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!!
