December 8th, 2009.
It's the first of three premieres this week (and the first of five in seven days, if I can motivate myself to get to all of them).
But there's one immediately different aspect to this one - the wait was slightly longer but it felt considerably shorter with the addition of some friendly and intelligent conversation beforehand. ....On a slightly related note, can I ask a question: if you see a pretty girl next to you is reading the *only* Jane Austen novel you actually enjoyed reading (as opposed to the ones you read because you were forced), can you mention it in conversation, or is it so massively implausible - despite being true - that you're better off not mentioning it? I ask on the off chance that there's ever a time this call needs to be made again.
Anyway, here's how it turned out. Photographically, I mean.
In other news.... I never really take advantage... even when Jane Austen throws out an Assist...
So that was that. Actually, I think this premiere might have garnered some better than average shots, but since it's for a film that features (I'm guessing) little in the way of massive CGI-budgets or plausible academy-award winning performances, I'm rating it higher on overall enjoyment than photographic resonance.
Until next time!
