Arya & Gendry02

Ralph Fiennes & Kate Winslet in a movie together? YES!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I was quite bummed when I read that Nicole Kidman (an actress I like very, very much) had pulled out of The Reader -- a film directed by Stephen Daldry (of The Hours, a wonderfully made, but singularly depressing film ... I honestly believe that there was LITERALLY not one moment of true happiness in the entire film) -- that co-starred Ralph Fiennes. And then, and then, and then ... AAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! I just read that Kidman has been replaced with Kate Winslet (an actress I freaking adore!!!) and my joy is blissful!!!

Ralph Fiennes and Kate Winslet sharing the screen? Perhaps, maybe, this could finally net them BOTH the Oscars they so richly deserve and make me a happy, happy, joy, joy movie watcher as well.


(Yeah, yeah, I know that's Leo with Kate, but it's the only KW icon I have, and none of Ralph. I must rectify that. Switch some of my VM-related icons out for some other fare.)
