Troutdale, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/17/2013 -- Cooky Castali has arrived! Cooky tells us..."To write in English is a new mechanic and a new energy for me, and you know what? I love it!” She continues to tell us with "Woman in Crisis!" all women will say "Oh! but ...that is me!” and all men will say "Oh! but ...that is my wife!” It seems these characters are very re-lateable to the French and American audiences!
The film industry desperately needs more women who write, direct and produce strong characters for women. Unfortunately women are grossly under represented in Hollywood. Unless you are a "Hollywood" big name a woman can expect to be cast as maids, hookers, or drug addicts. In addition, only 28% of roles for women are speaking roles. With a large feminine public it is time for writers like Cooky Castali to bring strong female characters to the silver screen.
In the paths of Nora Ephron, Callie Khouri and Diablo Cody ...Cooky Castali will bring us taboo topics infused with humor, paradoxes and simplicity.
