Talked to Steve (and Joe) tonight. For all those who have been asking how Steve has been recovering from his stroke, the answer is: great! He has moved back home and back to his routine. He sounded in high spirits on the phone. Both he and Joe are itching to see the movie. I told them my impressions of the first rough cut: it was coming together better than I ever hoped; their performances were great. I dream of the time when we can all hang out again — feted like kings at a major film festival.
