This stunning ensemble piece is set for a November 19th Release on both DVD and VHS

Culver City, Ca. (Sept. 13, 2002) - On November 19th, Director Jill Sprecher's (Clockwatchers) critically-acclaimed film, 13 Conversations About One Thing, gathers an all-star ensemble cast in a fresh and whimsical look at the invisible, everyday, and dynasty-shaping miracles that we have come to call life.

The effect, according to filmcritic.com's Norm Schrager, "is a swirling environment of very different New Yorkers, all trying to get what they want - even though they don't know what it is."

Written for the screen with Sister Karen, with whom she collaborated on Clockwatchers, Jill Sprecher's 13 Conversations About One Thing examines, through conversations, five distinct New York tales.

13 Conversations About One Thing observes the lives of seemingly disparate characters - a public defender (Matthew McConaughey, Reign of Fire, Contact) whose life suddenly mirrors that of the criminals he prosecutes; a college professor (John Turturro, Mr. Deeds, Barton Fink) facing a poignant crossroads; an envious businessman (Alan Arkin, America's Sweethearts, Edward Scissorhands) seeking revenge on a compulsively cheerful co-worker; an optimistic cleaning woman (Clea Duvall, Girl, Interrupted, The Astronaut's Wife) searching for miracles in the aftermath of a tragic accident; and lastly, a woman (Amy Irving, Traffic, Deconstructing Harry) forced to face her husband's infidelity due to an untimely return of a lost wallet - are interwoven to create a touching tapestry of human experience. These ordinary people all find themselves asking the fundamental question philosophers have asked throughout history:

What is Happiness, and how does one achieve it.

A Sony Pictures Classics Release, 13 Conversations About One Thing is a Gina Resnick/Beni Atoori Production with Double A Films and Entitled Entertainment in presentation with Single Cell Pictures. Written by Karen and Jill Sprecher, produced by Beni Atoori and Gina Resnick, and directed by Jill Sprecher.
