    Very excited for Redford’s The Conspirator. Hoping he can find a distributor after tomorrow’s screening and we’ll get a trailer soon after.

    I was interested to see Redford also took “A River Runs Through It” to Toronto looking for a distributor 18 years ago. “River” is still my all-time favorite film.
