Also, there aren't a lot of unattractive young actors in the business; certainly not ones who are going to convince investors to help fund a film.
This guy likely should have played Keats:



If they would have made the film a few decades ago:

Just my opinion and I wasn't chastising anybody for having it in their list. I just feel that they took a real, and very unique story and kind of tailored it to period drama conventions. Again, I really liked it though as it was beautifully shot, well-acted, etc.

Normally, I'm not a fan of period dramas, but I felt this one had a deft balance between romanticism, beautiful composition, and relatable character drama that made it a compelling film. It was able to avoid the usual "forbidden love by class difference" trope through its strong characterizations of the two romantic leads and Paul fucking Schneider.

The period/costume drama is a sub-genre that I kind of want to get into, but really have no idea how to approach it. Howards End just hit Criterion, so I might go that route.

We're just fucking around.

I think that there's some validity to what you're saying, but I also think you're exaggerating a tad as well.

At least we can all agree on some of the film's strengths.

I'll also just go ahead and say that posting a photo of Stoltz in Mask is funny.

Paul Schneider for the win, by the way. I'm talking Bright Star and beyond.

Finding out he's the lead in All the Real Girls along with Zooey has shot it up towards the top of THE FLIX! queue.

I'm only familiar with him from this and his small part in Away We Go, which was one of the only watchable parts of that piece of garbage.

I've been babbling about All the Real Girls for years, long before Zooey was on anyone's radar.

I've yet to see Away We Go. How could it be bad, Jim is in it!?!?!!?@!$R#WEWF2rp[oewfjd!!!!!

Schneider is pretty good on Parks and Recreation. Although he's a bit more of a straight man so he often gets outshined by Ansari, Poehler, Plaza, Offerman, etc.

Gold star for you. David Gordon Green's a guy whose filmography I could knock out in a weekend, too. Only seen Pineapple Express.

You mean Captain America???

That's the toughest job in all of comedy, too.

Yeah, me too. Saw that in the theatre and have been a DGG cheerleader ever since. Same with Schneider. And Zooey, at least until she married you-know-who.

Interesting choice of words.

Fucking DGG better reign it back in and get back to doing films that don't have Danny McBride in them, cos 2 in a row is 2 too many.

Speaking of McBride, one cool little detail I noticed in Up in the Air the second time around was how Clooney placed the cardboard cutout in each picture. It was always off to the side, emphasizing the location of the picture, while all of the other pictures that were seen on the picture map were closer to the camera and right in the center. You may be an asshole, Jason Reitman, but that's a sly little move.
