The Sundance Film Festival is known for helping to launch some of the biggest independent films by procuring buyers. With the most recent festival, it appears as though the romantic tale “Like Crazy” could be up for several recognition awards in the future, as it was named best drama.
According to Reuters, the movie tells the story of a British man and an American woman who fall in love but move away from each other, which causes issues in their relationship.
While this could be viewed for entertainment purposes, those who are looking for a dark documentary may want to consider “How to Die in Oregon,” which was chosen as the best documentary of the festival.
The documentary follows assisted suicides, which were recently legalized in the state and particularly examined the case of one terminally old woman who overdoses and actually dies on camera.
According to New York Magazine, the film was so depressing that the majority of the audience was either crying uncontrollably or were too stunned to clap.
