Junebug

   24 July 2006, early morning

I made Dave and Carvill watch Junebug on Saturday. The film is about an art dealer traveling to the rural-South with her new husband to meet his family. Junebug is very much my sort of movie: slow and subtle. The acting is great and gives the film an authentic feel. Amy Adams in particular is really good as the pregnant and chirpy Ashley in the film. (Her husband is played by Ben McKenzie from the O.C.) The film has some funny moments, but for the most part the jokes are not in your face. The dialog is good and rings very true. I enjoyed the film, Carvill and Dave not so much.

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
