"It is a new world!"

Posted On 9:31 PM |

Love knows nothing of rank or riverbank
It will spark between a queen and the poor vagabond who plays the king
And their love should be minded by each
For love denied blights the soul we owe to God.

In every online questionnaire and perhaps even on my yearbook blurb if there was a line for it, the favourite movie field always read The Princess Bride.  I still love that movie and have had the entire script memorized for as long as I can remember, you miserable, vomitous mass...

I love it, but the one movie that always sweeps me off my feet, away from a crappy day (like yesterday) and make me all floaty and fluttery and in love with love is, well, Shakespeare In Love.

The film won, like, a gugillion awards, so the work itself is excellent.  I love Gwyneth Paltrow, and this movie's got three of my favourite men I can't have (Rupert Everett - gay; Ben Affleck - married; Me - married; Joseph Fiennes - Grrrrmmmm, who cares).

Especially right now, where I'm feeling sort of stuck in routine and chaos, it's such a wonderful escape and fills in some gaps that the Coles notes didn't cover back when I was in high school. heh heh

Got any suggestions of other fabulous movies I should watch?
