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?

the book is fantastic.

well. i guess you love it or hate it. but i think there's a certain affinity with what i like about death cab here.

not so sure about claire. i saw belle as more of a sarah polley character before i knew it was actually going to be made into a film. but in context/hindsight, no, that wouldn't work. this, i can see. the director's a bit of a wild card though.
*actually checks imdb*

_his dark materials_??!?!!!

i think this trend is going too far. and yet, i am intrigued.
hrmm. I'm not familiar with the Pullman series, but it does seem that the fantasy-type series is a hot commodity for film adaptation.
