  1. I am happy to hear that this movie was made. I had the good fortune of visiting Lloyd Alexander at his house on two occasions: once to interview him for my school paper with a group of students and once with my teacher, Terry Maguire. I remember his kindness and his love of Myth, especially the works of Robert Graves. Thank you for keeping his memory alive.
