My tried and true way to deal was to vanish...

I just finished watching Quills and wow. It's really good.

Nothing like I had expected, though I didn't quite know what to expect (I hadn't read the synopsis before watching). So I had a vague idea that it was about a writer and had a really good cast (Geoffrey Rush, Kate Winslet, Joaquin Phoenix, Michael Caine).

By the way, I love Kate Winslet. She's phenomenal. And I love her American Express commercial. Quite brilliant as well.

And now, I need a shower, and to watch a movie that will take my mind entirely off Quills. Because dear god, there is no happy ending there.

It should be noted that, regrettably, Quills employs the technique of playing French characters with British accents. This is certainly a downside and something that bothers me (and Zoe) greatly. Is it really that hard to do a French accent?
