Romeo & Juliet Trailer


It's trailerlicious around these parts. So another Romeo & Juliet adaptation, yes. But this one has Damian Lewis as Lord Capulet and Paul Giamatti as Friar Laurence, so I am very much going to be seeing it. Is it just me or is the actor who plays Romeo really sort of channeling Leonard Whiting from the Zeffirelli version? Not a bad thing, my friends. Not a bad thing at all. Due out October 13th, will you be seeing it?

  1. I hadn't heard about this, I'll definitely be seeing it! I really liked Romeo when he was Pip in Great Expectations.

    1. Me, too! I saw that he'd played Pip but I haven't seen it yet. Must rectify that.

    Ooooh I've had my eye on this trailer for about a month now. Hopefully the movie is as stunning as the trailer. I love seeing how all movie/play adaptions change the story in some little way, and am looking forward to see how Julian Fellows and the director interpreted the story. I'm also super excited for Hailee Steinfeld as Juliet. She looks gorgeous! Everyone I know hates Romeo and Juliet though, so I guess I'll be seeing it by myself. =(

    1. I don't know how I missed it until now. I've enjoyed Julian Fellowes' work so far, so I have high hopes. I know a lot of people scoff at R&J, but I have always loved it. Unabashedly. :)

    2. Speaking of book-movie-trailers, the first trailer for The Book Thief came out today (like literally a couple of hours ago). That film also looks amazing.

    3. I saw it! Still can't believe it's going to be a film.

  5. I can't wait to see it! I too have always loved R&J - I own both the Zeffirelli version and the Luhrmann version on dvd. I especially like that they keep on using Zola Jesus's song "Skin" in the trailers for this one (IMHO, the first trailer they released is better than the one you put up).

    1. I own them both, too. :)

      I'll have to check out the first trailer.

    This is the first time I've seen this trailer and it looks good. I'll be willing to watch it if I remember by the time it comes out. LOL.

    1. It's funny when a new adaptation comes out and you see the trailer and realize, yeah, I am totally up for a new take on that story again. :)

    I was wondering why the actor playing Romeo looked so familiar! (I did see him in Great Expectations, but I kept feeling as if I knew him from something else, something much older.)

    1. Not just me then! This made me smile, Karen. Wish we could see it together.

Not long ago I discovered a few of you tweeting to get me to the 300 follower mark. As little things I read on Twitter often do, that one sort of made my day. You're all really too sweet for words and I joked that perhaps it was time for a giveaway. The truth is I've been in the mood to have one for awhile now and this is as good a time as any.

Angie's Best Books of 2019

It is the last day of the year. How are you doing at this point? You good to go on? I'm going to. For a number of important reasons, which are too varied (or possibly too private) to enumerate here. So how about we say we shall go on because: "Gansey. That's all there is." I find that "Because Gansey" is highly motivating when motivation is thin on the ground.

Also thin on the ground have been my posts this year. And yet, I'm still not stopping. And I still greatly enjoy arriving at this final post of the year. And so here I leave my best books of the year. It wound up being a respectable nineteen titles this year. Nineteen for 2019. That's down a fair bit from last year's whopping twenty-eight, but rather on par with previous years' lists and more than 2016 and 2017, respectively. I'm pleased. I'm pleased with every book on this list, with every one of the books you shared with me and the ones I've been able to share with you. …

Angie’s Best Books of the Decade

I am winded, you guys. Winded from laboring over this list. This is the first time I've attempted to cobble together a Best Books of the Decade list, and I can't say I'll be up to it for another ten years or so. But my, I couldn't resist the challenge (or profound pleasure, if we're being honest). I kept trying to winnow it down, kept forcing myself to be ruthless. Like somehow I could (or should) keep it to a top ten (flat impossible) or at least a top twenty-five (who are we kidding?). But after bidding those constraints good riddance, I really did press myself to take a hard, clear look at what hurts (to mangle my favorite Hemingway quote). Because these novels hurt in the best way. Each entry on this list is a five-star book in my books. Which means I wouldn't change a single thing about a single one of them. They are the ones I call perfect when I recommend them to friends and strangers. They are the ones I have read and reread over the past ten years and…
