Our first screening was a success! We had to turn about 100 people away; unfortunately, the theater was smaller than we thought. But, people seemed to like the film. What we’re learning: everyone is a critic; everyone has opinions about what kind of film they would like to see. And not surprisingly, this was a little jarring at first, even for Gerry. But, we’re really looking forward to our other two upcoming screenings, each with a Q&A so we can actually hear directly from our audience.
In other news, the films here are just amazing! We saw Todd Haynes new film about the many personas of Bob Dylan. Personally, I thought it was a work of genius. We also saw Jason Reitman’s new film “Juno” and “Margot at the Wedding” by Noah Baumbach, also terrific films.
Well, off for a quick margarita before our next screening of FTLOM. -A
