Sundance film review: ‘Friends with Money’

In a festival replete with films exploring life versus death, money versus death, various forms of death and, of course, young boys exploring their sexual maturity with older women, a witty film about the superficial hysterics that accompany a wealthy lifestyle is a breath of fresh air. Nicole Holofcener’s “Friends With Money” explores the relationship […]

How to Sundance

The ultimate destination for devoted movie fans outside of Hollywood is the snow-covered village of Park City, Utah.

The Bar Belle: T.S. Muttly’s

T.S. Muttly’s 2427 18th St. N.W. Last Friday night brought me back to Adams Morgan for the first time this semester.
