Janet Pierson @ 50

Wife, mother, blogger, and Grainy Pictures co-president Janet Pierson celebrated her 50th birthday on Monday night with an intimate dinner at Austin Tex-Mex restaurant El Chile:

Smith (the director of such acclaimed docs as American Movie and The Yes Men) was in town for Janet’s birthday as well as a speaking engagement at John’s UT film class. He and Noble are also making some tweaks on their amazing, brilliant Sundance award-winner, The Pool. Keep your eyes peeled for that one, later this year. It’s exceptional.
