One thing I have noticed from my viewings is that in the part that is the TV news coverage of the town turning Gay, they are interviewing the interracial lesbian couple ("We have families, We have values") Those two are the woman from the Church the Mom could not sell cosmetics to and the other woman is the first customer the Mom and Nora Faye went to see ("Did you bring the new lotion?")

We watched this film on DVD recently at Paul's Don Wroe weekend in Provincetown.  Loved it!  The young actors are appealing, the different take on the play is quite clever, and the music is very enjoyable, too.  It's funny and poignant, and it's nice to see the uptight anti-gay crowd get taken for a wild ride.  ;)

The produces have posted some interesting videos of the back scenes of the making of WTWM (can you imagine Focus Features doing this?)

Thanks for posting more videos, Truman.  I've only had a chance to watch WTWM once since I got the DVD, so I haven't picked up on any of the subtleties yet, but I enjoyed the film very much.  I loved the story, and I was impressed by most of the performers.  I was amazed at some of their voices.  The "scenery" wasn't bad either.

I listened to the soundtrack twice this weekend while on the road, which has given me more incentive to watch the DVD again soon.

I loved this movie, too.  I thought it was very sweet and romantic.  The title of the film, as well as the plot, begs a certain question: if the world were yours, would you make the person of your dreams fall in love with you, or would you allow that person to follow his own course and hope he returns your love on his own?

That is a good point Gary, and I won't give away the answer as to the movie.

I love how Ms. Tebbit sees Timothy at the auditions and says: "Delightful!", when after all "...our intent is to delight."

After watching this I went to the llibrary and checked out the 1930's Max Rheinholt version of A Midsummers Nights Dream, it helped to understand a lot of the references in WTWM.

One of the things I have picked up on was that essentially this is a story about Timothy, but it is also a story about Timothy and Jonathan. From early on we see Jonathan reaching out to him, offering to get him ice for his black eye, and it might be overlooked, but when Jonathan peeks thru the crack in the door to see Timothy's audition, we fall into Jonathan's day dream about the two of them.
