Well at the moment, I'm sitting at my desk in my room with my mother on the phone downstairs with her 'Nice Voice' switched on while talking to a collegue at work. Outside, the weather is well...I know one word I could call it. Okay. I'll add stars....it looks sh*t. Grey clouds. No Sun. And actually it looks like it could chuck it down in a minute.
I myself? I am ill so as it's 2:30pm which I should technically be in my last lesson, Media right now, I thought I do a bit of work. not.
Ah. I could get used to this.
Anyways. Yesterday, I got my script for my last Unit of Drama. FINALLY. So...it's called Hard to Swallow and it's about a girl who suffers from Anorexia over the course of seven years. Yeah. Happy. I did want something serious though.
I've read through it and me and my group (including Joey (!) who plays the girl) have the lovely task of making a good play out of it in six weeks. Oh dear Lord. I am going to be so depressed over the next few weeks...
Though, I just found out, it's an adaptation of a book which was written by the real life character of my character, Maureen. Catherine (the girl)'s mother. And now I kind of want to read it. You know, get it first hand what it was like to be in that situation. So has anyone read or heard of ''Catherine: The story of a young girl who died of Anorexia'? It would be great if you did.
Anyway. MOVIE LONGING.
I have some movie longing at the moment as I told George. But first.
OH MY GOD. COLIN FIRTH WON BEST ACTOR AT THE BAFTAS. I watched it happen. I am so happy for him, not just because I love him as an actor and person, but still. He deserves it after all the things he's done. I hope he wins the Oscar too next week.
So here is my Movie Longing:
Okay. So I have actually seen this one already but my Mum wants to see it and I want to see it again because during the movie, I was so hungry, I was trying to see if I could steal piece of popcorn from George without her noticing while eating mine. She didn't notice for the couple of times I successfully stole. So my mother is my excuse to go.
Anyway. Who doesn't want to see Colin Firth again? I make my point.
Not at the top but I want to see this to see what happens. It looks good and well made and set in Brighton? Sounds good. And set in the 50's/60's? AH. I WANT TO SEE IT!
This guy << looks interesting too. I won't repeat what I thought when I saw the trailer before The King's Speech but anyway...
With The Black Swan. Everyone wants to see it. But well...i'm not sure. My friend saw it and they were a bit creeped out by it. Anyway, it sounds like I would be hiding from the screen before half way.
Words to not describe how much I would like to see this movie. I mean Gnomeo and Juliet? That sounds so great. I am already laughing at the trailer which I've seen twice now...hah. Some crazy Gnomes.
And Emily Blunt (Her in The Young Victoria - love her!) and James McAvoy....oh. oh. Him in Becoming Jane...aww.
Ah. I have been waiting for this movie since October when I was in America and I heard about it. This is based on a novel by the same name. Love Adaptations of books.
And the cast << Carey Mulligan, Keira Knightley (who grew up around where I live and I love her acting and movies) and Andrew Garfield. think they're all great and should be good together. I am also interesting because when I read the synopsis, it sounded a little dystopian, which is my new love....GAH I WANT TO SEE IT.
Anyway. I'm done. Hope you enjoyed that :)
