Irony night. We headed to the show, with love actually and Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World on the radar. I was leaning Russell Crowe, Catherine leaned Hugh Grant.
But the timing worked out better for love actually, so that’s what we saw. The irony: Catherine found it complicated and slow and ultimately unsatisfying. Me? I cried three or four times, and thought it an almost perfectly constructed romantic comedy.
Who knows what this bodes for next week.
Additional note from this movie: the actors who are roughly the same age as me, give or take: Colin Firth, Hugh Grant, and Laura Linney. I could have sworn I was the same age as Keira Knightley, but apparently I am, literally, old enough to be her father, as I was the age she is now only 2 years before she was born. Getting older has a way of sneaking up on you.
