The Group: Based on the Book by Mary McCarthy

What are you doing for Black Friday?

 
 Out shopping for crazy Black Friday deals? Not for me thanks, no way. I prefer to avoid the day after Thanksgiving shopping crowds and chill. Take in a movie? There's so many great movies out right now and I still haven't seen The Silver Linings Playbook or The Life of Pi and now, today, in limited release, comes another one on my must see list.  Hitchcock.
The film is based on the book,  Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho by Stephen Rebello,  which I blogged about here.
 
 
 
 
On the other hands, trying to find a place to park at the Arc Light - the only theater it's playing near here - will be impossible on opening day especially when that opening day happens to be the day after Thanksgiving!
 
 
 
 
I guess I'll just check out this trailer again. I'm still trying to decide what I think about Anthony Hopkins' makeup. The film, directed by Sacha Gervasi - making his debut behind the camera, by the way;  previously he wrote the Terminal --, has an interesting cast including Helen Mirren as Hitchock's wife and right arm, Alma:, Scarlett Johannson as Janet Leigh,  James D'Arcy perfectly cast as Anthony Perkins (I think, I hope!), Jessica Biel as Vera Miles and the versatile Toni Collette listed only as Peggy.
 
So that's my plan. Stay home. Curl up with a good book. Or a DVD.
How about you all? How do you plan on spending the day?
