Emily Liebert's "When We Fall"

Emily Liebert is an award-​winning author, New York Times bestselling editor, and TV personality. Her books Facebook Fairytales and You Knew Me When are available across the globe. Liebert is a graduate of Smith College and lives in Connecticut with her husband and their two sons.

Here she dreamcasts an adaptation of her new novel, When We Fall:
This is the dream, right? Having your book turned into a movie (I’ll take TV too!). While I’d love to say I haven’t given this hours of thought—specifically when I can’t sleep in the middle of the night—that would be a big fat lie! So, here goes. Charlotte and Allison are the main characters in When We Fall, so I’d love to see two strong actresses play those roles. I’d have to say Natalie Portman for Allison. To me, they both embody beauty and grace, inside and out. For Charlotte, Amy Adams all the way. Charlotte’s a convoluted personality and I think Amy could portray that in the truest light. Emily Blunt would make a fabulous Elizabeth (Charlotte’s sister). For that role, you need someone who can do snarky well and that’s Emily Blunt! In the way of the men. For Charlotte’s husband Charlie I’ll go with Bradley Cooper, because I love him! And for Dempsey, James Marsden, because he’s exactly what I picture when I think of that character and he’s so swoon worthy! Believe me, I could go on and list someone for every single character right down to the waitress in the diner scene, but I’ll spare everyone. Now, as far as who would direct. I’ll take the brother sister team of Gary and Penny Marshall!
