THR's Women in Entertainment 2012: Power 100
Lichter, 61, is queen attorney on the indie film scene, and nothing proved this more than the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. There, the mother of three grown children found herself with the good fortune of representing filmmakers behind arguably the three biggest breakout hits: Beasts of the Southern Wild, Arbitrage and The Queen of Versailles. Lichter also is active on behalf of Democratic causes.
When strangers are confused about what I do: I tell them I help artists get paid and stay protected.
My indulgence: I'm a fantastic eBay buyer of weird shit, like the Frank Gehry chair made from cardboard I just bought.
Can't get through my workday without: Checking blogs. During the election, I was obsessed with projections on 538, Princeton and Daily Kos.
Totally starstruck around: Bob Dylan, always my hero, and Rachel Maddow. And now Nate Silver -- he's my boyfriend.
Best advice I've ever gotten: Get to know people before you need them.
