There’s a small bit where Sophie and Ben are standing together and you can tell she’s wearing high heels to help her look taller and therefore older.
Is anyone getting the DVD tomorrow? I’m dying to know what the deleted scenes may be and if the Max marching down the main street with the other Jews scene is one of them.
“The fever can make things wonderful.
Even now I see winter as it turns around the room in the light. Darting from white lances, to rays, silver crosses, to the optical glass, to the flames, to the reflective windows, and illuminating each of us. The sicker I become, the more clearly I can see that everything is connected by light.
Do you have glasses for that?”
Repeat viewings aka cake/warm bath movies
So it’s Oscar time and I’ve done something I’ve never done before. I have seen all of the nine films nominated for best picture. (Thank you easily available screeners.) They were all very good. Some better than others. But one thing 8 of the 9 films all have in common is that, while they’re quality films, I have no desire to ever see them again. They just didn’t have that magic or pull for me for an absolute must rewatch. I know ‘12 Years A Slave’ will win but for me once was more than enough. It was very powerful but it left me cold.
The only Best Picture nominee I absolutely loved was ‘Philomena’ and will gladly watch it again and again. It’s hard to beat Dame Judi Dench in my opinion. It’s a sweet story filled with heart break and healing. It’s just an easy film to watch unlike the other nominees.
You know how there is a small list of movies that you will watch over and over and never get tired of? You flip through the channels on the tv and come across one of your favourites, and even though you’ve seen it a dozen times or more already, and you have the DVD, you’ll still watch it again, because it’s just that good? Well for me there are three films in 2013 that will be included on my own personal rewatch list. Philomena is one of them. The other two are Saving Mr Banks and The Book Thief. All three of these films leave you with a hopeful heart. Beautifully told stories, great performances, tears and laughter mixed perfectly together. They’re not flashy like ‘American Hustle’. They’re not technical marvels like ‘Gravity’. They’re just damn good films that feel like warm baths or taste like the most delicious cake.
So what are your cake or warm bath movies?

I love the look he gives her as he anticipates her reaction to his Christmas gift.
