Norma Khouri, reports The Australian, didn't show for the premiere of the film about her, Forbidden Lie$. Event managers have labelled it "A real-life literary thriller."

And there's no mention of it in The Advertiser, the Adelaide tabloid.

But she sent a series of e-mails to The Australian, which the broadsheet does not publish in their entirety. The U.S. citizen does not agree with everything contained in the film, it seems.

Filmmaker Anna Broinowski apparently "had a full house for the premiere". Despite this, the lack of Australian news coverage suggests that yesterday's announcement of the Oscar winners has completely overshadowed the local item.

There may be something on the TV news tonight but I'm going to attend a public lecture at the Seymour Centre, so I'll miss whatever transpires.
