"The Lovely Bones" and "Paris" trailers
I've read Alice Sebold's novel twice and still have considerable affection for it; based on the trailer for Peter Jackson's movie version, I'm afraid he's lost Sebold's delicate tone. Not surprising, just disappointing. The new Cédric Klapisch film, Paris, looks like more of the same from the talented French writer-director, but I loved L'Auberge Espagnole and liked Russian Dolls, so I'll go. Wish Kate and Angela were in town to see it with me.
