Description - A Killer Life by Christine Vachon

This is a no-holds barred account of a filmmaker who looks straight into the eye of the Hollywood blockbuster storm and dares not to blink."A Killer Life" presents readers with a behind-the-scenes memoir of the battle between creativity and commerce - and a renegade's rise to being one of the most powerful female producers in independent film today. It traces the early years Vachon spent producing such controversial and critically acclaimed movies as "Happiness", and "Kids", films that paved the way for Academy Award-winning triumphs like "Boys Don't Cry".She recounts the birth and rise of independent film revealing the stories behind star castings and firings and films that never got made; and how the often unhappy bedfellows of finance and creativity affect what we get to see on the big screen.
