Filmed in Austin, TX July 29, 1999. Stars Natalie Portman, she played Queen Amidala/Padme' Naberrie in SW1:TPM. Spent part of one day as a guest at an awards banquet where the M.C.(Tony) introduces Natalies character, and she gives a acceptance speech. Since my table was inline with hers, I and those at my table got camera time(we will see what shows up), but they went to good lengths to scan all of us for the responses to the speakers. Saw three crew from other films there. The crew was great, especially the first asst. director(Matt Beasley) as he went to lengths to make it fun for us. Other sets that day were a bar and a lobby.
More when I know.

Novalee(Natalie) is left pregnant at a Walmart. She has her baby, ends up living with some strange people, learns to use a camera, and survives a tornado. She then wins a photo contest. This is when she gives her speech. Yes, I saw us. About 1:15 into the film. A really nice film. Still in the top 10 after 5 weeks!
