"Stand out performances include Diana Wilde's “I’m Still Here” ...Wilde is beyond charming, her smiling eyes and ingratiating manner are a lovely addition to the cast. Her version of “I’m Still Here” was poignant and wry with just the right amount of self-deprecation and humor."
-- Review by Erin McNeil, MN Playlist
"Diana Wilde’s “I’m Still Here,” is a little play on its own, wise and brittle and heroic" -- Review by Dominic P. Papatola, Pioneer Press

Last May, I got my SAG-AFTRA card at long last, working under the direction of Charlie Kessler, opposite Mr. Frank Langella Himself. Currently praying to the Gods of Film Editing, that they may in their infinite wisdom see me as conveying essential information, and therefore, not cut me.
Me. And Frank Langella. Alone together on camera in a scene in a real live feature film.
