Congratulations

Congratulations to my friends Eddie and Gina who learned yesterday that their movie has been accepted at the Sundance Film Festival.

The movie is called Once More with Feeling and is a comedy about a psychiatrist who undergoes a midlife crisis and pursues his long-lost ambition of becoming a singer through karaoke. It stars Drea DeMatteo (The Sopranos), Chazz Palminteri (A Bronx Tale, The Usual Suspects), and Linda Fiorentino (The Last Seduction, Men in Black).

That's Eddie and Drea on location in Connecticut in the pics above.

Gina based the story on a wedding that they attended in which the father of the bride sang a song for his daughter - which was very touching - and then proceeded to continue singing song after song much to the chagrin of all of those in attendance.

The film makes its world premiere in Park City, Utah on Jan 19 . The New York premiere will take place in February.

I'll expect you all to go see it.

Independent films are good for the soul, you know.
