DIRECTOR: CLAUDIA WEILL
CAST: MELANIE MAYRON, ELI WALLACH, ADAM COHEN
Screening followed by a conversation between Rachel Weisz and Hilton Als.
Weill’s first feature, a painfully true paean to the peculiarities of female friendship, stars thirtysomething’s Melanie Mayron as Susan Weinblatt, a New York photographer who’s blindsided when her roommate and bestie, Anne (Anita Skinner), announces that she’s moving out to marry boyfriend Bob Balaban. Eli Wallach and Christopher Guest provide further fine supporting work, but the central focus is on the vicissitudes of Susan and Anne’s too-close-for-comfort relationship.
