"Harriette Yahr is a great champion of talent. Her empathy, heart and hard advice is invaluable. I worked with her on early drafts of my recent screenplay (The Most Famous Woman in the World) and found her feedback extremely helpful. Not only is she a pro at screenwriting and filmmaking, but more importantly she’s a lovely human being."
