"A FESTIVAL WIFE" A FESTIVAL BOOK PUBLISHED ON FEST21.COM
Filmfestivals.com
reveals the final chapter of "A Festival Wife," in Cannes. A first
novel by former Variety reporter Rex Weiner, and publish on fest21.com.

A Festival Wife - Conclusion Chapter 12:The last bloody reel

introduction

...

So
the comedy is re-enacted in the dark, played out on the wide screen of
our dreams, this frantic, naïve reaching for the brilliant, shining
denouement that has already, to scattered applause, come and gone.
Cannes, perhaps, or maybe Venice or Berlin
From festival wife to wife all year round…
A chaperone… she met his gaze for a moment, then looked away… his hands gripped.
For the first time since he was a boy.
THE END
