We went out to see Winter's Tale this morning. I haven't read the book that it is based on, but after seeing the movie, it is now on my must read list. I wish I had the words to describe how beautiful the movie is--and not just visually--but I don't (I guess that's why we have authors). Maybe one reason I am impressed is that this is something that Hollywood hasn't tackled much: the urban fantasy, so it's not quite like anything else (I'm trying to think of another urban fantasy movie, but am drawing a blank. Don't site vampire or zombie movies, please; those come under the heading of, well, vampire and zombie movies--whole different critters).


Anyway, here are my reasons to see Winter's Tale:

Visually gorgeous
Lovely story
Wonderful acting
Russell Crowe as a demon
Score by Hans Zimmer
Flying horse with wings made of light
Jessica Brown Findlay
We were both weeping a bit at the end (and for me, a part of that was, well, it was over).


Why you should see it soon if you want to see it at the theater:

Nobody farts and nothing blows up, so it probably won't be there long.
