Woodstock Film Festival 2

Steal Me a Pencil--about a love affair between two Nazi concentration-camp victims--was profoundly moving. Especially because the two of them--in their 90s and 80s--were in the audience and spoke! The woman, Ina, was one of those special people: wise, confident, good-looking, optimistic, a winner. People like her should be cloned.

Another winner: Under the Same Moon. A fairy tale about Mexican illegals. A modern Lassie Come Home. Hokey but moving. I almost sobbed out loud! The film has such promise that viewers were told not to bring in cellphones -- and we had to underhone a wand search! It WILL be a big winner.
