Mrs. Dalloway

Just got my DVD from Amazon. Guess what I'm watching tonight :D

I watched this a few years ago. Looking forward to re-acquainting myself with it.

Just finished watching it. MK is wonderful to watch, of course--but he didn't have near enough scenes. I like romances--but only if they are paired with mystery and/or suspense. The most suspenseful part of this movie, to me, was Rupert Graves jumping out a window. It was fun to see actors from other British shows I like (FW, Doc Martin, Sherlock).

He looks soooooooo handsome in this one! Well lit, I think my friend Chris said. Whatever, yummy!

I would hate this movie if it wasn't for the presence of MK. Nothing really happens, the whole Rupert Graves part is - well, why is it there? The actors portraying the young characters are of vastly different heights than their older counterparts. And all of that past stuff was stupid.

He looks soooooooo handsome in this one!

I like it!

I'm almost sorry I bought it. I haven't even broken down and bought Out of Africa. But, it was cheap on Amazon...so...

... not to mention the vastly different heights of MK and Vanessa (4-inches). Somehow they manage to pull it off so that it doesn't look like a dalliance with a praying mantis :lol:

:rofl: that's too funny Starlight. A lack of stature never seems to present a problem for MK, they even joke about it in A&E.
But, what does the brain matter....compared to the heart?

Quite a number of famous film actors are 5' 7" or under. While their height has sometimes prompted film makers to go to daft lengths to make them appear to be taller - eg Alan Ladd standing on a box, or a female co-star standing in a hole - it certainly hasn't held them back. This recent article in the Telegraph lists notable actors ranging in height from 5' 0" to 5' 7" ...
Telegraph, April 2016: Hollywood's 30 great short actors

One of my favourite stars of the Silver Screen, James Cagney, was only 5' 4" - short in stature, perhaps, but a big man for all that. :D

This is so interesting! Thanks for posting that website. I never realized the height of some of those actors, because there is so much more to acting than a towering physical frame. It's more about the towering talent and abilities of the actors. MK has that in spades!! :foyle5:
