Radiant Rolls Out As Cool As I Am At AFM
Claire Danes & Sarah Bolger in As Cool As I Am
  
Debuting at AFM, Radiant Films International headed by Mimi Steinbauer is handling the foreign rights to the comedy drama As Cool As I Am from producers Matt Williams (What Women Want) and Judd Payne (Bernie) of Wind Dancer Films, and Anthony Mastromauro of Identity Pictures. The film is directed by Max Mayer and written by Virginia Korus Spragg based on the novel by Pete Fromm.

Steinbauer commented, "As Cool As I Am is a funny, intelligent and spirited take on the relationship between a mother and daughter. It's a perfect cast for this touching, light-hearted film where the phrase 'raising a kid is hard, raising your mom is harder' comes into sharp focus. This is just the kind of film I love and I am just thrilled to be looking after the international roll out."

The film centers around a bright and intelligent teenage girl, Lucy (Bolger) and her almost boyfriend Kenny (Mann), who come of age in a small rural town. With her often absent and very young parents (Marsden and Danes) more in need of guidance and parenting than their daughter, Lucy turns to cooking shows to cope with the turbulent pains of adolescence and finds particular comfort in the celebrated culinary personality, Mario Batali. While Lucy charges ahead toward womanhood and her dream of becoming a chef, her mother is desperately searching for her own bigger life in this family comedy filled with laughter, tears, sex, love and pasta.

Executive produced by Wind Dancer's David McFadzean and Dete Meserve along with Ginger Sledge.

Currently in post-production, the film's cast includes Claire Danes, James Marsden, Sarah Bolger, Thomas Mann, and Jeremy Sisto with real life TV chef Mario Batali and two-time Academy Award nominee Peter Fonda.
