stranger than fiction
Saw this last night with le husband and brothers-in-law, and rather loved it. I wasn't surprised about that; I knew that if Emma Thompson was involved I probably would (she's brilliant in this, btw). What I was surprised about was how much I loved the look of the film. Color was used throughout the film to set the scene and communicate the mood of the characters, and I rather liked it. I especially loved the spaces around Maggie Gyllenhall's character; they were full of warmth and color and clutter and life. It was lovely.
