On Wednesday, July 17, 3 p.m. ET American director, producer and writer Susan Seidelman will be Halli’s guest for the hour to talk about the release of her latest film, The Hot Flashes Movie, which recently opened nationwide.
 
Susan Seidelman belongs to the first wave of female independent film makers in the American cinema of the 1980s. A student of fashion and arts at Drexel University in Philadelphia, her first forays into movie-making at New York University resulted in numerous awards. In 1982, Seidelman made her feature film debut with Smithereens, which was the first American independent film to be selected for competition at the 1982 Cannes Film Festival. Seidelman's second theatrical film Desperately Seeking Susan, featuring then-rising star Madonna, was a major box-office and critical success and launched the film careers of co-stars Rosanna Arquette and Aidan Quinn among others. Also on the list of Seidelman’s celebrated films: Making Mr. Right, Musical Chairs and Boynton Beach Club. Seidelman was the director of the pilot of the iconic television series Sex and the City, and went on to direct future episodes.
 
Her latest film, The Hot Flashes Movie starring Brooke Shields, Darryl Hannah, Wanda Sykes, Camryn Manheim, Virginia Madsen and Eric Roberts opened Friday.
