When speaking about Lemonade Stand Tropfest Founder and Director, John Polson said,

“Lemonade Stand is an incredibly well made film and a favourite amongst the judges. There was intense discussion in the judging room, and some really interesting debates. Alethia should be very proud to have been selected by some of the industry’s greatest talent.”

“短片电影节是许多年轻人的电影梦想开始的地方,这也是它最吸引人之处。不过,我现在没有太多精力去演戏,家里有一个一岁的还有一个三岁的俩娃娃“拖后腿”,让我都忙不过来了。”妮可基德曼说道。
