Once a prominent fixture on movie screens, Michelle Pfeiffer sightings have become increasingly rare in recent years. Now, after a four-year break, 2017 is shaping up to be a four-film Pfeiffersance, one that kicks off with her Sundance debut, Where is Kyra?, a psychological drama directed by festival veteran Andrew Dosunmu, whose previous features, 2011’s Restless City and 2013’s Mother of George, both premiered in Park City.

It’s been 23 years since Kevin Smith went to the Sundance Film Festival with a low-budget black-and-white comedy about two convenience store employees goofing off at work.

There’s nothing more precious than life — except, that is, if you live in the world of The Discovery, the new thriller from director Charlie McDowell (The One I Love).

The saga of Shin Sang-ok and Choi Eun-hee, also recently detailed in a book by Paul Fischer, is brought to life in The Lovers and the Despot from directors Ross Adam and Robert Cannan, with the help of photos, interviews, re-enactments, and secretly taped conversations featuring Kim Jong-il.
