dine at Sol with S, her husband, and her friend R who is assisting with the casting for the Robert Redford movie, The Conspirator, which is set to be filmed in Savannah at the end of October. The period drama is based on the true events following the assassination of President Lincoln and revolves around the story of Mary Surratt, the only woman among a group charged with conspiring to kill the president. R brought along the art director for the film to dinner. Both men were a delight. They imparted all sorts of interesting tidbits about the film, which I wont divulge here. They confirmed rumors about which house was selected to be Mary's. It's located just a mere block away from my apartment. Robin Wright Penn has been cast in the roll of Mary. While the other lead, Frederick Aiken, Surratt's lawyer, will be portrayed by James McAvoy. The art director told me that that I reminded him of Surrat's daughter Anna. He asked if I'd submitted photographs yet to casting. I told him I hadn't. But after the evening was over I started mulling over the idea. The evening was one of those random Savannah occurrences where you never know who you'll be introduced to and what will come of it.
