Today for the Monday Movie Meme, the Bumbles have asked us for our favorite Katharine Hepburn film, after having spent the weekend in Connecticut near her old stomping ground. Well, I am sorry to say that despite my love for movies, I've never been a fan of Katharine Hepburn. It isn't that I don't appreciate her acting skills...Lord knows she was one of the best. I just have never actually watched many of her films. Of the 50-something movies she has starred in, I've seen only two (On Golden Pond, and The African Queen). Therefore, I really don't feel qualified to have an opinion, and wasn't going to post this week.
But then, my sister posted something movie-ish on Facebook that caught my attention, and thought I would share it with you. Did you all know that "We Need to Talk About Kevin", the horribly disturbing but brilliant novel by Lionel Shriver, is going to be made into a movie starring Tilda Swinton (Eva), John C. Reilly (Franklin) and Ezra Miller (Kevin)? I expressed to my sister my concern for the success of adapting such an internal novel to the movie screen. Her response was "if anyone can do it, Lynne Ramsay can." I am not familiar with any of her work, but my sister would know. The movie is scheduled for release on September 2nd in the UK; no word on a US release. It does not appear that Ms. Shriver is involved in the writing of the screenplay.
So what do you think? If the movie comes to the US (and I'm assuming it will), will you see it? What do you think of the casting?
