About this Article

The Sundance Film Festival isn't home to many shoot-em-up movies, but action-oriented actors at the festival are facing questions about Hollywood's role in American gun violence. Guy Pearce, Ellen Page and Alexander Skarsgard are among those who say Hollywood shares in the blame. "There are films that use guns flippantly, then there are films that use guns in a way that would make you never want to look at a gun ever again -- because of the effect that it's had on the other people in the story at the time," Pearce says.
