if you haven't seen the way we were, you need to. ASAP. it's old. it's about older times. but who cares? i don't think you can watch that movie and not see something of yourself in the characters. for some reason, though it makes no sense to me, robert redford reminded me of musicboy this time. perhaps it's the depth of feeling for him; maybe it's that "he's so amazing, how could i ever deserve him?" approach that seems to be running throughout. i have no idea, but it was surprising--and i've seen that movie several times before.
i'm always affected.
i'd like to thank tcm for putting it on tv on the day when i am buried in grading. it makes the papers go slower, but infinitely less painfully.
