    You completed some nice points there. I did a search on the subject and found mainly folks will have the same opinion with your blog.

      Glad You found us and like the site.

      Film!

      Welcome….:0)

    Welcome those joining us for this discussion tonight. We will be discussing WFE book and movie trailer. Our discussion may involve some spoilers because we may refer to the book from time to time.

    First off, for those of u who have read the book. What do u think about the trailer?

    This book really kept me engaged all throughout, from the very start of the book u connect with Jacob and can’t wait to see what happens. Will he go crazy or what? It’s really a sensitive and tragic story. It’s nice to see the trailer touches on that at the very beginning.

    • Parisienne December 16, 2010 at 7:05 PM #

      I love the trailer. I can’t wait to see the film its visually appealing.

      • Open Book December 16, 2010 at 7:12 PM #

        Oh! I so agree. The cinematography looks amazing. U really feel like u are being transported back in time. I think Reese looks great and is wonderful in period films! Also, I like the fact the director did not put out the big dramatic scene between Rob and Chris to oversell the movie or Rob.

        • kim December 16, 2010 at 7:14 PM #

          Do you mean the one at the end? Or the one they show a quick clip of? Or the one in the mess hall? (oh well there are a lot of dramatic scenes with Rob and Christopher, which I can’t wait to see)

          • Parisienne December 16, 2010 at 7:15 PM #

            I think open book is referring to the clip where Rob is on the ground and Christoph is going to club him.

            • kim December 16, 2010 at 7:20 PM #

              Sorry I’m a research at heart so I kind of get really passionate about some subjects.

        • Parisienne December 16, 2010 at 7:14 PM #

          I agree. I like the fact that Rob is not oversold at all. Its a team effort.

        • Open Book December 16, 2010 at 7:18 PM #

          I was talking about the scene where Chris and Rob get into a fist fight over Marlena. It’s really a big turning point for Reese’s character.

          • kim December 16, 2010 at 7:22 PM #

            Oh Yeah I remember that one too. Sorry.

            I can’t even tell you what scene I am looking forward to because there would be so many.

          • Parisienne December 16, 2010 at 7:22 PM #

            They do? Is it in the trailer? Let me rewatch.

            • kim December 16, 2010 at 7:25 PM #

              No I don’t remember the fist fight that is at the end or towards the end of the movie.

    • kim December 16, 2010 at 7:08 PM #

      I loved the book and the script I found online.

      I have to say this movie is something I have been really looking forward to.

      The look of the trailer, the colors, costumes, and music are just amazing. I really have not been this excited over a movie in a long time.

      • Parisienne December 16, 2010 at 7:10 PM #

        I know me too. Makes me want to read the book all over again.

  3. Parisienne December 16, 2010 at 7:06 PM #

    I didn’t like that his children just left him in the home. I wonder why his children didn’t love him?

    • kim December 16, 2010 at 7:10 PM #

      I didn’t take it his kids didn’t love him, I just think that they were older and he kind of got forgotten by his family. Sadly, it happens more than you think.

    • Open Book December 16, 2010 at 7:14 PM #

      Yeah! I thought his children leaving him was sad to.

      • Parisienne December 16, 2010 at 7:21 PM #

        I really could feel for him. It almost seemed like Marlena was the glue that held the family together.

  4. Parisienne December 16, 2010 at 7:13 PM #

    I know it does. but through out the book he didn’t really have anyone. His parents died. He joined a circus. The only real friends he had were walter, camel and marlena. I just thought Sara would have made the familial bond a little tighter.

    • kim December 16, 2010 at 7:15 PM #

      Yeah I can see your point. But I think she did that in the book with the animals. At least that is how I took it that the animals became part of his family.

    • Open Book December 16, 2010 at 7:30 PM #

      Well I think the Circus reminded him of Marlena because she loved the animals like they were her children. Well up until she had children. So maybe Sara was trying to recapture that feeling of remembrance for Marlena at the end.

      • Parisienne December 16, 2010 at 7:35 PM #

        That’s a good point.

  5. Parisienne December 16, 2010 at 7:18 PM #

    I liked very much the changes that were made to the script. For example, when Jacob goes to stab August in the sleeping car. In the movie, Marlena is there, in the book, she’s not. Much more dramatic.

