Poor Taylor Swift - always dating gay men. Andrew Garfield's gonna snatch her man

Taylor is straight and loves herself some English or Scottish dick. Harry Styles set the standard back in 2021 and she never returned to dating her countrymen after that.

Why do they redo this every couple of decades or so? The original series was beautiful. I even enjoyed the film version, in some ways more than the series version. Fiennes and Blanchett would be great, and Alwyn is beautiful.

I love the novel and enjoyed the first miniseries and, in its own way, the feature film, but do we really need another go? There are so many other Waugh’s worth doing.

Here's Joe Alywn.
He would make a good Malone in Dancer from the Dance. Those big blue Princess Diana eyes.

Another remake. Another Luca project. How about something and somebody new? I'm OK with Alwyn though. He's at least a fresh face.

Evelyn Waugh came and visited George Cukor and they sat around smoking cigars in Cukor's playpen. Two weeks later they agreed his broken-backed story made an EXCELLENT book and would make a good mini-series but it needs to be cut and strengthened to make a film.
They said Ronald Colman was too old and Deborah Kerr was too young. Tyrone Power was too expensive to hire from Fox and Peter Lawford was equally pretty but inept.
George Cukor said Charles Ryder was too weak to sustain a two hour movie and all that effeminacy would have to be toned down so much that the audience wouldn't know what was happening. And he wasn't interested in the Sebastian Flyte's redemption and that other Catholic theme which mean almost nothing outside Waugh's small circle of fellow-religionists.
Waugh went home but got enough material for a quite different but equally BRILLIANT story called 'The Loved One'!

I'm getting tired of Cate Blankett. She has worn out her welcome playing snooty bitches..
No doubt the costume designer will bedeck Blankett with a parade of fabulous costumes to mark the passage of time. But her character is actually a monastic mono-toned colourless person who eschews glamour because Jesus Christ demands it.

I loved the first mini-series (anyone have a link to stream, no Netflix or Hulu).
But Ben Whishaw in the film was the best I can imagine.
I don't think straight actors, no matter how skilled or talented, can play complicated gay characters very successfully.
|by Anonymous||reply 36||11/05/2020|
The current generation will perceive this story as anti-gay. Sebastian supplies some temporary adolescent glamour but the shiftless hero flings him aside.
Sebastian is flung away and crumples into an emotionally-crippled, hopeless alcoholic (because he doesn't follow the teachings of Jesus Christ).

I stand corrected, R19. But you can see how this remake would sound like a terrible idea cooked up in the mind of one of our trolls with too much time on his hands.

So right up Guadagnino's alley then. Lots of opportunity to refrain from showing anything too gay.

R48 It was Cara, and yes, she knew. I love that character and she’s underused.
Why is this remake necessary? The 1981 miniseries will forever be the end-all for me. It was perfectly cast and Anthony Andrews is mesmerizingly beautiful as Sebastian. Jeremy Irons doesn’t do a thing for me personally but he’s an impeccable Charles.
At least Luca isn’t trying to shove two actors who rhyme with Spammer and Balamet down our throats. With Dakota J. as Julia.

Yes. Jeremy Irons was in his early 30s, and even that was borderline given that Charles is something like 19 when he meets Sebastian.

I always loan out my DVD's of the original mini-series as a test to whether I'm going to like someone or not. My boss only watched a few episodes and said it was "too 80's" (crossed her off). I'm surprised that I liked the film version - it was a different, more explicit, take, which was interesting.
