Andrew Wagner was at Sundance two years ago with his break-out film The Talent Given to Us. In his emotional introduction to Starting Out, he explained how he sat in the huge Eccles theater wishing to someday have a film of his own on the gigantic big screen. He couldn’t get anymore words out, he just tried to hold the tears back, for like two minutes. It was the most emotional Sundance moment I’ve seen in a while.
