... you can learn from:
Brideshead Revisited (2008)
Sebastian: Just the place to bury a crock of gold. I should like to bury something precious, in every place I've been happy. And then when I was old, and ugly and miserable, I could come back, and dig it up, and remember.
Happy 42 to our beloved Ben Whishaw today! Can you believe I've never seen this version of Brideshead Revisited? I need to get on that. I'm sad that Luca Guadagnino's version doesn't appear to be happening -- apparently the budget grew too big and Luca being Luca... well anyway Ben has a lovely role in Sarah Polley's film Women Talking, which I saw last week at NYFF, and y'all should plan on seeing that and while you're at it on Ben making you cry, as he's wont to do. Not sure I'll have a chance to write about that movie at length but I liked it quite a lot. (I did share some photos from the press conference and the new trailer right here though.)
