Hail, the unrequited Love[r]
Discussions over at my OPAC, LibraryThing.com, brought this upcoming movie to my attention (it's now showing in the U.S.). I hope the screen version does not fail in terms of content, intent and production value. As we know, very few books-to-movies ever meet our expectations (a very subjective and touchy matter), and those that do, even exceed it. Shuffling between meetings the other day, I was asked if I would see Beowulf. I think I said I might, but would await Elizabeth instead. Well, both will have to move down my to-see list, and give way to a movie that's closer to home, heart and sensibilities: Garcia Marquez' Love in the Time of Cholera. I'm excited.
