Like Crazy takes home the top prize

Like Crazy takes away the top prize at the recent Sundance.

Sundance officially closes, but tonight the awards were handed out in grand fashion. The ceremony was taken over by Tim Blake Nelson, who arrived dressed up as a snowflake. There were loads of strong contenders this year, but only few stood out.

Doremus was the man of the hour with his powerful love story called Like Crazy. It also gave the actress Felicity Jones an award. The other film that was really talked about at the festival was Mary Marcy May Marlene. It ended up getting only an director prize for Sean Durkin.

The other grim tale that took the documentary prize was How to Die Oregon. It was a tale about medically assisted suicide.
