During the first half of the 2017 Sundance Film Festival (which runs from Jan. 19 to Jan. 29), there was a star-studded women’s march on Park City’s Main Street on Saturday led by Chelsea Handler…and a lot of snow. Last year’s festival gave us The Birth of a Nation, Sing Street, and Manchester by the Sea, but this year has yet to deliver even one comparable definitive breakout (at least not at press time). Still, if you looked hard enough and were willing to brave the elements, there were a handful of titles that movie lovers will be talking about this year. Here are EW’s picks for the five best from the first half of the fest.
