I'm hoping for Orlando or Ft Lauderdale. That's a bit of a ways from where I live but I doubt it would come to the Space Coast.

DH and I saw Good Saturday morning. It was a disturbing movie even though we can guess what's going to happen in the future to the characters and are silently screaming at them to do something different: Maurice, leave Germany while you can! John, you can't 'steer the party in another direction.' None of the characters could predict the magnitude of what the Nazis had in mind. (Kinda like us and the subprime mortgage mess, spiraling into world stock markets crashing.) Jason and Viggo did great jobs. I also didn't see Halder's wife's betrayal coming.

It was well worth the wait for me. And I'm puzzled by some of the mediocre reviews of the movie. Did they see the same movie or were they so influenced by the other pre-war Germany/WWII/Holocaust movies released around the same time that they didn't judge Good on its own merits? Too bad.

Love your thoughts on "Good" Helen....I feel the same in that so many movies of that genre were released during that time...so unfair.

There were a dozen of us. Not everyone goes to matinees, tho'. (Low price is my reason.) So, I wasn't surprised at the number of people.

I don't expect to see a release for Norway untill after April 17th (the release date for the UK) So I am still optimistic! :D

(But I can't help but check every now and again)

Just came here when JR or rather JW mentioned during an interview when the UK release date was. I am thrilled to bits. But not sure about the Lucius Vs Aragon thing. See unluckily for the Gondor man, he can't use magic. So my galleons...I mean money is on Lucius.
