Same cloche hat (and same expression) in gloomier lighting, after the cut.
These are way old.
Uh. I realize this is probably a very safe bet come oscar time, but I am just not feeling it.
and by the way, AwardsDaily staff, I don’t know what kind of advertising deal you have with whatever company manages it, but for the last week or so, I am getting VERY ANNOYING ads on your homepage for MSN emoticons – the sound is on continuous loop and is very LOUD. This happens on all visits and I stopped coming here as often
The same thing happened with CHUD.com for me about 2 months ago – they had an ad on their mainpage that had this very annoying – also on an infinite loop – of a mobile phone soccer game – and I just had to stop visiting that website
Anyway, kisses and hugs all around
Yeah, they’re old, but they’re kinda pretty anyway.
Is it the cloche hat that keeps landing this film on Costume Design prediction lists?
Something about this film isn’t quite getting me fired up to see it – though I sense it’s very worthy and nutritious.
I find myself looking a lot more excited for Eastwood’s other project, Gran Torino, than this movie. The subject matter and Jolie just don’t interest me here.
‘worthy and nutritious’
ha ha guy lodge! ha ha!
I think this one is sorta the Cinderella Man of 2008.
I agree. Even though I have a friend who saw it at Cannes, and who assures me it and Angelina were great, I just can’t bring myself to be enthusiastic about this film.
Maybe it’s because Angelina will always be a movie star first, and that I’ll have a hard time believing her as Christine Collins. We’ll see.
say it with me…meh
I’m actually so pumped for The Changeling, and I think Angelina might have landed herself the role that will really manage to break her out of previous labels.
With two Eastwood movies being released, the only question left to ask is: Which one will be the biggest of the year (Well, obviously that’s a bit of a hyperbole, but you have to admit that very well may end up being what we’re going to ask eventually)?
I’m very excited about Changeling because I loved Eastwood’s last female-driven movie and I am one of the few who believe that Angelina is very very talented. I even gave her my award for Best Actress last year.
What I like most about Changeling (aside from its director) is that this film gives Angelina a role she can really get her teeth into. The second is that the story starts small & then ripples outward. As Geoff Andrew, writing in this month’s Sight & Sound, says of Changeling;
‘J. Michael Straczynski’s deft script and Eastwood’s measured, quietly meticulous mise en scene manage to fashion (many) disparate elements into a complex, multi-stranded but entirely coherent drama … What’s possibly most impressive is the way Eastwood makes it all look so easy; as the story steadily grows broader and deeper in its import, it still feels like a damned good yarn.’
ADD kiddies won’t have the slightest interest in Eastwood’s movie. But for grown ups fed up with what the youth demographic has done to their idea of movies, Changeling sounds like manna from heaven. Personally, I can’t wait to see it.
