Let The Right One In...


I was bummed when I found out about this movie and that it had already been through the theaters.  I was ecstatic when I found it hanging on by a limb in it's last theater in soho.  I know it is super hip to like vampires right now with the whole Twilight thing (I'm not trashin', I read them all in 24 hours) but this was the movie that should have gotten the attention Twilight did.  Well, let me take that back, I wouldn't recommend it for young viewers or the squeemish(sp?), there is a little blood.  
It is a down right beautiful film. The cinematography was breathtaking, the acting was spot on which doesn't happen very often with child actors and the story was simple.  I liked it.  I guess it comes out on DVD on March 10th if you want to check it out. 

By the way I am always looking for good movies that flew under the radar, if any of you know of some that I might like let me know.  I really do like film.

I knew you would like it. I was surprised when you hadn't heard of it because I know you are a film addict like we are... I guess many people missed it and that's a shame. It is also based on a book with the same name that is on my list for future reading. Wasn't the girl amazing?
