The Miami Film Festival toasts a native who made good big time

Keener  Here's a little-known fact: The awesomely talented actress Catherine Keener was born and raised in Hialeah. Just knowing that immediately makes The 40 Year-Old Virgin and Being John Malkovich seem even cooler. 

Keener will be at the Gusman Theater at 7 p.m. tonight with her frequent director/collaborator Nicole Holofcener for a festival screening of their latest movie, Please Give, which Connie Ogle has seen and is raving about.

Before the film, Hialeah mayor Julio Robaina will join the stars onstage to present the actress with a proclamation making today "Catherine Keener Day" in Hialeah. Keeners represent!
