LA TIMES REVIEW - tweet - tweet - tweet

Posted by Sara Nodjoumi & Till Schauder (Creator)

Hello everyone!

With pitch perfect timing for our LA release the LA Times just published their review which is ... awesome!!!!

Phhhh... these are the kinds of moments where filmmakers really sweat...more even than basketball players... A review from a national paper like that can kill you... or put you in play. This one certainly helps.

Please tell EVERYONE you know about the LA release - regardless of whether they live there or not. Someone may know someone who lives near LA, and that person might find his or her way to the theater. As Kevin says "It's not easy - BUT... we can."

Here's the link for showtimes & venues & tickets:

And here's the LA Times review if you'd like to share it.,0,7898768.story

This week we also heard some - very quiet - Oscar chatter -- The Iran Job was included in an article about possible Oscar contenders. Nobody's quitting their day job here, but it's certainly nice to be in that conversation...

Lastly, for those of you in LA - we'll have drinks after the Friday 7:30 show at the Music Hall in Beverly Hills (so probably around 9:15ish). We'll be meeting at Kate Mantilini which is catty corner from the theater.

And we'll have drinks again at that same location after the Saturday 5:00 show.

Thanks as always for your support -- hope to see some of you this weekend!

Much love,

Sara & Till
