The Waiting Room

Congratulations on your Film “The Waiting Room.” I caught a brief piece of it in preview at the Festival but watching it finally tonight it seemed as effortlessly written as it is adorable to watch with a fragile balance of sweet and surreal pathos played by all. It is really lovely film Debra and thank you for sending it. I am still in awe of the selflessness of Actors and their commitment to  your Film is where it should be… completely with you.
– Armand Assante
