Heather Graham’s new film, "Half Magic," is her directorial debut -- and she wrote the script to boot! But that's not the only reason it's notable.
The romantic comedy is about three female friends searching for empowerment in a male-dominated world. Exhibit A? Graham's character, Honey, who wants to become a director in Hollywood, but has to go through a misogynistic male boss to get there.
All of which makes the film quite timely, considering both the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements.
But while both of those are hot-button topics right now, the film has been seven years in the making.
"It is so ironic how relevant this is when you began the project seven years ago!" says Rach. "It comes out at the pinnacle of the country having a national discussion because of #MeToo, of course. It's unbelievable."
"It's really lucky," Heather agrees. "All the roadblocks that we hit, that slowed the project down, made it come out now. People are more open to hearing women's stories than ever before. People care about this issue. And as a woman, that's amazing."
"It's so fun to tell a story that you care about — empowering women," she adds.
"I wanted to make a movie about that and to talk about the things that I've thought about — like sexism,” she continues. “I look at my friends and I think, 'You're so beautiful. You're so wonderful. Don't let the culture beat you down! Believe in yourself and feel good about yourself.'"
We couldn't agree more. Hear more from Heather in the video above!
