Subject: Riding in Cars with Boys and Bill
In the Penny Marshall directed sobfest comedy Riding in Cars with Boys,
the lead character Beverly Donofrio (played by Drew Barrymore) mentions
Shakespeare and also says she played Juliet (I assume that's the Juliet
in Romeo and Juliet) in a high school production. Movie website is at
http://www.spe.sony.com/movies/ridingincars/ The DVD is out 3/19 and has
commentary by Barrymore, among other extras. Book is at
sr_1_1/002-8650094-3140019 I saw the film on an airplane, and it was far
less bad than I would thought it would be.
