my mom is in a full-length independent film called “the secret”. chad and i attended the screening in l.a. last year, about which i wrote the following:
wow. what can i say except my mom is already a star. “the secret” is a wonderful film and i won’t give anything away because you’re going to get to see it yourselves. i have seen my mom perform onstage in just about every role a person can play, and this is by far her strongest performance yet. i am so excited for the world to see her in this movie. chad and i just beamed with pride the whole time. she was in turns funny and cold, endearing and caustic, and the whole experience was just incredible. the entire cast is strong, the writing is good, the story is captivating … wow. i’m just bursting.this afternoon, i got email from my mom about a totally free screening of “the secret” in chicago at the landmark century cinema in the century center on clark and diversey on saturday, may 5th at 10:30 a.m. they have been taking the film to various festivals and they’re trying to get a chicago buzz going, so if you are in the chicagoland area or know someone who is, please pass this along. thank you so much!
