July 11 Montgomery County Gazette article: "Indie filmmaker does it his way in metro area"

First I thought the Gazette did not run this interview article yesterday, and then I found out a few minutes ago that they ran it in their entertainment pull-out section. An awesome article, much needed for press in MoCo (Montgomery County) for the 7/12 - 18 run of Date Number One in Kensington - thanks Gazette!

Here are the first couple of paragraphs from the article:

" Sujewa Ekanayake takes pride in keeping his craft pure and relatively simple. The 34-year-old Kensington filmmaker describes his latest film, ‘‘Date Number One,” as ‘‘an ultra-low⁄no budget, D.I.Y. (do it yourself), real indie, self-distributed feature filmed in the Washington, D.C., area.”

The ‘‘comedy about several first dates,” self-produced and distributed via his own Wild Diner Films label, Ekanayake says, ‘‘is made up of five different stories.” He notes that various reviewers have called it ‘‘witty,” ‘‘funny” and ‘‘sexy, sexy, sexy.”

The idea for the film came from ‘‘a funny scene involving a date” in his previous film ‘‘Wild Diner.” "

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.

Great movie, well written, well acted.  An interesting NYC experience.

Check out the movie at Netflix -
