More about
"Life's Too Good":
“Weisman [Graham] has a good feel for how family members talk—and often don’t listen—to each other.  A knowing take on family relationships.”  --Daniel Kimmel, Variety, July 1994. “Weisman [Graham] emerges from semi-obscurity as a serious force in women’s filmmaking.” –Linda Matchan, The Boston Globe, 1/30/94. “The generation gap is alive and well in this drama which focuses on the relationships within a family.”  -- Sandra Brennan, New York Times, Sept. 1994.
“While Hollywood flounders around trying to catch the pulse beat of the yet-to-be-adequately-labeled 20-something generation, independent filmmaker Hilary Weisman [Graham] quietly gets the job done for $60,000 in her debut feature, “Life’s Too Good”.  Bolstered by a shrewd and witty script, a confident, no-frills style, and some disarming performances, it’s an auspicious beginning for a fresh new talent.”  -- Peter Keough, The Boston Phoenix, June 1994. “Life’s Too Good” is a smarty-written and sweetly directed first feature film directed by a precocious Hilary Weisman [Graham], age 24.”  Chicago Reader, Oct. 1994
