I like Dallas, I lived in Dallas for over 15 years, but when it comes to the only really cool city in Texas, there's just one: Austin. It's a great place, and they've got a great film festival. Usually at festivals they give out awards to some half-dead celebrity from forty years ago, or Errol Flynn's stuntman's wardrobe assistant. Now in Austin, Michale Keaton is giving Ron Howard an award. That kind of festival. And 'True Beauty' is part of it. So I'm going out there, and if for nothing else then for the filmmaker happy hour Friday night.
The Austin Film Festival runs October 22-29.
