Those members of the BBC who missed out on the movie night last night didn’t really miss out on much, except a lot of:
- Cool Ranch Doritos
“that wasn’t in the book!”
a lot of imdb trivia such as: Chris Sarandon (Darnay/Carton) was Susan Sarandon’s first husband, and Alice Krige plays Lucie Manette well enough to later become the Borg Queen
a whole lotta giggling at Gaspard’s fabulously 80s feathered hair (I think that was the character)
It was probably a good recap of the book, but really left so much out and took so many other liberties that we had a hard time taking it too seriously. It was also really slow, so there was plenty of time for visiting, which was nice.
Continuing in our “read it to me” vein, the next meeting of BBC will be the beginning of the Martin Chuzzlewit mini-series at Kylle’s house on the 22nd at 10:30. If you need directions, contact her directly, as we won’t post her address here on the blog.
Kylle — do you want to post a list of things we can bring and then we can sign up?
