"Alpha Dog" showed at Sundance on its closing night
A gritty drug-dealing drama based on a real story about suburban boys, "Alpha Dog", delightfully has been chosen to close the Sundance Film Festival on Friday night before this main U.S gathering for independent films presents some awards for the best features. Star of the film, pop idol Justin Timberlake, responded warmly to this selection, saying that it is the perfect movie to end the festival because it "tackles real issues in a real way." "You don't have to worry about things you have to worry about with big-budget studio film and that's why it's appropriate," he commented.
