More International Development RomComs, Please!

At this very moment I am 41 minutes into The Girl in the Cafe on HBO, and it is GREAT!

Yahoo News agrees.

Lead actress Kelly Macdonald is hott. And hotter still? The G8! That’s right, this movie is set at a G8 summit!!

Seriously, this movie is really subtle and smart, on all levels. Love it.

Update, 53 minutes: Okay, it just got a little preachy. But only a little. It’s still great.

Update, 77 minutes: Okay, hella preachy. Not necessary. Could have gotten point across without sermon scene. Fact that Kelly Macdonald is delivering sermon not helpful. Well, actually it is a little.

How can a movie so absorbing that it’s driven you to blog be any good?

Please. Welcome to the new age of media. Courtesy alone stopped me from busting open my laptop and blogging Batman Begins LIVE from the Metreon.

OMG. I would pay you to do that from another major premier. That would be awesome. Live movie reviews!

So the trick is to get there early and sit in the extreme back. Normally this would be awful, but at the Metreon it might actually work, no? The screen is just that big. I think you can get little shild things to clip onto your laptop screen such that people on your sides can’t see what you’re typing and the light won’t bug them as much. The typing noise might be a bit of an issue though. RAZR-style precision cut keyboards now!
