Actor Josh Radnor is mostly known as hopeless romantic Ted Mosby on the hit show, "How I Met Your Mother," though he garnered much more deserved attention for his first feature, "HappyThankYou-MorePlease" (not a typo, I promise), which won the Audience Award for Drama at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. The central theme in "HTYMP" is the hardships of falling in love as an adult. Life would certainly be so much more pleasant if finding "the one" was as easy as movies make it seem to be, no?

A 35-year-old man falls for a 19-year-old woman ... oh, the cutesy conflicts of twee indie melodramas.
In case you didn't know that life isn't quite all you think it's going to be once you leave the alternate reality that is college, Josh Radnor has made a movie about it. And he even got Elizabeth Olsen to play the teenage vixen who represents the life he kinda wishes he could go back to. Get More »
"Like Crazy," "Take Shelter," "Martha Marcy May Marlene," "Pariah." What do these films all have in common? They all premiered at last year's Sundance Film Festival. To say that the bar was raised for this year's edition to deliver the indie goods is an understatement.
We're glad to report that 2012 is shaping up to be another great year for the world's most important independent film festival. Just take a look at some of the talent included on the lineup: Kirsten Dunst, Andy Samberg, Elizabeth Olsen, Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana, Kate Bosworth and director Spike Lee. Now that's enough reason to get excited.
We've worked our way through the massive lineup to bring you our picks for the top 15 films we're most excited for. Get More »
TV funny guy Josh Radnor (CBS's "Hot I Met Your Mother") wrote, directed and stars in this indie romantic dramedy that charmed the pants off of moviegoers at last year's Sundance Film Festival, nabbing the festival's Audience Award.
It's not hard to see why.
Set in New York, "happythankyoumoreplease" boats a quirky title that rings off the tip of the tongue; a hip, talented cast (fronted by Malin Akerman, Kate Mara, Zoe Kazan, Pablo Schreiber and Radnor himself); an indie-centric soundtrack; sex (natch); and a storyline revolving around hot twentysomethings trying to find love in all the wrong places.

Once you've established yourself as a star of one of the most successful TV series in recent history ever, it's time to kick back, relax and bask in the glow of having officially "made it" in Hollywood -- right?
Radnor's directorial debut, "Happythankyoumoreplease" (on DVD and Blu-ray today), is an indie dramedy that follows a group of Manhattanites dangerously close to turning 30. There's Sam, the struggling writer (Radnor) who "adopts" a runaway boy he finds on the subway, his BFF Annie (Malin Akerman), an Alopecia-stricken young woman who chooses the wrong men, and Mississippi (Kate Mara), a cabaret singer/bartender just trying to make it while keeping her heart in one piece.

Growing up is hard to do… unless you're a rising star of the independent film scene that is.
For Josh Radnor (of "How I Met Your Mother" fame) and Elizabeth Olsen (the younger sister of billionaire twins Mary-Kate and Ashley), moving to the next level of fame seems to be coming along with ease.
Fresh off their respective hits at Sundance—Radnor for "Happythankyoumoreplease" and Olsen for "Martha Marcy May Marlene"—the duo is teaming up for the coming-of-age flick "Liberal Arts."
Written by Radnor, the dramedy focuses on a 35-year-old man (who will also be played by Radnor), still yearning for the life of a college student, who must come to terms with the responsibilities of adulthood. Get More »
Love is strange. You know that tune.
Writer-director-star Josh Radnor (of "How I Met Your Mother") brings the indie quirkiness with "Happythankyoumoreplease," and the trailer, which recently premiered on Apple Trailers, promises that we'll be getting a movie that's about as cute and precious and weird as a Sundance darling can get.
Watch as a bunch of young attractive New Yorkers engage in various romantic pratfalls, including the always-hot Kate Mara and a practically unrecognizable Malin Akerman, certainly a long way from the sad, doomed Manhattan of "Watchmen." Get More »
