Go-See: The Reader

You could take a still from any single second of Stephen Daldry's The Reader and make the most beautiful photograph. I can't say enough about the visual pleasures of this film. From Kate Winslet's creamy complexion, to sunsets making a gray city glow, to old-time boxed-car trams, to delicious cotton dresses, it was all divinely shot and lit and decorated and printed.

The subject matter may be a bit heavy for some, but the gorgeous, rich scenery will be a treat for all. Go see it and tell me what you think.

Saw it on Saturday at The Paris. Loved it. Who knew an Auschwitz Holocaust drama could be so sexy!
