I have not seen it yet, but am hoping to soon. I read the book a couple of years ago and really liked it.

Libby said...

Oh, I can't wait to see this!

I heard there has been quite the to-do made over a green dress that she wears, did you notice it?

Meg said...

Libby, I actually did notice it, though I'm not sure I know what the to-do is. It caught my eye because it is so much like the dress that was described in the book, and I was (pleasantly) surprised to see that they stayed so true to the story - with the dress as well as almost everything else - in the picture.

Jenny - We read it in my book club last fall and I went to see it with a couple of book clubbers. We all loved it. The house, the grounds, the casting - it is just as I had imagined after reading the book. I think the story is almost more moving and heavier when you see it in action...especially the scenes in France. Hope you enjoy!

I also can't wait to see this! And now I'll pay special attention to the green dress...

So glad to hear you had a nice evening out.

Let us know tomorrow! I love her and so want to see it- but then again I have been trying to get to the flicks for over a year.

Enjoy and I miss you Meg!

I'm glad you enjoyed it--I did too. There was an interesting article in the New York Times home section about the woman who inhereted the house in which the movie was filmed.

I also thought the white Edith Head bathing suit was amazing--and Kira Knieghtly in it was lovely as well. It's nice to see an actress who doesn't have a surgically enahanced body appear so completely comfortable with herself.
