As the celebrities descended like a blizzard on Park City, Utah, for the Sundance FiIm Festival this past weekend, the sleepy mountain town once again became a mecca for ridiculous gifting lounges, lavish VIP-only fetes, and well-furred tourists complaining about watered-down beer. Oh, and an arcade of movie theaters overstuffed with antsy, hungover revelers eager to cut the crap and get back to the slew of hip happenings. As the second half of the festival begins, we’ve got a lot of catching up to do.
On opening night, the In Bruges after-party drew Colin Farrell and Mary-Kate Olsen to the Hpnotic lounge at The Lift. Olsen came to hang with Farrell, but spent much of the time upstairs with her pals, while the Irish heartthrob cavorted downstairs with some seedy-looking imports. After the party, Olson headed outside to smoke a cigarette with some friends, one of whom asked to take a snap with the pint-size actress. She agreed, provided the pic didn’t “end up on pagesix.com.”
