Pushin' for the Oscars

I couldn't stand Joe Wright's recent adaptation of Pride and Prejudice (not, as has been suggested, because I'm an impossible-to-please Austen purist, but because the movie was TOTALLY STUPID), and I'm not exactly panting to go see his new movie Atonement*. I'm sure Ian McEwan's book was good and all, but I'm no fan of the tearjerker, no matter how well-written it is. However, I know that some of you just can't resist the combination of solid source material, period costumes, and Keira Knightley's weird teeth, so we found an NPR article about Mr. Wright and his movies - click here to learn how Mr. Wright's dyslexia has affected his approach to literary adaptations.

*Although James McAvoy is pretty hot... y'know, for an elf.
