I honestly do think I have been more excited for a movie to come out since probably Titanic, oh and maybe Spice World. This Baz Lurhman(Moulin Rougue, Australia) film was basically tailor made for moi. Its an adaptation of my all time favorite book about my favorite era the rolling 20s, by my favorite author F. Scott Fitzgerald, and stars my two favorite actors, Leo and Tobey Maguire(I think you get the picture). There have been tons of film adaptations of this novel, and though I was quite fond of the 1974 film I have been waiting for a film to really do justice to this wonderful novel and really convey what a G, Gatsby was. I am already blown away by the trailer and cannot wait until the film comes out in theaters this Christmas. For once I am actually looking forward to the typical Jewish Christmas tradition of you know movies and Chinese food, well not so much the later part still.

Good morning Fleurettes! This weekend I made the spontaneous decision to go to Austin for the Media, Film, and Music Festival known as SXSW. I like to be spontaneous sometimes, and go with the flow but I also like to be organized especially since I booked a flight for Monday morning only. I’m normally not the biggest morning person, and my spend Sundays doing leisurely things, but thought it was necessary to get an early start, have a healthy breakfast, good workout, and start mentally preparing and getting organized for my trip. I am already enjoying listening to some of the bands attending the festival this year(thank you Spotify) but am still overwhelmed with the lineups, schedules, and of course parties, so if anyone has any tips for the festival I would love to hear them! Thanks! Hope everyone has a great morning, whether you plan to be productive, relax or spontaneous! xo
I was finally able to see the much anticipated Lars Von Trier film Melancholia, and it was well worth the wait. The are no words to describe the sheer brilliance and beauty of this exquisite yet haunting film. The overture of slow moving images and eery Classical music is a breathtaking masterpiece on its own. Another memorable scene, features lighting of lanterns following a wedding ceremony, a tradition that mainly finds its origins in Asian cultures. I have been fascinated with these lanterns as long as I can remember and have always wanted to light one of my own. These airborne lanterns may also be referred to as fire balloons and they illuminate the sky in the same way as the planet that haunts the lives of these victims in the film.
