'Looking' co-creator Michael Lannan says Scott Bakula is returning for season 2
Relative newcomer Michael Lannan and acclaimed director Andrew Haigh ("Weekend") have created a remarkable new series with "Looking" that just wrapped up its first season Sunday night. Already picked up by HBO for another season, the show centers on Patrick (Jonathan Groff), a somewhat naive video game developer in San Francisco on the cusp of turning 30 and finally coming into his own. He's surrounded by two friends who have some issues of their own; Dom (Murray Bartlett) and Agustin (Frankie J. Alvarez). The series premiered to strong critical reviews in January, but received some surprising criticism from gay journalists for it's focus on one specific part of the community. Groff says in a separate interview with HitFix that they were all prepared for this because of the hype surrounding the show that it was going to be the gay "Sex and the City" or the gay "Girls." And this was before it even began filming.

Sundance Review: White Bird in a Blizzard

By Terence Johnson

Managing Editor

There are so many ways that one could start a review of White Bird in a Blizzard that it was tough to figure out where to begin but here’s a shot: this film is an interesting look at depression, teenage angst, and life in the suburbs for about 86 minutes of it’s 91 minute running time that completely comes undone in the final 5 minutes of the film.

Kat (Shailene Woodley) is a girl who is coming into her own. She’s a few months away from college, enjoying a romance with the boy next door (Shiloh Fernandez), and is really beginning to understand her sexuality. But all is not well in paradise, her father is distant and her mother (Eva Green) is a mess, drinking heavily and struggling to hold on. One day her mother vanishes, and Kat and her father try to resume their lives.
