This afternoon we finally got to see 'our film'!!! I believe it was rather good - I say 'believe' because it is very difficult for me to judge any film that Elijah is in - just the fact that he is in it elevates a film to the highest echelons of filmdom!!! But yes, I am confident that it was a good film. And Elijah was absolutely perfect in the role. I really hope that every Elijah fan will get a chance to see this on the big screen at least once because he is just so heart-meltingly gorgeous in it:)

It's really a very strange feeling going to the cinema, as we have so many times before, only this time knowing that we'll actually be in it!! Apart from hubby's moment of glory which I mentioned before - when John stops next to him , we saw ourselves several times in the lecture scene - quite clearly but thankfully not too close up!! Although I've spotted us many times in various video clips - seeing it like that on the big screen really made me feel I was back there again, sitting just four rows in front of Elijah!!

Wasn't it totally surreal, seeing yourself on screen!! As soon as John started talking, i was instantly back there..Harrow, February 13/14th 2007.. *sigh*

I really hope that every Elijah fan will get a chance to see this on the big screen at least once because he is just so heart-meltingly gorgeous in it:)

Isn't he just!! I too think it was a good film, but i really can't judge fairly.. though my non-Elijah-fan friend really enjoyed it, so that's good news. All i seem to want to do was drink in every single second he was on the screen..

Yes, that is a good sign:)

Same here - there was never much hope of my following the plot - I was too distracted by the beauty!!

How awesome to be able to see the film and especially yourself in the film! I bet it felt kind of surreal. Even though it's not the same thing or scenario, that was my experience when I saw the airing of a talk show I was on a few years ago. When I saw it, I immediately could recall everything at the taping that day.

It was the most surreal thing that's ever happened to me - being there in Harrow and then seeing it on screen!!

Yay! I'm so glad you got to see it and that you enjoyed it. :-) I'm sure it was surreal, but in a great way to see yourself and hubby.

I hope I get to see it at some point too. . .

Yes - it was totally surreal I do hope you'll get to see it soon.

Btw - completely off topic - but I read about your son's accident and kept meaning to leave a comment - I'm so ashamed I never got round to it:( I wish him a very speedy recovery:)

I can't even begin to imasgine what it must've been like to actually "work" with him!

I feel so blessed to have had an opportunity like that - I know I'll never forget it:)

And you're right - to see Elijah's beauty up there on the big screen is breathtaking. I really hope you'll get to see it - wasn't Alex over there at one point to promote the film, or am I getting mixed up?

How many times didn't we hear those lines last year ? Can we know the truth ? O yes, they will always take me back to those two special days.
I believe it is a rather good film too. One thing is for sure, Elijah is perfect as Martin.
How long before the DVD ? ;)

Many, many times - it really drove it home for me that day just how much hard work goes into the makinng of a film - for actors and crew.

And yes - Elijah was so perfect in the part. I can't wait for that dvd - there is only one drawback with watching a film in the cinema - you can't rewind and pause!!!

I'm very glad you enjoyed it and that you thought it a good film. My own attempt to see it on Friday in Bristol with my husband was abortive - we arrived at the cinema to find it SOLD OUT. I could have kicked myself; with all the poor reviews I had not thought I would need to book in adavance.

However, it has all turned out for the best as we are seeing it tonight in the company of some friends, one of whom I know is a closet Elijah fan.

I must look for you next time. I saw a few friends but I know I missed some. Elijah was PERFECT wasn't he? And the best I've ever seen him - truly a young man rather then the man/child he's tended to be.

This isn't very clear but I've circled us on this pic:

We do appear more clearly in the film. I know you can't see them from this pic but next to me was earths_daughter then Brian, husband of Carole from A&F, then Carol, bellewood and poplij

Oh, wonderful, Not Alone. This is very encouraging news. I scrolled down through the comments and almost squeed to hear it sold out somewhere. How wonderful not just that you liked it as a film (you *think*, lol), found EW on the big screen in it drool-worthy, and got to be reminded of what a unique and wonderful time you had working on it yourself, and seeing him at work.

I doubt it will play our small city when it is released in the U.S., but I am going to check when that release date is. I'm going out east to the Washington D.C. area next week for 12 days. That's a huge city with loads of theatres that show independent and smaller films. Maybe it will be playing there? I will certainly go if it is. You make me want to see it very much.

I really hope you get a chance to see it, Mechtild. I haven't heard anything so far about a US release date but I can't imagine that it won't be shown over there. The dvd is out in June, of course, but it's certainly worth a cinema viewing if possible:)

We weren't in it, but we thoroughly enjoyed the film! Chris isn't biased like me, but he thought it was excellent :-)

It must be exciting knowing that you were in it! I must look more closely for you and your hubby because we didn't spot you yesterday. I'd seen Brian, Carol and Bellewood, then Salwood and Trianne, and they kept drawing my eyes, so much so that I couldn't see anyone else although I knew that you and Lisabellex were there too.

Off for a second viewing soon!

I'm so glad to hear that Chris enjoyed it, Jane - a positive, unbiased opinion is always valuable.

I know you saw my reply to Mole's comment above so you now have an idea of where we were. There's a point when John is walking along that row and comes to a halt right next to Roger, who is wearing a light-coloured jacket. So, he (Roger) has now had his 15 seconds of fame!! Enjoy your second viewing - I know you will:)

Pauline, I'm so pleased you have finally seen 'your' film in its entirety, and that you enjoyed it so much. From the few clips I have seen online, Elijah does indeed look gorgeous as Martin.

I'm afraid I'll be waiting for the DVD, but I'm excited for you and hubby, (Bellewood, Poplij and all the other LJ'ers involved too) as you are now officially film stars! Has Roger started signing autographs yet?

Take care.

~ Blossom.

Sorry to hear you won't get to see the film in the cinema, Blossom - but at least it's not too long to wait for the dvd. As I said, I really don't trust myself to properly judge any filmm that Elijah is in - and he is in this so much, filling the screen with his gorgeousness - oh dear, I'm getting all poetic!!

Has Roger started signing autographs yet?

I've suggested that he offers himself for an appearance at London Film & ComiCon alongside John Hurt:D

Changing the subject - I'm sorry about the delay in sending the cd's - I spoke too soon when I said there didn't seem to be any problem:( I'm working on it and hope to be able to send them soon:)

How exciting - I can't even imagine seeing myself up on the big screen - and lots of Elijah loveliness as well!! I'm so glad you got to see it - sadly it's looking less and less like we'll get to see it here in the US. It sounds like a lot of the UK reviews haven't been good. I guess I should be grateful that I was able to see GSH and EII and PJT and Day Zero on the big screen when so many others weren't able to - but OM was the movie I've most wanted to see on the big screen because it has so much Elijah in such an adult role. And there's the famous spaghetti scene - and I've heard a shower scene as well!! I'm going to be SO upset if I don't get to see this on the big screen!!

I must say I'm quite relieved I didn't get a close-up - that would have been a bit too surreal!!

I really do hope it gets shown in the US - I want everyone to be able to see it, of course, but I'm also hoping that if it is Elijah might be on some more chat shows!! We can but hope - and at least there will be the dvd soon.
