Elizabeth Olsen, this year's Sundance darling (or one of them anyway) is returning to Park City to prove she wasn't just a one hit wonder, with another indie aiming to turn heads.

She toplines "How I Met Your Mother" actor Josh Radnor's sophomore feature "Liberal Arts." This time around, the director of "Happythankyoumoreplease" will tell the story of a 35-year-old man (Radnor) who can’t leave his college life behind as he comes to grips with the responsibilities of adulthood. Olsen will play Zibby, a 19 year-old college student who falls for Jesse over their mutual love of music and literature, but their difference in age starts to get in the way as Jesse moves farther away from a hedonistic lifestyle. Richard Jenkins, Allison Janney, John Magaro and Elizabeth Reaser round out the cast.

Also headed to Utah is "Goats." An adaptation of Mark Jude Poirier's 2000 novel of the same name, the film is directed by former acting coach Christopher Neil and centers on the teenage Ellis (Graham Phillips), as he transfers to the East Coast prep school where he reconnects with his father (played by Ty Burrell) who made his mark as a student before him. A pretty solid cast fills this one out with Vera Farmiga, Keri Russell, Minnie Driver and Will Arnett on board.

Check out images from both films below.
