"A FESTIVAL WIFE" CURRENTLY SERIALIZED ON FEST21.COM
Filmfestivals.com,
the online source for global film festival news and resources, will
serialize "A Festival Wife," a first novel by former Variety reporter
Rex Weiner, and publish on fest21.com culminating in Cannes.
Here is the introduction to the seventh chapter.
A Festival thriller by Rex Weiner, Illustration by Nesta Morgan

... "
Forget about the goddam Luxembourg tax deal," said Charles, peering
darkly into his Bloody Mary, stirring it with a spoon so that the
medicinal mixture of Worcestershire and spices swirled to the surface.
"The real story on your film finance guys is they're killers, Henry.
They kill people."

"My head is killing me, Charles, that's all I know," I said, over my second coffee on the terrace of the Medici.

We
were now entering Day Six of the San Lorenzo International Film
Festival. Four more days to go and this morning it felt like forever.
The hangover wasn't helping at all. All of us had gotten so bloody
pissed the night before at the New Line party that I could scarcely
recall where I'd been or what had happened. If not for tripping over a
bag of designer giveaways on the floor of my room - assorted shampoo
and soaps, a stinky candle in a tin, deluxe skin creams and a bottle of
California wine (in Italy!), a "Yo, Snow!" T-shirt and baseball cap -
the memory of the New Line party might have been suppressed entirely. A
blurred vision of Nora Callaway dancing amidst a circle of twirling
dwarves appeared briefly, as if rising through a mist, then was
consigned to experiences better left unexamined.
