Cara Silverman, Film Editor of Romantic Comedies, Dies at 54

Some of the highlights of her career were Parker Posey launcher “Party Girl,” gay tale “Jeffrey,” “Permanent Midnight,” HBO series “Tell Me You Love Me,” Shana Feste’s “The Greatest” and “Super,” with Rainn Wilson, Liv Tyler and Ellen Page.

Silverman had been quite busy in 2014, editing the USA Network telepic “Divide & Conquer,” with Diane Farr; the musical romantic comedy “There’s Always Woodstock,” starring Katey Segal, Brittany Snow, Jason Ritter and Rumer Willis; an episode of ABC miniseries “The Assets”; and finally “Songbyrd,” the pilot of a series from Universal that did not get picked up.
