I didn't know what to expect when I saw the screening for Waiting For Budd, but what I witnessed in that theater was a very touching documentary that was moving & informative.
Viewing behind the scenes shows everyone what us, as actors go through when portraying characters either on screen or stage. You had no choice but to feel for what the producer, director and actors had to go through in order to overcome adversity. What was also very moving was hearing about the screenwriter, Bud Schulberg, and learning a little bit what the brilliant writer was all about and what he stood for. Then seeing barely able to walk in the theater, then witnessing his play 'On The Waterfront' with his family there beside him for the last time before he died, brought chills to every inch of me from there on throughout the film. Very well done!