    • Open Book December 16, 2010 at 7:22 PM #

      Yes! I think the screen adaptation is much more dramatic and compelling than the book. U rarely get that when a book is adapted.

  6. Open Book December 16, 2010 at 7:23 PM #

    Does this story remind u of Titanic?

    • Parisienne December 16, 2010 at 7:26 PM #

      The romance between the characters? Or the visuals?

    • kim December 16, 2010 at 7:27 PM #

      Now that you mention it, it does have some Titanic vibe. The look of both movies is similar, the colors, and from what I can tell the music will be an important part of it like Titanic.

      But we do have similar story lines.

    • Open Book December 16, 2010 at 7:33 PM #

      Well it’s funny because I don’t think it’s at all like Titanic. However, I was talking about the romance between the characters? I just wanted to get your thoughts?

      • kim December 16, 2010 at 7:42 PM #

        Yeah, see I think the feel of the book and what I have seen of the movie thus far (which is not much)it does give me that feel of Titanic. It maybe because both are period movies, it could be the romantic lover’s triangle.

        Now I not saying that this movie is going to be a classic like Gone with the Wind or Casablance, it maybe or maybe it won’t only time will tell, but I do feel that Titanic is definetly in that same class.

      • Lurker December 16, 2010 at 8:54 PM #

        From what I saw on the trailer it seems the same thing we saw with Titanic which is the love triangle. Typical female role story.

        • kim December 16, 2010 at 8:58 PM #

          Yeah, I see that too. It is pretty typical female role

  7. Parisienne December 16, 2010 at 7:28 PM #

    I also like how the characters of August and Uncle Al were combined.

    • kim December 16, 2010 at 7:29 PM #

      You know when I first read the script that was one of a couple things that bothered me, but now seeing just a touch of how Christopher pulled the character off, I think it was a good choice.

      • Parisienne December 16, 2010 at 7:33 PM #

        I agree. Christoph is good at playing bad guys though. He scared the crap out of me in Inglorious Basterds.

        • kim December 16, 2010 at 7:35 PM #

          Sadly, I haven’t and won’t see that movie. I really don’t like Quentin Tarantino’s movies. Plus, I just have a hard time when people take serious history and kind of make a joke out of it.

          • Parisienne December 16, 2010 at 7:37 PM #

            To be honest, I was not a huge Quentin Taratino fan either. After seeing that film, I am. You should give it a chance.

          • Parisienne December 16, 2010 at 7:42 PM #

            I understand your point. He did give some great visuals though.

        • Open Book December 16, 2010 at 7:42 PM #

          In Inglorious Bastard’s, Chris Waltz performance was amazing!!!! He made that movie!!! He was so unpredictable that’s what made him terrifying.

          • Parisienne December 16, 2010 at 7:45 PM #

            He was just awesome! He always seemed to have the upper hand. I about fell off the chair in anticipation when he was sitting with the woman in the restaurant and he ordered a glass of milk for her. He knew who she was.

            • Open Book December 16, 2010 at 7:52 PM #

              Oh! Yes… Also the seen in the very beginning where he knows the guy is hiding people in his house. How about the scene with the women’s shoe? Goodness!!! I nearly lost it.

              • Parisienne December 16, 2010 at 7:55 PM #

                I know! He made that guy cry. I wanted to yell at the screen and when I did alot of people turned around and looked. When he put the shoe on her foot…..I knew she was dead. He wasn’t going to let her out of the room alive.

  8. Parisienne December 16, 2010 at 7:30 PM #

    Yeah it does kind of remind me of Titanic.

    • kim December 16, 2010 at 7:32 PM #

      But you know Titanic reminded me of Gone with the Wind and even Casablanca.

      • Open Book December 16, 2010 at 7:58 PM #

        That’s funny u say that because it’s true. I think all romantic period dramas have some similar formulas to them. However, it’s how u mix the ingredients that’s what makes it amazing. Titanic has it’s own beautiful moments, just like Gone With The Wind and other classics. Could WFE join that caliber of films? It’s possible given how many sites I have read today comparing WFE to Titanic.

        • kim December 16, 2010 at 8:02 PM #

          Yeah, I didn’t really think Titanic until you mentioned it. Then when you mentioned that I remember my other favorite movies. Similar concepts all period movies. Yeah, all historic type.

