In the "this has potential" department, Julia Stiles has directed a short film called Raving which was just shown at the TriBeca Film Festival. Zooey Deschanel and the talented stage actor & mime Bill Irwin play a couple of New Yorkers whose personal crises intersect. It's on the Sundance Channel May 8th and 23rd.
I know there's no actress I'd rather have a couple of beers with than Deschanel, but I've never known what to make of Stiles. She never seemed entirely comfortable with teen roles, but as an adult she has been lost in ordinary material. Her only upcoming credit is another Bourne movie this summmer.
