This movie has quite the "little engine that could" story. It has been 4+ years in the making, and as I mentioned in this post, production was put on hold indefinitely in 2010 due to lack of funding. Fans of the best-selling book wouldn't have that, though. Thousands of fans donated the necessary funds to make it a reality. I'm going with a group of friends to see it tomorrow, and you should add it to your weekend plans too! Click here to see if it's playing in your city.

In other I'm-so-proud-of-my-talented-friends news, my wonderful friend Kiersten was on Grey's Anatomy last week!
Fantastic work, darlings! :-)
