Sundance Film Festival 2013


I had an amazing time at the Sundance Film Festival this year. I saw some amazing movies and documentaries, including “Who is Dayani Cristal?”, “Inequality for All,” and “Afternoon Delight.”

I also had the honor of being part of a table reading with many great actors and entertainment professionals, including Alvaro Rodriguez (co-writer of Machete). I played Molly, the protagonist in “The Scoundrels Club” – winner of the Table Read My Screenplay Contest.

Overall, it was a wonderful time. I am grateful that I had the opportunity to see such thought provoking films that expand my world view! Til next year…

“Boxing Day” Released to Great Reviews in the UK!!!

Boxing Day Movie Poster

“Boxing Day”, a film by Bernard Rose was released in theaters today in the UK! It is a wonderful movie, with exceptional performances by everyone, including the leads – Danny Huston and Matthew Jacobs. I voiced the GPS, Cynthia, which is a surprisingly large part, considering they spend much of the movie in the car. If you don’t get a chance to see it in the UK, you will be able to own it on DVD in March. Let the reviews below intrigue you in the meantime, or check out the Boxing Day Trailer by clicking the poster above…

Suburban Sin by Orrie Hitt available on

“Suburban Sin” by Orrie Hitt

It’s 1959. The town of Clinton, just a short train ride from the Big Apple, is awash with sexuality. There’s Olive, who feels the urge to merge with her married neighbor Sally, but fears her lesbian lust is an abomination. Olive’s long-suffering husband, Jerry, seeks solace in the arms of his bombshell sister-in-law. And why did Sally’s husband, Fred, disappear with Ruth Archer at the hottest party on Morris Drive every Saturday night? Pulp sleazemaster Orrie Hitt hits a bull’s-eye with this shocking tale of tawdry affairs in mid-century America.

“Woman of Flowers: Heirs to the Byzantium by Susan Shwartz

Alexa, princess of Byzantium, was destined to rule with her devoted brother Marric until the evil forces cast dark magic upon her and made her betray him. Thus, Marric feels under assault, a usurper has seized the throne and, by means both magical and moral, defeated Alexa. Saved by warrior allies, Alexa has been taken to an unfamiliar northern land. Convinced of Marric’s death, she is consumed by guilt and fear. Even from afar, the usurper’s power reaches out to trap her.

Savage dreams agonize her nights, prophecies of doom upset her days, and the fiery magic runs wild within her soul. Alexa’s only hope lies amidst the Druids of the distant Misty Isles. They alone can cleanse her of the darkness that infects her and teach her to use her powers well. But Alexa must learn more than just the secrets of the Druids, for within her hands and heart lie the very survival of Penilyn itself and the fate of Byzantium.
