[aroid-l] speaking of movies (was: The Orchid Thief)

i was at the movies last night and saw a trailer for this upcoming movie.  the movie itself is about the screenwriters attempting to turn a book into a movie; it's not about the book per se.  considering that the book was not very scientific (although not a bad read), i don't think the movie will be very satisfying for plant nuts in general.

the movie i saw last night was "far from heaven."  not a bad movie but not terribly successful in what it was attempting to do.  one bit of aroideana: in the living room of the main characters, there was a nice Alocasia sanderiana.  now, i know this is incorrect since the plant would not have been in cultivation in the 1950's.  ok, i really need to get a life if that's what i can find to critique in a movie...  botanical inacuracies...  :-)
