SXSW Quick Interview with Robin Tunney of See Girl Run

Like Grown Ups, this a story about a 35 year old dog groomer who flirts with infidelity when she develops an overwhelming longing for her high school sweetheart.   Her high school sweetheart is a dream of a boyfriend. He's an artist who loves to paint frogs, but hasn't figured out how to make a living doing so and ends up living off of his father's generosity and a job waiting tables at a lobster restaurant in Portland, Maine. It's a story about what waits for you on the other side of "Happily Ever After" and what happens when grownups let their dreams die. Great ensemble cast and subplots that don't take away from the core story.
