Sundance darlings Elizabeth Olsen and Josh Radnor are teaming up to take over the festival. “How I Met Your Mother‘s” Radnor struck quirky gold with his 2010 directorial entry Happythankyoumoreplease, and Olsen turned heads with her performance in Martha Marcy May Marlene.

Radnor will next direct Olsen and himself in Liberal Arts from his own script. Whoooaaaa-ho!! Slow down there. We’ve already got a James Franco. Radnor will play a 35-year old who can’t sever his ties to his college life and accept the responsibilities of adulthood. Olsen will play a teen-aged college student who he falls in love with over their mutual love of music. That’s quite an age difference. So, it’s like Garden State: The Super Creepy Version. Or rather, like a camera followed around Zach Braff during Sprin Break. (THR)

Pseudo-hipsters rejoice! Happythankyoumoreplease has enough quirk to tide you and your friends over until Pitchfork Music Festival in July. It would appear that Happythankyoumoreplease (I’m going to get really tired of writing that) is the stillborn lovechild of 500 Days of Summer, Juno, and Away We Go. The backdrop of Manhattan can only carry a film so far before the producers must turn to nuance such as plot and acting. There is a conspicuous lack of Zooey Deschanel in this film, but that is mitigated by the fact that there’s a Zoe Kazan in the cast, so don’t worry. First-time writer/director Josh Radnor has you covered, Zoe-wise.

The plot of Happythankyoumoreplease is hardly groundbreaking: Manhattan 20 and 30-somethings just trying to make it in this crazy world, any way they can. Beyond that, a slacker adopts an orphaned child (Big Daddy what?), Buster Bluth loves a woman with cancer, and a guy that looks like Steve Nash is in a relationship. There’s your film.

I don’t think I’m overextending myself by anticipating an edgy soundtrack full of up-and-coming indie bands and a gimmicky guerilla marketing campaign as we get closer to the March 4th release date. Until then, crack open a cold PBR, don an¬†unnecessary¬†scarf, and check out this trailer. (Playlist)
