a place that transcends time

I think I have a crush on Edward Norton. Not because I find him insanely good looking, because he's got a rather awkward looking face. I think it's because of this role (let's face it, he was kinda scary in "American History X") as Walter Fane in "The Painted Veil," based on the novel by W. Somerset Maugham (awesome, awesome, awesome name).

Chronicling a relationship between a frivolous London socialite named Kitty and her stoic, studious husband Walter, the scenery changes from Europe to Shanghai to rural China. It's such a beautiful story, and the Naomi + Edward combination is beyond amazing. And I love the 20s costuming. What would Kitty Fane wear? Spectator brogues, sequined dresses, simple floral dresses, and straw hats galore.

"Could you not tell that I'm in love with you?" - Walter Fane

"As if a woman ever loved a man for his virtue." - Kitty Fane


  1. True story, I agree with your travel rant and I haven't been watching Daria all weekend.

    But back to what really matters, and that is your incredible taste in men. I too have a crush for Edward Norton. He's sexy and incredibly intelligent. Needs more Ed in the world.

  2. I've been meaning to see this movie forever! I had a crush on Mr. Norton too! I forget what spurred it but it was circa high school which was many, many moons ago.
    Hope you're doing well!!!

  3. Heck yes, amazing film!! I only watched it because it was on BBC iPlayer one time, and heck I am glad that I did.
