Helen Hunt’s Then She Found Me’ to kick off Cleveland International Film Festival
Tuesday, January 29, 2008
“Then She Found Me” will kick off the 32nd Cleveland International Film Festival on Thursday, March 6.
The romantic comedy is the directing debut of actress Helen Hunt, who stars as a woman confused by the foibles of adoption, birth parents and finding love. “Then She Found Me,” based on the Elinor Lipman novel, is a rare departure for the festival because the film features a string of well-known names: Colin Firth, Matthew Broderick and Bette Midler.
Hunt will not be in Cleveland, but Lipman will introduce the film during opening night at Tower City Cinemas. The festival runs from March 6 through Sunday, March 16. Go to www.clevelandfilm.org.
