EPISODE #4 (3.25.11 - 3.31.11): Sara describes the pragmatic overtones of this episode as "more denim than taffeta," which is only natural as the Letter to an Unknown Director recipient is tough guy Nicholas Ray. Sara talks to director Alison Bagnall (THE DISH AND THE SPOON) about star Greta Gerwig, infidelity and manic pixie dream girls; Elliot Lavine, distributor of such films as RED ROCK WEST and RIVERS AND TIDES and recent winner of the San Francisco Film Critics Circle's Marlon Riggs Award, explains how he came to (re)distribute THE WOMAN CHASER, a hot property at Sundance in 1999, and argues that a blockbuster like INCEPTION is more "independent" than current Sundance fare; Sara riff-previews "wides and limiteds."
