Anne Hathaway reportedly captivated audiences at Sundance Monday.

The Oscar-winning actress walked the red carpet at the world premiere of her new film, Song One, at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah on Monday night.

Anne starred in and executive produced the film, which Variety reports drew "thunderous applause following its screening".

The budget was reportedly much smaller for the folk music-themed movie compared to Anne's Academy Award-winning Les Misérables.

But the star said her joy working on the project came from collaborating with artists she admires.

"I like beautiful movies and I think they come in all sizes," she told the outlet, noting of the movie's songwriters Jenny Lewis and Johnathan Rice: "I really like working with people who inspire me."
