Shopgirl

I loved it. It was a very good adaptation of the book, which I really enjoyed and am so glad I read beforehand. It perfectly depicted loneliness, connection, hope, women, men, communication, hearing what you want to hear. Claire Danes, who I'm not usually a fan of, was fantastic and perfect as Mirabelle. Steve Martin, you are one very clever man.

I still haven't seen it yet -- I'm not a huge fan of Claire, either, but she seems to fit the role very well. And I've always loved Steve Martin. Love him.

Steve Martin just gets better with age. I adore him. Glad you liked the movie. I cannot wait for it to come out on DVD.

I loved your review of the movie, Vanessa. Exactly how I saw it too.
