Sundance Spotlight: Ellen Page, SJP in Smart People


I have been sulking ever since I couldn't into the premiere of Smart People at Sundance. The cast is fantastic and the buzz surrounding it has been good. The family dramedy stars Dennis Quaid as an acerbic widowed professor with some sassy kids (including Vanessa, played by Ellen Page) whose life gets complicated when he falls in love with his former student (Sarah Jessica Parker), and his adopted brother (Thomas Haden Church) re-enters his life.

After the jump there are a couple clips from the movie, featuring Ellen Page once again making wisecracks like someone beyond her years. I'm still sad that I didn't get to a screening for this one, but the clips help a little. To check them out,

LOVED this movie. I expected the standard Hollywood fare, but it was so smartly written, with sharply drawn characters and witty dialogue. It is SO much better than Family Stone, for those doubters out there. And Thomas Hayden Church stole every scene he was in.

raieven I totally agree! While I was watching the first clip, I was thinking why they heck did they make Family Stone II?

Ellen sort of reminded me of Rachel McAdams in these clips for some reason. Looks pretty good. I'll Netflix it.

I'm so glad to see Ellen Page in another role. She's a great actress, and I hope she keeps getting work.

The first clip reminds me of that other SJP movie "The Family Stone".
