I much enjoyed meeting Rebecca, Louis and Lea last night. I was impressed with Lea's versatility as a young actress in two very different and interesting films. Personally, as I am deaf and wear hearing aids (and read subtitles), I told Rebecca how her film etched on my memory with such a 'big' reference to a hearing at the end of 'Dear Prudence'. I recommend both films when they return.
