Question of the Day
Associated Press journalists open their notebooks at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah:
A MOVIE MUGGLE WITHOUT HIS WAND?
You’d think that when Daniel Radcliffe signs on to your independent film, the money would start flowing.
Radcliffe came aboard two years ago, after the project had come together and fallen apart repeatedly over the years, Krokidas said at the Sundance Film Festival, where “Kill Your Darlings” premiered. The project had been looking dead for good before that, but even with the former “Harry Potter” star, Krokidas said financing was not a sure thing.
Krokidas eventually secured financing for “Kill Your Darlings,” which chronicles a dark and deadly period in the youths of Ginsberg and fellow future beat writers Jack Kerouac and William S. Burroughs.

So it’s a completely different experience than mine and we all have our own. But I hope she felt better for it. Because it felt kind of cathartic.”
Lynch said she didn’t want to join the call from some gay activists who felt Foster should have been more direct in her emotional speech. “Just because you’re an actor doesn’t mean you have to be an activist,” Lynch said. “You don’t have to. Do whatever you want. Go Jodie!”
