At least we have free healthcare.
Although I think my jaw’s a little too wide.
Yeah, I know I live in the LBGTQ Capital of Great Britain and all but, I have not seen so many gay people in one cinema since I went to see Mamma Mia! a couple of years ago.
I really enjoyed the film. I know there has been a lot of debate over the film, about the whole ‘Lesbian Sleeps with man blah blah blah’ thing, and I admit, that did bug me a little bit, but I think you have to look pass that.
Nic & Jules (played by Annette Benning and Julianne Moore) I thought were a very honest portrayal of a married couple. These characters reminded me (uncomfortably, perhaps) of a lot of married couples that I know, of whatever gender/sexuality blah. I thought it was incredibly realistic. In Nic and Jules, I saw people who I recognised and knew, and I found that almost unsettling. A little bit too close to the skin. Which was why I though it was brilliant. You could really believe the characters, how they felt, way they behaved the way they did.
I just wanted to put that out there. I think this film will probably always split people, but I think it was very well done.
Also, long term fan of Josh Hutcherson, saw him in Bridge To Terabithia a few years ago, very very good actor.
Oh, and Mia Wasikowska is absolutely adorable.
Oh, and just one more thing - Before the film, there was an advert for Ikea: Starring an array of adorable little felines. Kittens. Seriously. Ikea and Kittens. Before a film about a lesbian couple. Really.
Ooooh and One Last Final Thing (for real) - LOVED that Joni had an Uh Huh Her poster. Nice touch.

I feel like there was a bit of a ‘Target Audience’ confusion.
*What? I’m small, okaay.
(those are chistmas trees, btw, that are growing)
Why must you do this to me, little one?
Weirdest Father-Daughter bonding trip EVER.
