A family travel to the French capital for business. The party includes a young engaged couple who are forced to confront their differing views of a perfect life.This was to be a buddy review with Suey from It's All About Books, but my day got away from me and I am just getting around to posting now. We watched the movie together and chatted on Twitter. It was fun! It was a really good movie, too.
What was your favorite scene from the movie?
There were many. Every time I recognized a 'real life' character I got a bit excited. The painters I had a hard time with, but the literary connections I usually made right away. Sometimes it would be just a matter of looking up the painters and that would connect with me, too. Otherwise, I just enjoyed the whole time he spent in the past. Paris is a wonderful place now, but the history is wonderful and I think this movie captured it very well.
How do you feel the famous literary/artistic characters were portrayed?
I loved their additions. For the ones that I knew they really seemed like my impressions of them. I thought that the actress that played Zelda Fitzgerald was wonderful! Ernest Hemingway was really good, too. The painters I don't have enough of an impression of to really make an opinion.
Did Gil make the right choice? (I guess this is quite a spoilery question!)
hm, well, I will be a bit un-spoilery I will just say YES!
