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!!

Isn't he???!!! I don't think I could have acted at all if I was Lindsay Lohan, I'd just have stood there with my jaw on the floor, in a puddle of drool... klajsdlfkhaslgsajhdfalkshdf!!!

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!!

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:)

He's stunning! His expression, his lashes, his mouth... even the bones of his face are beautiful!:) Thank you for posting this pic!

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!!

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!
A.
