the pianist

I had been reluctant to go see The Pianist because I knew it would take me a box of Kleenex just to get through it, but finally last night I caved in and we went. Of course it was very hard to watch, but it blew me away. Polanski is still at the top of his game, and there are no words to describe Adrien Brody in this film. The last half an hour of the movie was particularly poignant, and Brody’s performance was incredibly nuanced and restrained.
(BTW, Brody bears an uncanny resemblance to a guy I dated in college, which was eerie. Hi Kawthar!)
Anyway, I had been rooting for Daniel Day-Lewis to win the Oscar ™ but now I’m hoping Brody will get it. Go see The Pianist!
