I enjoyed this film, though I accept its biased. Its particularly interesting from a writers perspective as it is penned by Aaron Sorkin, known by most for the West Wing. I’ve tried a few times to get into his stuff, but his one voice fits all and its smarter than everyone else always kind of irked me. In the time honoured tradition of film the writer’s voice was subsumed by the directors, but in this instance it worked. It allowed the individuality of the actor – for which we can read character – to bleed through and shape the words. So the clever words, especially given the idea that these are very clever boys, worked to enhance rather than drown the emotion.

I suppose I should introduce myself. My name is not Mary Kate, but for here and now, for our mutual purposes.. that is you and I.. it is as good as any other. Perhaps I am hoping something of her odd character will rub off on me. She would be considerably better at this than I. So just another wannabe.. recommended by all known associates of the same surname and soon to be available at an amazon near you? Not quite, well actually it feels like, not even close, but I could regret those words.. I have too many, words that is, constantly clogging my head up. This may thin them out. Despite the disclaimer I will likely always be a writer and for a long time I was quite sure I would like to be a storyteller for a living. I just never thought it would be quite so public. I was nine when the Eureka moment hit me, right after an adventure with Four and Kiki the parrot. I never thought to question it even once after that, until 50 Shades happened. All of a sudden the game changed and I'm not allowed to be socially stunted with dubious hygiene anymore (not that I am but I would like the option. Believe me?) Anyway here's my dirty laundry.. please use a softener, I'm a delicate soul.. View all posts by marykate77
