Due to Andy’s Four Seaons hook-ups we saw this tonight at The Walnut Street Theater. When I was working and promoting shows, I never had much time for any kind of culture besides my own. I haven’t read the book since high school, but Andy and I both remarked that it’s the kind of story that makes more sense to you when you’re older: the desperation and loneliness of it all, of loving people and things so much that you suffocate them or push them away.

Anthony finally brought this home from TLA. I had trouble getting into the first half of it, as I do with all Ren Faire talk. But I still can’t argue with a villain who makes eggs for his captor. Then I got sucked into the second half of it where the Natalie Portman character confronts her fears and is empowered by another woman’s story. And truth is, the tinfoil head in me wondered how much of the movie’s version of the future could come true or is coming true now — especially the part about the government manipulating the media, waging secret wars, torturing dissenters, and mysterious new viruses.
