COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY WITH SYNOPSIS

Editing (feature film)

1.
Door in the Floor, The (2004) as Supervising Dialogue Editor
Set in the beach community of East Hampton, New York, one pivotal summer in the lives of famous children's books author Ted Cole and his beautiful wife Marion is chronicled. Their once-great marriage has been strained by tragedy. The Coles lovingly parent their surviving child, bright 4-year-old Ruth, who takes everything in stride as perhaps only a child can. But Marion's equation of love with loss, coupled with Ted's infidelities, points towards a much-needed change in the relationship. That may come in the form of Eddie O'Hare, the young man Ted hires to work as his summer assistant--and, Ted hopes, the catalyst to invigorate the Coles' bond of marriage. Eddie idolizes Ted, but Ted's erratic work habits soon leave Eddie to his own devices. Marion becomes an object of desire for Eddie, rekindling in her some surprising emotions as a mother and as a woman. To Eddie's surprise and delight, his yearning is potently reciprocated. As he becomes passionately entwined with the seemingly fragile yet increasingly bold Marion, Eddie comes to realize that, similarly, Ted's surface fecklessness hides something deeper within. As the summer draws to a close, Marion and Ted must make difficult decisions about the future of their family.

A young, aggressive and talented thief, Jack needs Nick's safe-cracking talents to make his first big score: a prize worth millions locked behind the walls of Montreal's Custom's House.

For backup, Shaft has only his two closest pals: Carmen, a colleague on the police force; and his streetwise confidant, Rasaan.

Donna is a folk-rock singer who is eeking out a living performing in lounges in Juneau, Alaska. She still dreams of "making it," but she carries a lot of baggage with her -- namely Noelle, her resentful teenage daughter from a previous marriage who buries her brilliant writing potential beneath layers of anger, angst and a habit of self-mutilation. Joe is a weather-beaten, ex-fisherman who can't go near the water due to a freak boating accident he was involved in 25 years ago that left two women dead.
