GAH!!!! 1 MORE WEEK!!!!
Bel Ami is around the corner! Have you made your plans? You know we want you READY.
First: The list of viewing options for May 4th. I'm checking the release time for a film going on VOD this week so I'll let you guys know if May 4th at midnight (May 3rd 9pm PST) is an option.
Next: A quick update about theaters for June 8th. Check you out, Ohio!
Lastly: A respectable review from Times Literary Review. I've been quite bothered with Magnolia Pictures twitter campaign for the film in the States. It's a shame the film isn't being promoted in a fashion that isn't so teeny-bopper but I can't act like I don't understand that approach either. C'est la vie. I believe Cosmopolis will have better promo stateside.
Here's the excerpt of the Rob mention but click the thumbnail to read the whole interview. Thank you Jean for emailing it to us :)
The film looks sumptuous and the Anglo-American cast is distinguished...The heart-throb Robert Pattinson as Duroy is more likeable and guileless than the Third Republic parvenu of the book. Maupassant said of him "he has no talent. He gets ahead by using women", and this aspect of Duroy's character is well brought out by Pattinson.
We are so ready for you, DuRob.
