So I was told by MANY of you to watch North and South. I put it off forever because a friend of mine told me to read the book and I try to always read the book first.
Well, life was too busy for fitting in the Elizabeth Gaskell book so I went and picked up the film. I folded a lot of laundry while watching this story. Something I can't do with a book in hand.
The story was interesting.
The film was entertaining.
Poor John's heartache was palatable.
The part at the end when they FINALLY get together...EEeeehh. It was OK. (I'm sure there are people shouting at their computers right now. Sorry 'bout that.)
You can see John Thornton in the Sharp Dressed Man video. His mom is straightening his tie at 0:27 and you can see him again at 1:46.
John Thornton (aka Richard Armitage) is a handsome man. I mean look at those eyes.
and a talented actor.
Did you know that both Richard and, the last HGinD, J.J. Feild were both in Captain America. I'm starting to want to watch that film, more and more.
Richard is also going to be in The Hobbit. I will DEFINITELY be watching that film. Not just because Richard and Martin Freeman are in it but because I think that Jackson did a WONDERFUL job with The Lord of the Rings and I'm excited to see what he can do with The Hobbit. Honestly, The Hobbit isn't one of my favorite books (where as TLofTR is) but it should be a fun film.
Richard is playing Thorin Oakensheild, the leader of the dwarves. This should be interesting.
I think a segment called Hot Guys in Chainmail is worth looking into ;)
