It reminded me a bit of "Moulin Rouge." Very artsy. Not a lot of sympathy for the main character ~ basically a whiny, womanizing, writer/director who is having trouble coming up with a script for his current movie. A married man who sleeps or tries to sleep with every woman in the movie. There were some fantastic women in the movie. Nicole Kidman, Judi Dench, Fergie, Penelope Cruz, Sofia Loren and Kate Hudson. His wife is played by Marion Cotillard who I've not heard of before but she was great in this movie. The sound track is fantastic as are the costumes. I guess it's just not my cup of tea, but really well done for what it was.
We had a good time having movie day though. We microwaved some popcorn, got some twizzlers (red vines which are NOT the same and don't taste very good at all) & chocolate and soda, of course. Excuse the mess on the couch ~ I was going through a bunch of fabric scraps for my next project!
We did also rent "Sherlock Holmes" which we watched tonight with Richard and while I thought it was going to be good ~ it was FANTASTIC. Really, really enjoyable!
