I cannot watch this movie now without reading the decidedly unempowering subtext of a woman author needing the experience of a man’s love before being able to write properly. Gah.
But I do have a huge weakness for James McAvoy. Any movie he is in goes on my instant TBW list. (yes, I do occasionally swoon over pretty boys though I never dare say it out loud).
(And also, I have a partiality for Anne Hathaway, though she may not be perfect for this part).
