The Company We Keep
Once upon a time, a nerdy gal from the Bronx had her sights set on a career in law and went out to the country for a spell to live and go to school.
That school was – and is – the country’s premiere boarding institution for girls, Miss Porter’s School, in Farmington, CT. Yes, that one. Attended by the likes of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Gloria Vanderbilt and Agnes Gund, to name a few.
Farmington is a stoic suburban town in central Connecticut, about as polar opposite from the central Bronx as one might imagine. How did Shakima Landsmark get there, how did she deal, and how did it change her life?
Inside this charismatic screenwriter and filmmaker, whom I’d met recently because of her amazing hair, is a woman who has always maintained a strong sense of self, appreciated her smarts, and valued her intuition.
Forever inspired and always creating, she’s currently writing a script for an upcoming production. Shakima Landsmark. Remember her name.