          • Open Book December 16, 2010 at 8:09 PM #

            Kim,

            My point is, I think it’s impossible for these period dramas to not remind u of other period dramas especially if they are done well. So far the trailer foe WFE has stirred up some images of other great films which I think is great.

            • kim December 16, 2010 at 8:14 PM #

              Oh I didn’t take it critical what you said, it just made me think, which is why we have these great conversations.

  9. Parisienne December 16, 2010 at 7:36 PM #

    The romance? I could see that….lower class guy with an upper class woman.

  10. Open Book December 16, 2010 at 7:39 PM #

    Well, I believe the story about Jacob is so traumatic in the very beginning u are wondering when he’s going to crack!!! This to me really is nothing like Leos’s character in Titanic he’s quite the hustler and well adjusted. U never feel worried for Leo’s character like u do for Jacob in WFE.

    • Parisienne December 16, 2010 at 7:40 PM #

      I agree. I was waiting for Jacob to off himself at some point.

      • Open Book December 16, 2010 at 7:48 PM #

        Exactly, I think that’s what draws u in, so u want to follow this characters journey.

        • Parisienne December 16, 2010 at 7:52 PM #

          I always thought the older Jacob was quite funny especially in the lunch room of the home. She captured the essence of an elderly person perfectly, IMO.

          • Open Book December 16, 2010 at 8:02 PM #

            Oh! I like the scene where he goes on about u never carried Water to Elephants. LOL!!

            • Parisienne December 16, 2010 at 8:04 PM #

              LOL! Then he called him an Old Coot. 🙂

    • kim December 16, 2010 at 7:53 PM #

      Okay I can see your point about Jack (Titanic) and Jacob (WFE), but maybe because I knew the history (not of these particular characters, but the chances of Jack in Titanic surviving was not great, considering he was male and was in steerage class) (Sorry I went all historical there)

      • Open Book December 16, 2010 at 8:05 PM #

        I see what your saying… I guess it would have helped to get more background info. on Leo’s character. U know his hard childhood etc….. But I liked Titanic and thought it was handled well.

        • Parisienne December 16, 2010 at 8:09 PM #

          I liked Titanic. I just thought it was to long.

        • kim December 16, 2010 at 8:10 PM #

          yeah I agree on both parts. It was beautifully made and Cameron did a lot of great research, obviously, to make sure it was as close as accurate as possible that impressed me.

  11. Open Book December 16, 2010 at 8:13 PM #

    Don’t u think the timing of this film coming out is perfect!!! Meaning April 15th right before summer. It really will be a good summer movie.

    Listen, I’m going over to the “Leave Him Alone” article to comment. Please join me.

  12. Parisienne December 16, 2010 at 8:14 PM #

    IMO, this film seems definitely Oscar worthy. Do you think it will be up for any Oscar nominations?

    • kim December 16, 2010 at 8:19 PM #

      Well, I’ll go out there and say yes, from what I see this should get some noms. for Oscar and other awards next year. Do I see Rob getting an Oscar nom? No, he will need to pay his dues before he gets one.

      • Parisienne December 16, 2010 at 8:22 PM #

        I think so too. I’m over at Leave Him Alone now.

  13. Britt December 16, 2010 at 8:38 PM #

    Okay I’m a little late but I thought I’d post. I love the trailer. Everything looks great so far. Rob looks gorgeous. Reese looks beautiful and Rosie does too. lol

    I haven’t read the book but I read the script and it kind of reminds me of Free Willy in a way, which is one of my all time favourite movies, especially as a child. In Free Willy, a boy befriends a whale and becomes it’s trainer and he’s willing to do anything to protect it. In WFE, a young man befriends an elephant and becomes it’s trainer and also protects it.

    • kim December 16, 2010 at 8:45 PM #

      Yeah, I can see some similarities, maybe a grown ups verision since there is a love story involved with WFE, with a love triangle in the mix.

  14. ozzie20 December 16, 2010 at 8:47 PM #

    I’ve only read the script so I can’t really comment much. I found the script very good and when I saw the trailer, it just blew me away. Visually, it’s stunning, from what I can see the acting is great and I can’t wait to hear the soundtrack.

    • filmfan2000 December 20, 2010 at 10:26 AM #

      I agree with you the visuals do look great in this movie.
