Today, I'll be attending a matinee screening of The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, the highly-anticipated new movie from director Nora Ephron.
The movie's playing this weekend in "limited engagements" in Los Angeles and New York. By "limited," they mean one single theatre in all of Los Angeles. It'll open across the country on Christmas Day.
These early screenings are, by far, one of the biggest highlights of living here in Los Angeles. I've been able to see movies like I Heart Huckabee's and Sideways (films which I had been looking forward to for over a year) much sooner that if I had been living in, say... I don't know... Ethiopia.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to get ready for the movie. I'm wearing my new jacket.
