I like Jane Campion's work; she was nominated for a Best Director Oscar for "The Piano", many years ago. She's the first female director to win the Palme d'Or at Cannes. She also directed "Bright Star", a wonderful bio pic about John Keats, one of my favorite poets. So yeah, I'm looking forward to this.

I don't know if this is showing locally; I suppose I could catch a showing if I wanted to go to San Francisco for it. What I will probably do is stream it on Netflix when it's available on December 1. I'm getting to be old enough that I prefer watching a film in my living room rather than a crowded theater full of noisy, unmasked people. And in any case, I'm getting hard of hearing, so I like to be able to turn on the captions.

I'm not familiar with Savage's work (yeah, GREAT name for a Western writer!) but from what I'm reading, it sounds pretty intriguing. I look forward to the movie. I will probably post an opinion after I see it.

  • Jerry Prather? Hear good things about this one. I am not that familiar with Campion's work, but Cumberbatch is apparently superb, per usual, as is Dunst, also per usual. Anyone who sees it, mind posting... more

      Campion is famous down here for The Piano. Check it out. Brilliant. Pb

        Jane Campion made an interesting movie about a writer. Janet Frame. I never saw Piano, but it's never too late. It has an excellent cast, Holly Hunter and Harvey Keitel.
