Most talked-about titles arrive at Sundance with little buzz


The 24th annual Sundance Film Festival won't be remembered for big sales, but it may be remembered as the year that buyers wised up.

At the festival's halfway mark, the most talked-about titles are ones that came into Park City with neither cast nor buzz. Audiences are raving about "Ballast," a drama set in the Mississippi Delta written and directed by Lance Hammer; "The Wave," a German-language thriller in which a high school teacher's sociology experiment goes awry; and the Spanish-language Andes survival doc "Stranded."

Meanwhile, Sundance's movie-star titles are starting to look a lot like studio refugees seeking indie cover.
