Subject: Bed of Roses..First news

Today I received a video clip of the film and the production notes.  
Here's some things of interest.  First of all, her character's name is 
Lisa Walker and not Amelia.  Although Amelia is a minor character in the 
film.

The film was written and directed by first-timer Michael Goldenberg. He 
based the script losely on Breakfast at Tiffany's and his own chance 
encounter with a lovely, but sad woman.

Masterson says of the script: "I felt like it really had similar themes 
and values to the kinds of movies I've always loved and cherished.  It's 
very much like a 30's era romantic-comedy, but it's combined with the 
contemporary issues and psychological underpinnings of a modern story.  
The way that Lisa and Lewis are choreographed was simply magical, and you 
don't really find those kinds of stories these days.  There's very little 
elegance and grace in most comtemporary love stories."

In the notes it says that Mary Stu will soon take on directing with 
"Grapefruit Moon", a script she wrote which is being produced by Francis 
Ford Coppola.

There's more but my AOL mailer doesn't like me sending long e-mails.
