A Special Message To BetteHeads From Ms. Elinor Lipman
(Author Of “Then She Found Me”)

Mister D: Ms. Lipman wrote me today, out of the blue, in order to give you all a special message and a capsule review mainly concerning Ms. Midler. She saw a special screening of “Then She Found Me” yesterday and she states, “This movie is going to make you BetteHeads wild with joy.” Notice she knows our lingo…LOL She also gave me the release date which came from Helen Hunt’s beautiful mouth this morning: It will be released in New York and Los Angeles April 25, 2008. I have a feeling it will slowly open big to build word of mouth which would be an excellent strategy for this type of movie. Here’s her review for you:

I saw THEN SHE FOUND ME at a screening today, and am here to rave! I loved every scene, every frame, every line. The whole thing was so wry, so smart, so poignant, so beautifully paced and SO SATISFYING. When your Bette’s on screen, you can’t take your eyes off her. It’s an amazing performance, so funny and nuanced and big but never over the top. Even I who invented Bernice on the page felt that I was finally meeting and seeing her. Truly, it’s a fabulous movie. And Helen Hunt? I could go on for many paragraphs, but I think “genius,” sums it up most economically. – Elinor Lipman, author, “Then She Found Me”
