Michael Meets Patricia Clarkson and Chansi Harrow!

One of the best parts about going to national film festivals includes meeting... Chlotrudis members from around the country! We met Marilyn, Maryellen, Alex and Thom (although I already knew Thom) in Toronto, and Tara at High Falls... and this year, a bunch of us were lucky enough to meet and spend time with Chansi, one of our new members from Florida! Chansi was delightful, and I hope we get to see her again soon... maybe even at this year's 16th Annual Chlotrudis Awards Ceremony.

One thing that Chansi did as we were leaving the screening of CAIRO TIME was take a few photos of me while introducing myself to Patricia Clarkson! Did I mention how charming she was? And how accessible? I love these photos, because not only do they capture how beautiful she was, but how personable; especially the last where it looks like she's sassing me.

Anyway, here they are for your enjoyment!

Need I say I am envious? Patricia Clarkson is my grown-up crush, replacing Ann Margret and June Lockhart of my youth. All actresses with great ranges. (??)
