I just came from The Flying Machine gala at the Toronto International Film Festival. As chance would have it, I sat right next to Heather Graham herself and her boyfriend. I’ll tell you all about it when I wake up — I’m exhausted after a long TIFF-filled weekend! Suffice it to say, though, I was happy I could tell Heather in person, right when the last credit rolled, that it was a really special film.
More to come on the main page later this week. The Monkey got a chance to hold the actual doll from the movie (in red, above), and run her hands dreamily along the magnificent flying machine…. Lucky girl!
So go and take your kids: marvel in the groundbreaking 3D stop-motion animation, learn a ton about Chopin, get lost in the art…. I am a huge fan of this truly special film — so much so that I had a hard time holding back tears at the end. I get emotional when I witness something so intelligent, complex and creative for children. More deets, pics, magical moments to come asap!
