24 August 2017 12:34 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

For author Judith Newman, conceiving her twin sons at the age of 40 was difficult—but not nearly as hard as discovering that one of the twins, Gus, was autistic. In her new book To Siri With Love, Newman reflects on her family’s journey with Gus, now 15, and on the remarkable comfort he receives from talking with Siri (the Apple personal assistant).

Newman tried for seven years, suffered multiple miscarriages, and spent $70,000 on infertility treatments before conceiving her fraternal twins with husband John Snowdon — a former opera singer who is now 85 (studies have linked older parental age with higher rates »

Berlinale: Ad Vitam to Produce Bruni Tedeschi Pic, Acquires Lelio’s ‘Fantastic Woman’ (Exclusive)

11 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Berlin– Ad Vitam, one of France’s leading independent distribution companies, is set to produce Valeria Bruni Tedeschi’s “Les estivants,” the actress-turned-director’s follow-up to “A Castle in Italy” (pictured above) which competed at Cannes

Launched in 1998 by Gregory Gajos, Arthur Hallereau and Alexandra Henochsberg, Ad Vitam has been raising its profile and scope lately with the launch of sales outfit Alma Cinema in partnership with Charles Gillibert’s production company CG Cinema (“Mustang,” “Personal Shopper”).

Although Ad Vitam is usually mainly involved in distribution and co-production, it boarded Tedeschi’s project as a full-on producer because of Henochsberg’s close relationship with Tedeschi. A popular actress in Europe, Tedeschi recently starred in Paolo Virzi’s “Like Crazy,” which played at Directors’ Fortnight in cannes, and Bruno Dumont’s “Slack Bay,” a competition entry at Cannes in 2016.

Budgeted at 6 million euros ($6.8 million), “Les estivants” was written by Bruni Tedeschi »
