The Night Listener

I'm dearly hoping we get to see The Night Listener tonight. It's showing at the Vue Cinema, Ocean Terminal, Edinburgh.

I've not read the book, but being a huge fan of the (small) screen adaptations of the Tales Of The City series, this film, developed from the book by Armistead Maupin, is an absolute must.

A big bonus for me:

It stars Bobby Cannavale (the hot cop from Will And Grace) and my favourite actress of the moment, Miss Toni Collette.

I've great expectations of this film and will report back if and when I get to see it.

I'd also like to see The Queen and Little Miss Sunshine, but Rome wasn't built in a day. Only now am I confident enough to go out of an evening and not fall asleep. Jet lag is a killer.

I saw Little Miss Sunshine recently. It's fun. Totally worth whatever you pay for the last 15 minutes.

I hope we get to see it very soon, perhaps tomorrow, Brian.

The Night Listener was a good movie. Made me think a lot. Not necessarily about the story, but lots of side issues. I think about witers, what it means for them to be a writer and how some want to be writers, not because they want to tell a story, but because they long for notoriety and attention. It was a great film. Everyone should see it. Tell them Minge sent you.
