As my friend said to me, "Man. There are so few just straight up wins like that in this gig... just think about how many movies he's seen!!" That pretty much says it. One of the most completely special things to happen to me in my time making movies. Very thankful.
Woke up this mornig to a barrage of texts and emails with the news. I could not be more proud/happier that Sarah is being recognized in such a big way for her incredibly brave and sensitve work in I Smile Back. Bravo! Full list of nominees here.
It was my first time in Germany. It was my first time at the film festival in Oldenburg, and when they opened the envelope, Sarah won the award! Pretty damn cool moment. Click here to read the Hollywood Reporter article.
It's very cool and humbling to be a part of the awards conversation. I just hope lots of people get to see the film because I am so proud of it and especially proud of what Sarah did. She's going to shatter peoples' expectations of what she can do. Click hereto read the full article on Deadline.
