A dozen years after bursting on the scene with the award-winning Thirteen (2003), an indelible portrait of the tight connection between teenage girls, director Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight, 2008) returns with another insightful portrait of female bonding, perhaps the most honest portrayal of the highs, lows, and heartaches of enduring friendship since Beaches (1988). Drew Barrymore and Toni Collette head up an all-star cast as Jess and Milly, best friends since meeting at London primary schoolbonding over everything from first kisses and concerts to a shared love of Wuthering Heights. Decades on, their relationship hits a rough patch as Jess struggles to start a family with her blue-collar love, Jago (Paddy Considine), while a troubling diagnosis disrupts Milly’s happy home life with dreamboat Kit (Dominic Cooper). A rocking soundtrack (including a Joan Jett original), coupled with Hardwicke’s intimate style results in a poignant, often comical journey with two women who remain, through it all, each other’s ultimate soulmate.

The October 11 Tribute program will feature an onstage conversation with Catherine Hardwicke, a clip reel of her work, a screening of Miss You Already, and the presentation of the MVFF Award. Join us after the program for a celebratory reception at Tiburon Tavern in Tiburon.

Additional Information

Choosing material that is thought-provoking and controversial, Catherine Hardwicke has cemented her place as an auteur filmmaker and as a member of an all-too small group of female directors. She is in pre-production on Stargirl, an adaptation of the bestselling Young Adult novel of the same name by Jerry Spinelli. Hardwicke’s first film as a director was the critically-acclaimed Thirteen, which garnered numerous awards and nominations, including the Director’s Award at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival. She has since become best known as the director of Twilight, which launched the worldwide blockbuster franchise, The Twilight Saga and earned nearly $400 million at the worldwide box office. Her book, The Twilight Director’s Notebook, was an international best seller, translated into 20 languages. Other credits include Red Riding Hood and Lords of Dogtown. Hardwicke previously worked as a production designer on films directed by Richard Linklater, David O. Russell, Cameron Crowe, Lisa Cholodenko, and Costa Gavras. She holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from UT Austin, and did graduate work in animation at UCLA Film School. She frequently works as a mentor at labs for the Sundance Institute, Film Independent, and the Ghetto Film School.
