Peter Davis' Status Update: Suicidal Cinematic Tendencies
Funny or Die's only female writer/producer Lauren Palmigiano, has a hilarious short film called Cried Suicide in the Tribeca Film Festival's 2010 short film line-up. Starring Nicole Paone as a chick who is so heartbroken over an ex-girlfriend, she fakes suicide for attention and gets more than she bargained for from sympathetic friends who come bearing food, tears and even porn. "I wanted to make a short about someone that is in that crazy place of heartbreak where they make really irrational decisions because we've all been there and when you're not there, its funny," Palmigiano tells me. "I have such talented friends. It was a great experience and I'm so excited that it's being received well enough to be selected for any festival, especially Tribeca.
