02/03 UMS Fall Season

,

The morning she was murdered,
Silberling found a loving message she'd
left on his answering machine. It was
the last time he heard her voice. Within
a few hours, he was sequestered in a
room at Cedars-Sinai Hospital, waiting
for her parents to identify the body.
Though he'd met them just a few times
previously, he bonded with them during
such activities as cleaning out Schaeffer's
apartment, while tabloid reporters
slapped $50 bilk on the windows.
The director discovered that Schaeffer's
father, Benson, a child psychologist, had
interrupted his lucrative practice for a
time to study Yiddish theater.
Her mother, Danna, a wickedly
honest, salty-tongued writer, told
Silberling, "Of course, I'd like you to
remain celibate for the rest of your
life, but we can negotiate that."
(Sarandon says that line in the film.)
The three became inseparable when
Silberling moved into his girlfriend's old
room for several weeks after the funeral.
"I needed to be there partly because
when all three of us were together,
Rebecca was present," he says. 'And I
remember thinking, 'It's wild, but
we're kind of this weird new family
and I can see never leaving.'
"But at the same time, I was aware
of the people tugging at my sleeve say-
ing, 'You know, you're it for them
now. You are Rebecca for them
because she was an only child. So any
time you can hang with her parents
would be really good."'
Silberlin.g says he brought those con-
flicting sentiments to the character of
Joe as well as "the swirl of emotions
over, 'How do you dare connect with
another [woman.]?'''
In real life, the Schaeffers were sup-
portive when Silberling finally began
dating again around 1991. They
attended his 1995 marriage to actress
Amy Brenneman (TV's Judging Amy),
when the bride and groom read a trib-
ute to Schaeffer. (The couple now
have a 1-year-old daughter, Charlotte.)
The Schaeffers were the first people
Silberling allowed to read a draft of
Moonlight Mile.
"I was nervous, but they liked it,"
says the director, who recently traveled
to Oregon to show them the complet-
ed film. "The screening was a [devas-
tating] wipeout and an emotional high
at the same time.
"I think they feel proud of the jour-
ney they've taken, and so do I." ❑
