I'd say it gallops. ...

...the first movie I saw after BBM, several months later, was Thank You for Smoking, which was palatable only because it was so different.


Wasn't there a trailer for TYFM on before Brokeback showed?

My first time at the movies was when my daughter took me to see it as a Christmas present in the week between Christmas and New Years. She was alarmed as we were leaving because I think that was the first time she had ever seen me cry.

What a nice present! Did your daughter know you'd kept the New Yorker with the short story on your bedside table for all those years?

I don't remember that.  I vaguely remember there being one trailer in particular that was 'odd'......and on DCF someone asked what you were going to miss when Brokeback left the theaters.  One person replied that they would not miss seeing that particular trailer.

lol

Yes, she was aware and I had lent it to her because she was interested in reading the story. That was an eventful year for her, her senior year in high school. She was sweet on a boy in her class and he told her he was gay. After initially being heartbroken, she became friends with him and started a diversity club at the school. It was a very conservative school and parents objected but she stood up for it, called a schoolwide meeting which I attended. One of the teachers read some of the hate mail he'd gotten. She received an award at the end of the year as an outstanding leader.

But the reason she was interested in the movie was that she read an article in, I think, the New York Times, about how the movie was actually changing the perception of gay people in America. My daughter was actually quite progressive before she got married.

Oh, and Chuck, remember that trailer about the British man who suddenly decided he wanted to swim the English Channel, and how upset his wife was about it? I never want to see that trailer again for the rest of my life! I had that thing memorized!!
