A conversation with Melissa Leo in her element at the foothills of the Catskills where mystical energies make things happen. A little over a week ago when writer/director Courtney Hunt wrote the short, then the feature Frozen River, then Melissa Leo and Misty Upham brought the narrative home, winning the Sundance Grand Jury Prize for Dramatic Competition. A Sony Pictures Classics release.
Happy 150th Birthday Alice Guy Blache!
What brought us together – going to Sundance, hosting panels and programming, and speaking engagements, was a connection to a very special mentor, guru, and guiding star – Alice Guy Blache.
