After years of successful production design (Tombstone, Three Kings, Vanilla Sky) Catherine Hardwicke shook up the independent film world and earned the 2003 Directing Award at Sundance for Thirteen. She followed up with Lords of Dogtown (2005) and Twilight (2008), which broke box-office records as the highest grossing opening weekend for a film by a female director. Mill Valley Film Festival celebrates the work of this exceptionally talented and tenacious director.

Catherine Hardwicke assembles an impeccable all-star cast for an intimate, honest portrayal of the highs, lows, and heartaches of female friendship. In this poignant, often comedic tale, Drew Barrymore and Toni Collette play lifelong best friends who manage to remain, in good times and bad, each other’s ultimate soulmate.
