I got to experience this year’s Sundance Film Festival in a way few others did: as a member of the U.S. Dramatic Competition jury. It was a great experience, challenging at times but definitely worthwhile.

Sometimes, a successful play or a popular book—even a comic book—has qualities that just don’t transfer to the screen. One Day is based on a best-selling novel, and the producers hired its author, David Nicholls, to write the screenplay, since he’s had plenty of experience making films and television series. I still think something has been lost in the translation.

It isn’t easy being a sleeper nowadays. There’s been so much buildup for An Education, which has traveled the film festival circuit since Sundance in January, that it’s difficult for ordinary moviegoers to feel as if they’re discovering it for themselves. I hope inflated expectations don’t harm the film’s reception: it really is quite good and deserving of all the buzz it has generated this year.
