I met the filmmaker at a function once, shortly after she won the Oscar. It was a fundraiser for a women's filmmaking group and everyone was oohing and aahing when she walked by, "Oooh, here comes Cynthia Wade!" She's super nice and I think did a great job. She's going to produce a feature film adaptation of the story with Ellen Page as Hester's lover Stacie Andree.
A narrative feature will bring even more attention to the issues, so that's good.
