My husband and I went to see Tell No One last night in the indy theatre downtown (based on the thriller by Harlan Coben.) Very good movie–there were only a few spots where I had to cover my eyes and ask John to let me know when the violence was over. At one point, my hands still plastered over my eyes, I thought the music sounded different. He’d gotten so caught up in the story, he’d forgotten his assignment. Subtitles can be a grind, but neither of us minded the French. In fact I majored in French in college, but my “mastery” has declined. Francois Cluzet is absolutely adorable. Here’s a review from the BBC–yes you had to suspend disbelief, but the acting and the action was so good, we simply didn’t mind.
Most exciting is that Harlan himself is going to be the guest of honor at Crime Bake this year. So it tickled me to see his cameo in the movie–you can’t miss him, he’s a head taller than the star as he follows him at a train station, and grinning like a monkey.
