GETTING TO KNOW YOU
Written and directed by Liz Lachman

A romantic comedy about sex, intimacy, women, and the value of getting to know someone first.

TENNY BELL (Elizabeth Keener), a successful but superficial cartoonist, has a horrendous dating philosophy: Look…and leap! Her sister MARLA (Dana Delany) and Marla's husband RUSS (Ian Gomez) try to point Tenny in the right direction, but Tenny continues to only date the beautiful women, with disastrous results.

When Tenny meets the perfect woman (Michelle C. Bonilla) at an out-of-town bridal shower, a phone-sex and internet dating storm brews as she tries to do it right. But there are a few surprises in store for Tenny and she's about to learn how to truly “get to know” someone.

A Note from Liz:
I was so lucky to get a stellar cast and crew to work with, from Alexis Fish, who had produced a number of Sundance shorts to the actors, who all had great TV and film credits and loads of experience.
