I went to see a few screenings at IFC Center’s Francofest. When the film’s credits were rolling, and a Q&A with Franco was to follow, my friend had to go to the bathroom. I almost jumped up with our stuff to join her, because I had to go, and because i knew IFC Center’s bathrooms are right by their ‘backstage’ area. I decided to sit, and let my friend have her possible moment with Franco. I had already had a few after all. She comes back and tells me that as she was going downstairs, he was going up the stairs.
He winked at her.
I smiled, glad I didn’t go with her .
I would have thought that wink was about me.
