Sundance announces curtain-raiser
By Sean P. Means
The Salt Lake Tribune

"Friends With Money," a title that could describe more than a few people in Park City, will be the opening-night film at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 19.
"It's rare that a group of us programmers will walk into a movie, and walk out unified in our response," said festival director Geoffrey Gilmore.
The movie is one of 17 Premiere films that will screen Jan. 19-29 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and the Sundance resort. Festival organizers announced the Premiere films late Wednesday, capping three days of unveiling 120 titles.
The drama - written and directed by Sundance alum Nicole Holofcener ("Walking and Talking," "Lovely and Amazing") - centers on three married women, their husbands and their one single friend. The cast includes Jennifer Aniston, Scott Caan, Joan Cusack, Jason Isaacs, Catherine Keener and Frances McDormand.
Gilmore, who is an admirer of Holofcener's films, said her new film shows "a level of accomplishment that is so impressive. It's so exciting to see her working at this level. This is filmmaking that, to me, captures independent storytelling at its best."
