Second, I never read "The Golden Compass" (though I heard excellent buzz about it). I wasn't overly interested in the movie version until I saw that Daniel Craig would be starring, and looking mighty fine: Oy, those eyes!
Third, while tooling around Fandango, I discovered a quarky new British film with the lovely and talented Matthew Macfadyen called Death at a Funeral. Synopsis: "A dysfunctional British family gathers for the patriarch's funeral. Tensions rise, old conflicts are uncovered, and when a man arrives saying he's the dead man's gay lover and threatens blackmail, drastic measures are taken."
Needless to say, I believe hilarity will ensue!
And now...I need to get back to retooling my script. I have 20 pages to write in two days...EEP!
