Kudos & congrats to John Silveira

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

If you read either Dave Duffy’s blog or Oliver Del Signore’s, you probably already know the saga of BHM senior editor John Silveira and his oddball classified ad. The ad, which appeared in BHM in 1997, became first an Internet meme and recently the basis of a movie, Safety Not Guaranteed.

The film — a sort of sci-fi romantic comedy, I gather — premiered at Sundance last weekend to huge anticipation, sold-out houses, and critical raves. John was there and even earned himself a mention in some reviews. (Dave says John got applause from the audience, too.)

The movie was nominated for the Grand Jury prize (the big one) and though it didn’t win that, it did get a writing award and is sure to get a distribution deal. Although has just three reviews as of tonight (which ain’t bad for a film not officially available yet), they’re all glowingly positive.

So nice going, John Silveira. I always knew you were a star.

Now I can’t wait to see this thing!
