the fall: trust, his voice & her heart, love

The Shapes a Bright Container Can Contain (The Fall: Roy & Alexandria, PG)

Hi, everybody!

I watched the most amazing movie a few months ago because I wanted to see more of Lee Pace, who has blown me away with every single character he brings to life. That movie was The Fall, and I cannot say enough to praise the loveliness of the film, the performances of Lee and Catinca Untaru, and the ways in which the movie explores the inner workings of stories and storytellers. (Admittedly, I have a weakness for that subject matter, and everyone should run off and read Michael Chabon's Wonder Boys, his best book, after they've seen this movie.) It's hard to describe this film without giving too much away, or making it seem like something it's not, but probably the best way I can pitch it is if you picked up The Princess Bride and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, shook them together, and plunked them down into the most beautiful places on earth, both natural and constructed. I only wish I'd seen this on the big screen. Trust me, you will want to see this movie. Go!
