  2. I just spoke to Ms. Lipman, she said she heard the movie might hit the UK in midsummer, otherwise I have no idea.

    WENDY!!!!! I can’t believe the swear words that come out of your mouth.

    The film will also be playing at the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival on Jan. 16 and 18th. I believe it will be the first night there. Ms, Lipman, the author will be on hand afterwards for a Q and A….

    Thanks, Don
