I am love-ing this movie

I have recently moved to London and have found that an eleven pound charge to see a movie is commonplace. I think this is pretty expensive, at least 150% of the price of a regular cinema in Dublin. I was so annoyed by the inflated price that I even considered trying to get my money back when I realised the film I had signed up for was subtitled (not that this bothered me, it just seemed to be an appropriate way to regain these precious pounds). Anyway, the price is a rant for another day. I saw the movie 'I am Love' last night and was absolutely blown away by it. Worth all eleven pounds, you could say.

In some ways I don't want to blog about this movie, because building things up like this only lead to disappointment. But it really is a must see movie. Tilda Swinton, was absolutely mesmerising, it was one of those films that seemed so real that you feel a little uncomfortable, like you are spying on the characters in some of the scenes. I have just read that Tilda will be playing the part of Eva in 'We need to talk about Kevin', one of my favourite books, alongside John C. Reilly as her husband, how fitting!
