Taking to the wintry region to promote her new film, Zooey Deschanel was front and center at the "My Idiot Brother" premiere during the 2011 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah on Saturday (January 22).

Held at the Eccles Center Theatre, Miss Deschanel donned a colorful purple dress while joined at the debut screening by castmates Emily Mortimer, Paul Rudd, Rashida Jones and Elizabeth Banks.

Due out this year, "My Idiot Brother is directed by Jesse Peretz while being described as "a comedy centered on an idealist who barges into the lives of his three sisters."

Previously talking to MTV about his character as the idealistic organic farmer, Mr Rudd said, "I immediately go to jail for selling marijuana to a uniformed police officer. However, the character is not dumb. The character just kind of appeals to everybody's higher angels and thinks that if he throws goodness out there, it will in turn come back."
