I only saw it a month ago because I was a bit put off by the ‘modern’ dvd cover (didn’t know there would be costumes/scenery etc.), but honestly, I wish I watched it earlier! I LOVED Austenland, not even ashamed to say so! *swoons over J.J. Feild*
The concept of “guilty pleasures” should be abolished, because there’s no reason to be ashamed of liking something, even if it’s the biggest piece of cheesy wishfulfillment since Kate & Leopold. :D *joins you in swooning*
I own the DVD, I know how you feel. There is just something about Hadley Fraser going “CHRISTINE” that gets to me, what can I say.
I’m not much of a theatre buff, so I didn’t know any of the cast. That made it extra cool, though, because at one point there’s a close-up of the Phantom raising his arm to the sky and you can see a tattoo peeping out on his wrist. Now I’ve discovered the man is covered in tattoos and it’s AWESOME.
this-new-romantic-way said: I've gone beyond the "this is so stupid but I love it" phase right into "fuck it I will reblog everything twice" madness.
Normally I reach the madness stage fairly quickly (I think I watched the 25th anniversary production of the Phantom of the Opera at Albert Hall at least five times since I discovered it was on American Netflix three days ago) but I’m still teetering on the edge for Austenland.
