The sceptical part of me thinks that…
Matthew Goode is hijacking too many movies on my watchlist lately ;-P I can’t say I dislike him exactly, but there’s something about him that does put me off a bit…
Having said this, he is the only thing about this movie that I have mixed feelings about. Everything else says “Watch it now!” lol And who knows… maybe Matthew Goode is the right person for this movie?

The excited part of me thinks that…
I’ve been looking forward to this ever since I first heard of the project which was a year or two ago I think. At that time the only person attached to it was Colin Firth and little was known about the film. The basic plot was interesting enough though and Colin Firth just seemed like the perfect person to cast in something like this.
What I didn’t anticipate was that it would be a major winner at the Venice Film Festival! *grin* For me the Venice and Toronto film festivals are ones I particularly trust, so this is really thrilling! And also the trailer just looks amazing! Can’t wait to see this, why doesn’t it have any release dates yet :-/
