More News On “Then She Found Me”

Mister D: I spoke to Ms. Lipmann today, author of “Then She Found Me,” Bette’s upcoming movie with Hunt. She told me of another festival that the film will be shown…The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival which runs from January 16th -27th, 2008.

“Then She Found Me” will open the festival January 16th at 7:30 with a Q & A with the author afterwards. It also shows on January 18th at 12:00PM. The first show is sold out.

Anyway, those of you in Atlanta may want to look into going at the second showing. Also keep your eye out for any more extra showings.

There is a small blip of a scene with Bette talking to Helen in a montage of films on the home page of the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival Organization…so check it out here: Click Here

PS: Look for the movie to hit more festivals leading up to the major release in late April/Early May. Trailer and Poster should be coming soon.

Love, Mister D

PS: If you haven’t read Ms. Lipman’s book, now is the time to do it:

  1. I can’t wait to see this! I’m so excited!

    I don’t know if this has ever been brought up before, but has anyone ever noticed the similarities in the book “Then She Found Me” and the song “Lullaby In Blue”? For instance the lines “At seventeen I looked into your eyes/knew I could never comfort your cries” (Bernice was seventeen when she had April) And “Every April still reminds me of you/me lullaby in blue”
    Just thought that was interesting. . . they should have used that song for the movie!

  2. Suzanne:

    Hey Suzanne: You know I never really thought about that. I think that’s great you picked that up. I have no idea what they are using as music for the film, but that would be great if someone else noticed what you did…

    Love, Mister D

  3. Hi Mr D & All!

    I have never read the book, but going upon what the story is about I can see the similarities with Lullaby In Blue.

    Now, as for Bette Midler & Helen Hunt teaming up together, I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall to watch how the two interacted. I must also admit, I am so glad that there seem to be more female film director’s these days. I hope Bette makes her Directorial debut one day in the future.

    I really can’t wait for this movie to come out, it would be great to hear Bette on the Soundtrack with a new song or two.

    BTW – Mr D, I sent you an email did you get it?

    Big Hugz!

  4. Hi Suzzane! YES, while I was reading the book I thought about the song and yes, isn’t it funny about the two girls (book and song) were born in April and all? I’m glad someone else thought about it, I was starting to believe I was one fo those crazed fans, where everything leads to your idol.LOL! What a coincidence…it would be cool if they had used the song…but I’m glad this movie sounds like a great oportunity for Bette to play a real character and let the usual persona people are used to, which sometimes is be the funny and outspoken sing and dance kind of character…not that I dislke that (LOL)…I just think she is a great actress too…
