Thinking About Admission

admission

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of screening ADMISSION , a Paul Weitz film starring Tina Fey and Paul Rudd.  I also had the chance to meet and attend a press conference with all three the next day.  Three publics figures whose work I adore, it was quite the treat. Tina Fey was just as cute, tiny and down-to-earth as I expected (seriously, could you just gag?).  I particularly liked her response when asked if getting into NYC schools is harder than getting into Princeton. About the interview process, she said: What if you have to take them that … [Read more...]

I saw the new film ADMISSION with Tina Fey and Paul Rudd a few weeks ago.  While I can't express my thoughts quite yet on the film, I did recently write my interview with Tina Fey over at Women & Hollywood/Indiewire.  Please check it out.

They don't seem to even know what or who is nominated! They seem to think it's all about "Avatar".  Wrong year. Hilarious! I have never been so excited about an awards … [Read more...]

Strokes of Brilliance in Tina Fey’s “Bossypants”

bossypants

I enjoyed every word of Tina Fey's new tell-all called "Bossypants."  I actually call it a tell-all in gest.  She doesn't really rat on anyone in show business.  She's kind of gracious and scathing at the same time.  As someone yet to make my own mark in the world, I was really impressed with her story.  How she joined the cast of SNL at a very young age, after having been out in the world on her own for a very short time.  How she has always followed her heart, having had a love for theater and acting in high school and never left it behind. The book … [Read more...]
