I got an email early this morning about the movie, Like Dandilion Dust, an adaptation of Karen Kingsbury's novel of the same name. I forwarded the information to a large group of writer friends, but before the day is completely gone, I want to blog about it and share with even more people:
Adapted from the novel by NY Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury, the movie stars Mira Sorvino (Academy Award winner) and Barry Pepper (Golden Globe nominee). It’s about a mother who gave her child up for adoption and then tried to get him back. Yes, the child is the rope in a legal and parental tug-of-war . . . and yes, you’ll need four Kleenex and somebody you love beside you, but . . . you’ll float out of the theater smiling.
“Like Dandelion Dust” won 20-plus “Best Film” and “Best Actor” awards at pre-release film festivals from CA to NY, and USA Today heralds it as “the next ‘Blind Side.’” So there’s great buzz going into this weekend. Where to see it? A list of theaters screening the film is at: www.likedandeliondust.com. Click on the “theater” tab to find the nearest location.
And here's some advice. If at all possible, see it opening weekend. That's when the biggest message is sent to Hollywood.
