Well, it does sound interesting! Your reviews are always so beautiful, too.

Thank you!

A little OT, but I've never been that close up to the makings of a major film before, although the only actual filming I witnessed was somebody shooting a plastic arm up a fake tree.

I think it's splendid and I am only sorry there is no official story of the Penguins of Dunkirk.

Seriously, that is very neat. I haven't seen it since it came out, but I have seen Atonement, so I guess I know what your town looks like when it's being war-torn and full of James McAvoy. The closest I've been to a major film in the making was in 2007, when Spielberg shot the university parts of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in and around Yale. I saw the finished film in a theater in New Haven. There's an extensive chase sequence that drives right through across Old Campus and other recognizable features of the academic landscape. It may remain the only movie I've seen where the scenery got a standing ovation. I just wish there really was a statue of Denholm Elliott on the grounds. I'd visit more often.
