WORLD PREMIERE of COMING UP ROSES
Set to screen at 2011 Woodstock Film Festival
(Woodstock, NY) Sept. 15, 2011:
"Coming Up Roses," written with award-winning screenwriter Christina Lazaridi, is Lisa Albright's directorial feature debut. Albright has an extensive background in theater, having participated in over 40 productions in New York and theatres across the country. The film will premiere Sept. 23, 5:45pm at the Woodstock Playhouse with a repeat screening Sept. 24, 6:15pm at the Rosendale Theater.
The pic features Bernadette Peters as the domineering Diane, a woman with enormous problems and a titanic personality to match. She shuttles her teenage daughter Alice (in a terrific performance by Rachel Brosnahan), across small-town America, confronting bad neighborhoods, money woes, failed love affairs and depression.
"'Coming Up Roses" is based on a true story, a moment in my young life that illuminates the power of resilience," says Albright. "It's a story about the power of imagination and the menacing reality of insatiable need."
