This looks like such a cool film festival, really hope to check it out this year! I just had the chance to watch a really cool indie movie called "Empathy, Inc" that I would love to share with you guys. It's a sci-fi thriller about a virtual reality technology that lets its user switch bodies with another person which causes complete chaos and corruption. It was such an interesting watch and I really encourage you guys to add it to your lists! The film is now available on VOD, I'd love to hear your thoughts 😊
hey guys! there's this new film that I wanted to recommend called Stockholm that you guys should check out. It's a dark comedy combined with a bank robbing action/heist that tells the origin story of the psych term "Stockholm syndrome." Noomi Rapace brought an incredible performance. It's playing tonight at AMC Norwalk 20!
Look what you created ! So ahead of our time ---beautiful ! Gonna be a GREAT one this year. xo C.
Hope all is well with you, Leslie. It has been ages since we lunched. Perhaps soon-is? xxooo
