shopgirl trailer = indie yuppie awesomeness

Now I understand why everyone has been linking to it -- the trailer for Shopgirl [apple] is completely dreamy -- it features music from the Notwist, Explosions in the Sky, and Death Cab for Cutie. Claire Danes as the object of Steve Martin and Jason Schwartzman's affections in a movie based on Martin's novella.

While I'm swooning over the cast and soundtrack I wonder if the film will be any good. Has anyone read the book?

Okay - what is that permalink thing? I think I accidentally clicked on it.

I read the book. It was awhile ago. I remember liking it, overall, though not thinking "this was the best book ever"! You know? I wonder what I did with it - it's got to be around here somewhere.

I should read it again before the movie.
the permalink is just the URL for this specific post, it's the same as the comment link. I didn't realize that this new journal style showed both permalink & comment; so I just removed that option.

Based on the wide variety of responses to the book, it might be worth a read before seeing the movie. It's only a novella; so it's not a big commitment!
Nope - it's short. And good news, I found my copy! I noticed it was published in 2000 so it's been 5 years since I read it, I'm definitely going to re-read it quickly. When does the movie come out?
I don't know. The trailer says "fall"
Randomly, the Entertainment Weekly was all about the fall movies, and it comes out Oct 21st.
