Finally got to see 'Everything Is Illuminated' yesterday. We had to go to Oxford which meant almost a two hour drive there and nearly three hours back because of traffic hold-ups. I expect it will now suddenly turn up in Birmingham but I just couldn't risk it!! And it was well worth all the trouble. A beautiful, sensitive film - hilariously funny in parts, extremely sad in others. Elijah was perfect in the role - oh my God, that very first shot where he seems to be looking at you - words fail me!! But everyone in it was brilliant, including the dog!! My only complaint - it seemed to be over much too soon. I know it always feels like that when you're enjoying something, but I really couldn't believe it when I suddenly realised we were coming to the end. There were only about 5 other people in the cinema but I suppose as it was the 1.15pm showing on a week day thats not too surprising. Hubby said he quite enjoyed it (he's never very forthcoming about films) - he certainly laughed out loud at the funny parts:)

In other news, look what bunniewabbit found - the first pic from "Bobby". I expect most will already have seen this, but couldn't risk anyone missing Lij looking so drop-dead gorgeous in his white tux!!

Thats always been a mystery to me - how do people manage to concentrate on their own acting when they're with him? I'd have thought it was impossible!!

Same here. Whether you're acting opposite Elijah, interviewing him, waiting on him in Starbucks.....whatever. How can you think straight when he's looking at you. Everyone who's looked into his eyes posts about how struck dumb they are.

Glad you got to see EII and loved it. It will be the DVD for me, unfortunately, but better that than nothing. At least I got to see Green Street Hooligans on the big screen.

"Everyone who's looked into his eyes posts about how struck dumb they are."

That was certainly the case with me the first time I met him - I'd planned what I intended to say, but confronted by that sight I only managed a few strangulated sounds:)

Sorry you won't get to see EII on the big screen - but hurray for dvd's - whoever invented them should be canonised!!

Indeed....and the person who perfected "pause" and "slow motion" should be canonised as well. A great blessing for Elijah fans. O_O :>D

Ha ha, you're right there!! I am relieved I got to see that film, for a nasty moment I thought I'd just have to wait for the dvd.

Isn't he beautiful?? And SO era appropriate with those sideburns.

:)

But isn't it funny how everything "retro" looks so "now"?

He is extremely beautiful. I guess this film is the reason he's been cultivating those sideburns - and they do look just right for that time. Unfortunately, I'm old enough to remember 'that time' quite clearly:(

Is EII getting good reviews in the UK?

Quite mixed reviews - but I'd say the good outweigh the bad:)

I'm so glad that you got to see the film, and thank you for your review. And I must thank you for re-posting the picture. I'd seen it, but it's very welcome here. He has the most perfect bone structure, and the hairstyle certainly suits him, along with that elegant white tux.

Well, not exactly a 'review' I'm afraid, just a couple of observations. I'm really not too good at writing reviews so I leave it to those who can - I mean here in LJ land, of course, not the critics!! I love that hairstyle too - I always think his hair looks its best when its brushed forward like that, he has the right forehead for it:)

Found out today that I should get to see EII in February! Better late than never!

*two fingers up to arsehole cinemas in Cardiff who are not screening it*

In February? Where will it be showing? I had heard that it may be a rolling release, as it was in the US, but didn't think it would still be around in Feb. I couldn't believe it when I realised it wasn't showing anywhere in the West Midlands!!

It will be shown at the Chapter Arts Center... which as it says is an art center, but it does have a darn good cinema within its walls.

So much is written about his eyes and his overall gorgeous face, but he has a stunning profile, too, don't you think?

I'm glad you got to see that; it's such a wonderful movie - and I went twice. Something I seldom do. Not any chance, though, of Hooligans coming around here - that'll be DVD.

And I'm certain that I will *never* have too much of that pic!

It is a lovely movie - perhaps if it does eventually turn up in Birmingham I might get to see it on the big screen again. Thats a a pity about Hooligans - I really enjoyed that too.

Yes, that pic is amazing - I keep going back to it!!

Oh, I´m so glad to see EII, finally, at least you, Paulie! Although Liev promised EII is going to release in Czech rep., I have no news about date...EII will be for me only on DVD and maybe only from UK.

And the first pic from Bobby...yesterday I opened elijahwoodnow website with www link and I almost died from his beauty and fragility. It really hit me! :-)I was realy needed to see his new pic...
Thanx for sharing!
