Christopher Eccleston in 'The Invisible Circus'  
Got around to watching an Eccleston movie I hadn't seen before. Honestly I wasn't looking forward to it because it co-starred Cameron Diaz -- someone I am NOT a fan of -- but I wanted to watch 'em all, so I did. Surprisingly, I thought it was decent and really, really, REALLY liked one aspect of it.

There's a love story that isn't a huge part of the film, that is very sweet, incredibly hot, all despite being utterly wrong for a couple of reasons:

1. The love story is between the main character, Phoebe and Eccleston's character, Wolf/Christopher who is about ten some years older than her 18.

2. They first met when she was 12 and he was romantically involved with her sister!

3. If not married, he's in a serious relationship with another woman with whom he's living.

Taking all of that aside, it really is a sweet love story in the context of the film and really, really hot. Eccleston and Jordana Brewster have some really, really good chemistry. Someone nicely clipped the pertinent section of the film that I plan on treasuring myself as I liked the movie, but not enough to buy it, but I sure want to be able to rewatch this part of the film over and over again. (I've already rewatched it about ten times on the DVD.)

Anyhoo, check it out (and be grateful that this section does not feature the god-awful wig he wears in the flashback scenes) ...



HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My favorite part is the hallway kiss after he gets the hotel key. It's just so romantic and sexy and ooh, makes my toes curl.

Wow! He was young there. I remember when it came out. I was interested to see it but then I keep forgetting to rent it. -_- XD That is a hot scene haha.

Honestly, if you've seen that bit, I don't really think you need to worth renting it. He's in the film more, but this really was the best part. And yeah, he's so young, but really, he's only four years younger than when he did Who. He always has looked young for his age.

Have you watched Jude with CE and Kate Winslet yet? DT has a small part in it as well.

Yes. Ages ago, but unfortunately it's impossible to find now. Depressing as hell movie, but starred two of my favorite actors.

It was seriously depressing. I can upload it for you if you like.

Yeah, I would like to have it. As depressing as it is, he and Kate were amazing in it.

Thank you. :)

Hey, I know you've been sick, but I just was wondering if you do still have this and can upload it for me? :)

I'm definitely not a fan of Cameron Diaz either. But I really want to see this movie.

That clip makes me want to watch it even more. It's very hot. And, yes, they do seem to have great chemistry.

Diaz is actually not in it much, Brewster (who, honestly, is not very good) and CE are in it the most. Overall, the movie is okay, but that section there is so the best. I loved that part.

Gorgeous, just absolutely gorgeous. This is one of the things I actually hadn't got around to in my very haphazard rewatch of his entire back catalogue. Now I don't have to I guess, but this is definately going in my favourites. mmm.

Unless you REALLY want to watch EVERY moment he's onscreen (and I admit it, I COULD NOT watch Lewis and Clark even to just look at him), I'd suggest that if you watched this clip I put up, you've seen all that's really worth seeing in the movie. There's some nice, dramatic acting later on (but, he's against Brewster who can't really, uhm, act) and he does a few other scenes shirtless -- one fairly long -- in the film, but it's accompanied by the god-awful wig, so ....
