|Three of my faves: Frances McDormand, Amy Adams, & Shirley Henderson|
Amy Adams is superb, and sexy as all get-out, of course, as an aspiring American actress, lounging in bubble baths, and traipsing round the flat in lingerie. And, they give her a chance to sing, too. But my favorite acting moments are Frances McDormand eating those cucumber slices -- she is so desperately hungry! -- and Shirley Henderson's awkwardly attractive walk towards her friends, wanting to show off her new engagement ring.
Plus, the film has a couple of my other fave actors: Mark Strong, and Ciarán Hinds.
Miss Pettigrew might not be everybody's cup of tea, but it certainly hit the spot for me yesterday on a blisteringly hot and gorgeous day and a wonderful home date w/ the Wife.
But, then in honor of our new kitty, Eleanor (Nora Charles), I watched The Thin Man after my Sweetie fell asleep:
All my love,
