I had not checked on the Special Guests section of the Florida Film Festival for over a week. I was on the Festival site to check the details on ticket packages and prices for the post on the Passholders Dinner, and thought I’d check to see if any Special Guests had been added to the line up. SUSAN SARANDON IS GOING TO BE THERE!!!!!!!!!! SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!
Okay, just give me a minute to calm down.
Ah, that’s better. I’m actually surprised at my reaction — I went and reviewed her IMDB page and discovered I’ve seen very few of her films. But she is the kind of person I want to be when I grow up — polished, articulate, thoughtful, confident.
As the Florida Film Festival usually does, there will be a screening of one of her films — Dead Man Walking — followed by a Q&A with the lady herself. Yet another reason to get a Platinum Pass — I forgot that the Cinephile pass did not include admission to the films and Q&A events. The Susan Sarandon event is on Friday, April 11, 7:30 – 10:45 pm. Tickets are $75 each.
