Are you a writer? Don't miss Genius starring Colin Firth & Jude Law.

Genius— we talked about Genius in a post a week or so backis on my go-see list for this coming week. Colin Firth plays Max Perkins, the Scribner editor who wrangled author Thomas Wolfe—Jude Law—and herded him to publication. Nicole Kidman and Laura Linney star as the women in the men's lives. I can't wait. I'm seeing it with my friend Jackie because not only is she a writer, she also sometimes works as an editor making it the perfect film for her. She's heading home from a Florida vacay, wait until she sees this trailer in French! It's so full of passion which translates beautifully into fran├žais—even if the actor's mouths don't quite match up—she may have to take an earlier plane. In theaters here in the US now, the movie opens in France July 27.

  1. Thanks for sharing this one. As a writer, I'll definitely put it on my list. And I always love the French trailers.

  2. Beautiful cinematography and always good to watch a dubbed film if improving in French is your goal. Colin Firth and Jude Law are not hard to watch...a nice bonus.

  3. Loved the movie, but it's probably not for everyone. Does anyone remember the sentence TW and MP work on which is about a man falling in love - -goes something like - - I fell so quickly that no one in the room heard it. I'm trying to remember it exactly and cannot. I thought the scene captured the editing process so well and was a very poignant scene also.
