prhoshay I love The Bad Seed! It's one of my favorite old movies. I never saw The Good Son, but they did remake The Bad Seed as a TV movie in 1985. I think I saw it, but it's not half as memorable as the original black & white film. Seriously, I don't remember a thing about it. Have you read the book by William March? If you loved the movie, you should. The book is even better and the ending (which I prefer) is drastically different.
This weekend we rented Intermission, a great ensemble movie that is a black comedy set in contemporary Dublin. With its intersecting storylines, sprawling cast, and mixture of humor and gravitas, it reminded me of an Altman film, but with a distinctively Irish twist. Colin Farrell, Colm Meaney, and Cillian Murphy (who is so cute in this role) star, but the character who steals the show is Shirley Henderson as sad sack spinster Sally. This was a lot of fun, and made me curious to see how brown sauce might taste in my coffee.
