Los Angeles Film Festival

Last night was the opening night of the festival. The fantastic movie TALK TO ME premiered (semi-full disclosure, some friends of mine worked on the movie). The event was in Westwood with the after-party on a sectioned off street.

I went with my co-workers. We had a drink and some appetizers before the movie, which was a great way to kick off the evening (haha). I saw some of my favorite people and met the very talented Chiwetel Ejiofor. Sognatrice's man, Andy Garcia was there, he introduced the movie.

Speaking of movies, I'm looking forward to seeing BROKEN ENGLISH, a small indie movie written and directed by Zoe Cassavetes. Parker Posey plays a late 30s something single woman who meets a Frenchman. I read Ms. Cassavetes is engaged to a Frenchman. One of my friends saw this movie at Sundance and said it was great.

I hope everyone has a good weekend.

Tracey K. in Ohio here: YUM-O @ andy garcia! Not to horn in on anyone else's man (LOL!) I saw a beautiful ad in the back of a magazine advertising Cadillac Escalade with Mr. Garcia doing the driving. He was leaning out the window looking in the sideview mirror. I started to rip it out, but didn't think the library would've appreciated that!

I've heard good reviews re: Talk to Me. Nice way to preview it @ a Westwood street party. Oh - your life is SO DANG BORING.....(LOL!) Have good, safe weekends everyone!!!
