If Zach Braff can get people to donate money so that he can make a sequel to GARDEN STATE, I suppose there have to be other things that are decidedly right with the internet as well. After many years and many blog sites battling to get one of Judy Blume's most beloved and heart-wrenching young adult novels to the big screen, seeing TIGER EYES debut its fruition is another check in the win column. The movie is being released in limited distribution but over the weekend a couple members of the cast, including former Pink Power Ranger, Amy Jo Johnson
, as well as the delightfully tenacious and eternally insightful writer, Judy Blume, were in attendance. This was a labor of love, if you follow the story (best told through Judy's personal tweets
), and what a great thing for those of us who will never grow too old for Judy.
