As we move closer to the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, we’re getting the first images of the films that will be playing there.  Since there are so many movies, we’ve decided to group them into a single article because the human brain can only handle so many new images before it starts to go mad.  The films we’ve included in this group Obselidia; Skateland starring the unbelievable hotness that is Ashley Greene; The Dry Land starring America Ferrera, Melissa Leo, and Wilmer Valderrama; The Imperialists Are Still Alive!; and Winter’s Bone starring Jennifer Lawrence and John Hawkes. We also have some more images for Nowhere Boy, the young John Lennon biopic starring Kristen Scott Thomas and Aaron Johnson.  Hit the jump for images and synopses for all these films.

The 2010 Sundance Film Festival will run from January 21-31st.

With the exception of Nowhere Boy, all synopses are via the Sundance Film Festival.  If no film is included after the director’s name, it means that this is their feature film debut.

NOWHERE BOY, directed by Sam Taylor Wood (Love You More)

Synopsis: From award winning artist turned director Sam Taylor-Wood and award-winning writer Matt Greenhalgh (Control) comes NOWHERE BOY, a touching and compelling story chronicling music legend John Lennon’s formative years.  John is a spirited teenager, curious, sharp and funny, growing up in the shattered city of Liverpool.  His home life is a difficult one, lacking the stability that most children take for granted.  Without a father and with his mother Julia absent for most of his childhood, John grows up with Aunt Mimi (Academy Award® Nominee Kristin Scott Thomas).  After seeking to be reunited with his mother, he finds himself at the center of a struggle between Julia and Mimi, who compete for his love.  As he yearns for a more conventional home life, John escapes into the world of American Rock and Roll.  His fledgling genius finds a kindred spirit in the young Paul McCartney.  But just as John’s new life begins, the truth about his past leads to a tragedy he would never escape.
