The Los Angeles Film Festival opens tonight. Ten days of movie goodness. And free drinks. Well, not so much for me this year as I decided to forgo getting a pass. The event is primarily being held in Westwood this year, which is fairly inconvenient for me. It was wonderful in previous years when it took place at 8000 Sunset complex, with screenings held primarily at the Laemmle Sunset 5 and the DGA Theatre Complex. Parking was not too expensive and the location was so easy for me to get to from work or home.

So, I'm a little bummed that I won't be going to as much of the festival this year, but I will definitely be taking in some screenings. E has a pass that includes some tickets for certain films and events, including tonight's opening movie The Devil Wears Prada, followed by a party. Of course a lot of the films I want to see overlap with other interesting-sounding ones. There are a couple of things I missed at Sundance that I hope to catch.

Maybe I'll see you in Westwood.

That sounds like a lot of fun.

For The Devil Wears Prada, I'd feel pressured to look really fabulous since there is a party. Do you know what you're wearing yet?

Ha! Ha! I do not tend to ever dress in a way that could be considered "fabulous." I don't even own any "fabulous" clothing. Especially not any name brands.

I see commericals for that movie and feel like I have seen it...Ann Hathaway (or something like that lol) goes from frumpy/outcast to "princess" hum?? LOL

Jodi said...

Dianna: exactly. You've seen many, many times in different movies. The most I can say is that the movie was kind of cute...I know a lot of people who will actually like it...but I found it pointless, hightly predictable, and not much to write home about. It also seemed like an odd choice for opening the festival with, but what do I know?
