LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Films featuring Chris Rock, Pierce Brosnan, Susan Sarandon, Paul Giamatti and Emily Watson are among those competing for top honors at January's Sundance Film Festival.
Rock appears in the documentary "Good Hair," director Jeff Stilson's examination of African-American hairstyles, which was among 64 films announced Wednesday in Sundance's four competitions for U.S. and world cinema.
Brosnan and Sarandon star in director Shana Feste's "The Greatest," about a couple coping with the loss of their teenage son, while Giamatti and Watson are among the cast of Sophie Barthes' "Cold Souls," centering on an actor in an existential crisis.
The festival that showcases independent film runs Jan. 15-25 in Park City, Utah.
