“The Little Traitor,” a feature film starring client Alfred Molina, has just opened in L.A. It is based on the Amos Oz novel “The Panther in the Basement,” which has long been a favorite of mine and Fred Molina. So much so, that we tried to buy it a few years ago when we had a deal as producers at Sony Pictures.

To our chagrin, the movie rights had already been optioned by Monte and Marilyn Hall whom had engaged screenwriter/director Lynn Roth to co-produce, write and direct. As luck, or “Divine Providence” would have it, Lynn is a friend of mine and fellow Board Member of the Morningstar Commission and was running a program for the Jewish Federation in Tel Aviv. Before you could say “Divine Providence,” Mr. Molina was in costume, shooting the movie in Israel and loving every second of his time in Israel accompanied by his wife actor/writer Jill Molina.

Go see this movie, and while you’re at it go see Mr. Molina in “An Education.” 

I am kvelling for him.
