Festivities in Park City, Utah are cooling down now that most Sundance films have hit the big screens and festival goers are leaving town. Was there a "Boyhood" among the movie premieres?

With every passing year the independent film festival, created by Robert Redford, has gained attention and credibility for movies that will go on to critical and commercial success. On the feature side of things, titles getting attention include "Sleeping With Other People" - a romantic comedy about sex addicts starring Alison BRie and Jason Sudeikis.

On the documentary side, acclaimed filmmaker Alex Gibney's new project is based on the book "Going Clear" - an investigation of the Church of Scientology by Lawrence Wright. What films are you keen on? How many deals were made at Sundance this year?
