FEMALE FEEDBACK Festival Testimonial – June 11, 2018

From director Lisa Baron & Writer/Actor Malin Barr (HEDDA NEEDS HELP)

It was really great to receive feedback, especially since people seemed to enjoy the film! Of course, that feels good. It was also really rewarding to hear that the audience liked Hedda and was on her side though her motives and actions, because our biggest note in our first draft was creating a more likeable character, given the dark nature of our plot. After hearing the feedback, it feels like we accomplished that goal!

Hedda Needs Help tells the tale of Hedda, an aspiring poet and undying optimist, tasked with watching the most prized possession of Manhattan’s acclaimed poet, Albert Stein: his dog. But when Hedda accidentally kills her big break we find that no one fails quite like Hedda, as she carries the weight of her problems around Manhattan in this all too real comedy gone awry.
