FROM THIS EPISODE

Kim and the Wall Street Journal's Ben Fritz discuss some of the films that were bought for distribution at this year's Sundance Film Festival. The Zach Braff movie, Wish I Was Here, which was largely funded by a controversial Kickstarter campaign was bought by Focus Features for $2.7 million and was guaranteed a 500-screen release. On the other end of the spectrum, filmmaker Richard Linklater premiered his film, Boyhood, which was made over 12 years and is nearly three hours long. That film isn't likely to have a large audience outside of cineastes, but it was well received by critics and is an example of the festival's commitment to artistic fare over commercial films.
