imdb works. His part is really small.

it is because imdb has not been given the set billing order. since they can't really guess who should have top billing, imdb's default is to base it off of imdb starmeter (a star's popularity on imdb) so zac is second only to a person from twilight.

He wasn't named at all in the initial cast listing. He was added later, which put him at the top of the list.
