Sweet Talk

Feature film Sweet Talk

“Sweet Talk” is director Terri Hanauer’s first feature film — and she does an admirable job of extracting memorable performances from her leads, as well as the supporting cast, who also happen to turn up as various characters within the film’s fantasy sequences.

As low-budget indie romance dramedies go, “Sweet Talk” delivers a surprisingly enjoyable experience .

The Way You Look Tonight

What I loved most about this production, besides the stunning writing, was the stellar directing. Terri Hanauer (director) navigates the actors with absolute precision, making this simple story a sheer joy to watch – grasping the funny moments, but letting the honesty of the story shine without making it seem silly.

La Ronde de Lunch

…in a delightfully over-the-top staging, director Terri Hanauer lets her large and talented cast off the leash, allowing them to romp freely through Lefcourt’s extravagancies.

LA Times

Hanauer does a bang-up job of directing, letting loose a stellar cast of actors to perform at their creative best while still holding a firm rein over the tone of the piece. Her use of imaginative props, music, choreography (Tracy Silver) and costumes (Shon Le Blanc) add immeasurably to the evening.
