    The trailer looks pretty interesting, but I betcha the actual movie will have lots of slow boring scenes.

    Old movie. GREAT!!!! Think I was still in grad school when I saw it - that's how long ago.

    ...and the movie score by my favorite composer, Philip Glass, is... well... adequate. I guess he's still my favorite composer though.
    This week I also bought the score to another great movie "A Beautiful Mind." The music was by James Horner and is wonderful... and very Philip Glass like.

    The 2007 Academy Awards recognized both Judi Dench and Cate Blanchett for their AMAZING performances (though they both rightly lost to Helen Mirren for The Queen and to Jennifer Hudson in Dreamgirls). Bill Nighy was robbed by not being nominated for his performance as well. And one wonders when the two principal actors in a movie are nominated but the director isn't. Richard Eyre was also robbed.

    For the record, "What Was She Thinking: Notes on a Scandal" the novel by Zoe Heller on which this movie was based was even better. She is the incredibly talented daughter of the amazing screenwriter Lukas Heller. She's obviously inherited his ability to tell a tale.
