Film co-written by well-known freelancer to open Inside Out Film Festival

Margarita, a feature film co-written by Margaret Webb, well-known as a freelance magazine writer, author and writing teacher at Ryerson University, has been selected as the opening weekend film of Toronto's Inside Out Film Festival. It will be on Saturday, May 19 at 7:15 at the TIFF Bell Lightbox Theatre 

It will be the film's North American premier (having been chosen for the 2012 Audience Favourite Award at the International Women's Film Festival in France.) The play was co-directed by Laurie Colbert and Dominique Cardona; co-written by Margaret Webb and Laurie Colbert. The synopsis:
Margarita, an illegal Mexican nanny, has her hands full with a commitment-phobic girlfriend she can’t convince to marry her, a randy handyman in lust with her, a self-involved surly teenager, and cash-strapped yuppie employers she really has to babysit. When authorities move to deport Margarita, she resigns herself to starting a new life back home in Mexico. Until, that is, family and friends discover her situation and suddenly everyone wants to save Margarita.
