Impressed by the on-screen work of Daniel Craig, Amy McCorkle created a blog to do what she couldn't do personally: share her life with him.

A self-described fangirl, Amy is a prolific writer of novels, novellas, short stories and screenplays. Her work has won awards and received recognition from several venues. Some would envy her success but Amy suffers from bipolar disorder and doesn't always appreciate how people react to her work.

"Letters to Daniel" is a window into the mind of a woman learning how to deal with her psychological problems and her healing process from an abusive family history. It is an inspiring story describing how Amy grows to know who she is and finds out how to handle her life.

The blog has obviously been therapy for Amy, probably more successfully than any psychologist could ever be. She uses the blog as she would a dear confidant and the documentary lets you hear it in her voice, something you won't get from the blog itself.

"I wonder if I'll ever meet my heroes" she says. My opinion is she should look in the mirror.
