Miss you Already

This poignant, original feature film, written by the talented UK screenwriter Morwenna Banks and starring Toni Colette and Drew Barrymore, made me laugh out loud and cry too loudly, when I first read it as Head of Acquisition and Development at New Sparta Films. The story of a terminal illness, crafted sensitively with much life-affirming humour, was directed by US Director Catherine Hardwicke of Twilight fame, and spoke to many. I collaborated with the team on the script’s creative development and execution, throughout the production and post-production process. Christopher Simon, the producer, had brought together a truly talented, dedicated team, with many highlights, including a Paloma Faith and Diane Warren original track. The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival.
