Silver Screenwriter

I now know the depths of my love for a certain novelist.

This morning on the way to work, NPR did an advance promo for today’s Fresh Air. Special guest Helen Hunt, four-time Emmy winner, Oscar winner and recently turned director, will be discussing her new film. It stars Bette Midler, Matthew Broderick and Colin Firth in addition to Ms. Hunt.

The film? Then She Found Me. I took that moment to harangue Terry Gross via my radio that this movie is based on Elinor Lipman‘s first novel and that I wasn’t going to go see it because Ms. Hunt directed it. I’m going to see it because it’s Elinor Lipman!  One of the funniest writers I’ve ever read! I suppose I’ll go for Colin Firth, too.

But, please, Helen, props to Elinor for providing you with such great material! And if you think Then She Found Me is good, you haven’t read The Way Men Act. Favorite scene? The description of the floral delivery. Chapter 29. Do. Not. Miss.

Don’t discuss without me!
