Our new movie theater is still on the drawing board. But Westport has always produced movie-makers. And it’s still a great place to make movies.
All 3 elements come together on Sunday (March 24, 4 p.m., Town Hall), when Westport Cinema Initiative presents a screening of “Hello I Must Be Going.” Starring Blythe Danner, it was shot in Westport 2 years ago — and written and directed by Westport residents Todd Louiso and Sarah Koskoff.
The film — about a young divorcee moving back with her parents in suburban Connecticut, where an affair with a younger man rejuvenates her passion for life — received a Grand Jury Prize at last year’s Sundance Film Festival.
Westporters will recognize plenty of local scenes on screen — Compo, downtown, Viva’s to name just 3.
And plenty of local faces, in cameo roles. You can figure those out for yourselves.
