Cinequest Film Festival: Mackenzie Phillips

Mackenzie Phillips

It was the opening night of Cinequest-19 where I spotted Mackenzie Phillips (American Graffiti, One Day at a Time) at the California Theatre. I told her that it was nice to see her. To which she replied, “Nice to be seen.” I asked, “Did she had something to share with San Jose Metblogs?” Yes, she told me about her tell-all book that should be out in the spring. It took a bit longer than spring, but her controversial memoir “High on Arrival” is now out. Mackenzie is making the talk show rounds and, this evening she will be on with Larry King @ 6:00 PM.

Yes, I enjoy the films of Cinequest, but part of the lure is meeting the producers, directors, actors, TV and movie stars. I’m looking forward to Cinequest Film Festival 20 next February.

Cinequest 19: Opening Night Gala

I’ll begin by saying, “If you missed the opening, you missed a fantastic night out in San Jose.”

Ellie Kranner’s ‘Wake’ was the perfect quirky pick up my spirits (pun intended) film I’ve seen in some time. Bijou Phillips captivating portrayal of Carys had me laughing and crying along with her. And who could resist Ian Somerhalder as Tyler. Jane Seymour (Open Heart Necklace bejeweled) as Carys’s mother added a, “Oh, look at Jane”, moment.

When the curtain came down and the applause died, Ellie Kranner was gifted a Vivienne Tam HP Digital Clutch Notebook. We were then treated to cast interviews. Someone asked how long it took to film. I was surprised to learn that they had ‘it’ in only four weeks! Yes, I asked a question too. I wanted to know if Jane Seymour was actually paid a salary, or was the flashing of her necklace enough? A laughing Ms. Kranner assured me that they did indeed pay Seymour .

As I was leaving the theatre I spotted a familiar face – Bijou’s sister, Mackenzie (American Graffiti, One Day at a Time). I told her that it was nice to see her. To which she replied, “Nice to be seen.” Did she had something to share with San Jose Metblogs? Yes, her tell-all book( Simon & Schuster) in the spring.

Before the show I made sure to introduce Mark Tran, ‘All About Dad‘, to Jason.
