He looks like Hachi.  I've only seen the trailer and it makes me cry already.

Better the second time around

It was extra sweet to watch the DVD of Bright Star at home yesterday because when I saw it in the theater I had rushed to a matinee of it on opening day, only to realize that who attends matinees are mostly old (older than me) women and oh my gosh, they like to TALK through the whole film.  When shushed by some of us, they just whispered loudly!  It was so annoying to hear "oh isn't that beautiful" after every scenic shot, but ultimately comical when one of them said to the other: "I don't know how to tell you this, but he dies".   (Everyone knows Keats dies young, so I'm not spoiling it for you).  It was a bit like watching the movie AND an SNL skit with Kristen Wig at the same time.   So this second time I enjoyed every beautiful/tragic scene complete with costumes and harpsichords, ALONE.  It was marvelous hearing director Jane Campion talk about the unexpected field of blue flowers that appeared on the estate where they filmed and ended up as this scene below:

This time it was from my dental hygienist.  Thanks, Stacy for this book.  Here's the audio interview on NPR,  and a very short video of her.

This house

is so photogenic.  I've posted it before.  It's very Grey Gardens.  I wonder who lives here?

Pretty lamp post

Black Narcissus

The dvd includes a wonderful extra called "Painting With Light" about how they filmed it all on a lot in England, and in Technicolor, apparently a very big deal back then.  Thx to Roger Ebert for the recommendation.

This guy looks so comfortable in his jeans...oh, we are such unhappy hipsters :)

Enjoying the new bag:

Look at this great bag from Clare Vivier.  The leather is gorgeous.   Check out Clare's blog, and here's a pic of how the tote can be used as a clutch as well!
