"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Showbiz History: Norma,Viola,and Two Sexy Guys Named "Chris"

10 random things that happened on this day in history (Aug 11th)

1902Norma Shearer is born in Montreal.Or was she?IMDb lists her date as August 10th but most sources say August 11th.There were previous disputes about the year,too -- 1900,1902,1904?But most sources seem to have settled on 1902.Regardless she was a huge star in the 1920s and 1930s.We love her here at TFE even if nobody else does.

1937The Life of Emile Zolapremieres.It goes on to win Best Picture and oh my god y'all...  J'accuse that one of being a giant slog!Seriously it's unending.They had so many better choices that year including one of the all time best screwballsThe Awful Truth(Sigh)...

Blueprints: "Ingrid Goes West"

In the latest installment of our screenplay column,Jorgetakes a look at the tricky task of making a phone screen visually engaging.

As technology becomes more efficient and finds new ways to make our lives easier,it's making the job of screenwriting more difficult.It's now nearly impossible tonotbe able to reach a person insomeway (once a common source of screen conflict) and,worse for the visual montony,most of our day-to-day activities include staring at some kind of screen.

Ingrid Goes Westdidn't just incorporate how we relate to technology today,but made it its central theme.Let's look at the underrated gem to see how the use of technology is captured in its pages,and how the writers made it as emotionally thrilling as any action movie car chase...

Review: "Ingrid Goes West"

By Spencer Coile

Following the death of her mother,Ingrid Thorburn (Aubrey Plaza) is in a rut.With no one to turn to,she scrolls through Instagram in hopes of finding her ideal friend.She soon finds Taylor Sloane (Elizabeth Olsen),a California-based social media influencer -- and Ingrid's latest muse.Captivated by Taylor's seemingly glamorous life,Ingrid packs up her life in Pennsylvania and heads to the sunny West Coast,in hopes of befriending Taylor and catching a glimmer of social media stardom.

Written and directed by Matt Spicer,Ingrid Goes Westis the latest in a long line of films that demonstrate the pervasiveness of technology and the influence social media has on our lives.If you find yoursevles rolling your eyes at that comment,fear not.Ingridis far more interested in exploring our relationship with the likes of Instagram,Twitter,Snapchat,etc.,rather than merely demonizing its usage.Oh,and it is hilarious.

Details about the Sundance winners

For those of you who were way to caught up in the Oscar nomination race to have been paying attention to Sundance (*raises hand in solidarity*) we thought rather than just share the winners list from Sundance we'd include a couple of details about the films in question.Some of these films will vanish as some festival films always do and others might be on top ten lists and in the awards race next year,you never know.Sundance has a number of different juries so they're broken up into types of films that those juries oversee.

Grand Jury Prize:I don't feel at home in this world anymore.
This thriller about a depressed nurse (Melanie Lynskey) and her neighbor (Elijah Wood) tracking down burglars who broke into her house comes from actor turned debuting writer/director Macon Blair.It's skipping theaters and premiering on Netflix on February 24th...
