 My friend and former co-worker RH gave me a gift card to Sundance Cinemas, as a winter holiday gift. Which was totally nice and unexpected. Since I don't get up to the U District much anymore, I hadn't used it. Movie day yesterday was a delayed birthday celebration thing. (April 11 was Beauty & the Beast at Big Picture. I could deal with a crowd, so I opted out of the Chin Music Press event at Elliot Bay Book Co.)

A favorite thing for me is to see a movie without knowing any details about it. The choices were three with show times around 4:30, with a 5-something heist movie as a failsafe. I chose based on the small poster images on the show time screen at the ticket counter. Tommy's Honour had a dude with a golf club. The other two movies has smiling girls and glowy sunshine lighting, but the title Gifted interested me most.

I had no idea it was an Octavia Spenser, Chris Evans movie. Woot!

It is a bit of a glowy sunshine movie. But it has a one eyed cat, and the classroom boredom resonated with me.

It does make me think that a story of a "gifted" non-genius needs to be told. When Frank says he learned a problem solving technique (Trachenberg method) at 8, I thought we were going to see how this sharp first grader's dad was also gifted but had been overlooked because, poor. 

I also wondered if Evans and Spencer were going to get married and be a family all together.

This is why I have so many WIPs...

I think a story about being the smartest kid in your class but having to realize that's just smarter-than-average without being special out in the world could be interesting. But I might be biased, since I've known quite a lot of those people.

I don't say this enough: I love your story brain.

Yes, I've a had couple -- both from Doctor Who fandom days (even before I was on LJ): [personal profile] scarfman and [personal profile] daibhidc. ... I think a bunch of people from my "f'list" may still be migrating, or giving up on LJ altogether and just sticking to Facebook.
