I had mentioned on another thread that I had joined a face-to-face book club, and that we were reading "The Gathering," by Anne Enright. We discussed it this evening, and it was disliked by all seven readers. None of us would recommend it to a friend. :lol: That really isn't funny..sorry ...

I am really lookihg forward to the announcment on who they cast as Hoover. I wonder, how will they portray him in the film? I like the idea of Philip Seymour Hoffman that was being bandied about on a forum at IMDb (from Burrough's recent blog). I can't wait to find out who it will be. Off topic, bu...

Slightly of-topic here - does anyone know why it is that this movie was not eligible to be nominated for an Academy Award as "Best Foreign Language Film" this year? If you would rather PM an answer to me (as it IS off-topic ) that would be great. I am so confused... :dunce: What I heard (...

From IMDb

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0401383/trivia

The script, written by Ron Harwood, was originally in English. Director Julian Schnabel convinced the studio, Pathé, to change the language to French to stay true to Bauby's life and story.

Wasn't there some talk of Johnny doing this one in French or am I remembering another movie? That would have been interesting! I guess I just assumed that if Johnny had been in the movie that it would have been in English.... I definitely am not sure though. Slightly off-topic here - does anyone kn...

Have you noticed--Zoners who haven't seen it yet say, "Oh, I wish Johnny were in it," and Zoners who have seen it say, "I'm glad Johnny wasn't in it." I actually am glad Johnny wasn't in it but not for the reason that most others seem to be glad that he wasn't. For me the movie ...

The book is one of my favourites and I am often leery of movies that are made from books that I really like but this story c...

As for the name of the restaurant that you commented on, Liz I am wondering if it anything to do with the family of JP Morgan The "creator" (for lack of a better term) of US Steel and General Electric among others. His middle name (the P in JP) was Pierpont. I am amazed and impressed (as ...

And then I was wondering if that was how the play went. I can’t remember. I was wondering the same thing, Liz. I thought that the play ended with Johanna and Anthony walking in after "the deed had been done" and for some reason I also thought there was a scene afterwards (an epilogue) but...
