Adele Gives an Extremely Sick Fan From Northern Ireland the Surprise of a Lifetime

4 March 2016 8:33 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Adele just provided everyone with yet another reason to worship at her feet. After kicking off her tour in Belfast, Northern Ireland, last month, the "When We Were Young" singer gave an extremely sick 12-year-old fan named Rebecca Gibney the surprise of a lifetime when she casually dropped by her home to say hello. Rebecca's mother, Tracy Gibney, says her daughter suffers from cerebral palsy and epilepsy and is unable to walk, talk, or see. Still, the preteen finds joy in Adele's music and has become quite a big fan. Because of this, her mother started a Change.org petition to have Adele come visit her, and luckily the icon happened to see it. "It happened!!! Thank you so much for liking and sharing everyone," Tracy wrote on a Facebook community page about Adele's surprise. "I'm overwhelmed and couldn't be any happier for my baby, still in shock. Adele is just amazing. »

Berlin: Memento’s Artscope Acquires Berlin Generation 14plus Opener ‘Girl Asleep’ (Exclusive)

26 January 2016 2:10 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Artscope, Paris-based Memento Film Intl.’s new talent label, has acquired international sales rights to “Girl Asleep,” the Australian rites-of-passage fantasy drama that opens Berlin’s 2016 Generation 14plus, one of the festival’s biggest sidebars.

The first feature of Rosemary Myers, the artistic director of Adelaide’s Windmill Theatre, comedy-laced “Girl Asleep” hits Berlin with a good buzz off its world premiere at the Adelaide Film Festival where its screenings were the fastest selling film in the festival’s 13-year-old history. “Girl Asleep” went on to win the Aff’s 2015 Foxtel Movies Audience Award.

Set in a vintage brown-and-yellow ‘70s Australia of flared trousers, laden timber décor and eye-popping colored wallpaper, “Girl Asleep” plumbs the contradictory, wrenching and often downright excruciating daily and fantasy life of near-15 Greta Driscoll, kicking off with her first day at a new school, befriended by the class nerd and picked upon by the school bitches. »
