you can learn from:
Midnight in Paris (2011)
Zelda: You have a glazed look in your eye.
Stunned, stupefied, anesthetized, lobotomized...
Gil: I - I - I keep thinking that man at the piano...
believe it or not I recognize his face from some
old sheet music - what am I talking about here?
Zelda: I know if I put my mind to it I could be one
of the great writers of musical lyrics, not that I can
write melodies - and I try - and then I hear the songs
he writes and I realize I'll never write a great lyric
and that my talent really lies in drinking.
A happy 33 to this week's MNPP banner girl Alison Pill today! AP is such an underrated talent. I saw Three Tall Women on Broadway twice by a strange coincidence (I hardly ever see Broadway shows just once, but fortune favored me that month) and Pill more than held her own both times opposite Laurie Metcalf and Glenda Jackson, a feat of insane heights considering they are Laurie Metcalf and Glenda Jackson. Go Pill! Viva Pill! Happy Pill!
