Last Stop Kew Gardens

I feel terrible that I missed seeing this documentary, which was aired on Ch. 21 this past Weds. night. Over weak coffee at Cannelle’s French bakery (the baked goods are definitely not weak!) on Thursday a.m., a close friend was relating details from it to me, saying that it was gripping and moved her to tears. The NY Times had an article about it on Thursday in the metro section, but by then it was too late for people to catch it. 

If you peruse the site for the film, you’ll see that some of the people interviewed for it are ones you might recognize, like Steve Brill (Wildman Steve), Peter Mayer (former CEO of Penguin Books), and Jerry Springer. 

I think I’ll wind up buying the DVD because it mirrors the experience of several of my family members, including my-guy.

    By chance Google alerted me to this blog and the comments on my film,”Last Stop Kew Gardens” –and the NY Times article.
    Apparently it’s stirred up an enormous amount of interest— which is a surprise to me.

    I bought it and watched it last night. It’s a nice project, an interesting watch. Congratulations Robert.
