I then went for Boy A, which, er, perhaps wasn't the greatest decision I have ever made. He plays a reformed child murderer, so he's kind of hard to love in that, but it's a wicked film. Very sad, intimate and depressing, but still good. I think he's a quite wonderful actor. My favourite thing he's ever done though is this:
On Saturday night I went to see Due Date at the cinema. It was fantastic. Robert Downey Jr is perfection, AND he actually looks tall in this film! Zach Gallifkakakakaiisskaisisksksis must be really, really short if he makes Rob DJ look tall. It isn't as funny as The Hangover (although you can definitely tell it's by the same director) but it's still excellent. I highly recommend it to any non-serious cinema-goers out there.
The book I'm reading at the moment is one that a woman at work lent to me called A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving. Has anyone else read this? I've just past the halfway point and I am loving it; it is so rare to find characters in novels that actually talk like real people, but this book nails it. It's so funny and so odd at the same time. It's very difficult to explain the plot because it's so weird, but it's basically about this kid, John, and his best friend Owen Meany, who appears to be some kind of genius prophet and voice of the Lord. Or something. I'll let you know when I finish it, but so far it is spectacular.
