and I were treated to the Virginia premier of Obselidia on Christmas night, complete
with door to door service by one of the stars. Okay, so our movie
star neighbor actually picked us up at the mailbox only because we were
afraid we wouldn't be able to get our car out of the driveway with all

The movie hit close to
home, and I almost felt like I should be taking notes for the blog at
times. As Mark likes to say, Obselidia had a lot of heart, and it
definitely would have been one of my favorite movies of the year even
if our friend hadn't starred in it. If you'd like to see a
romantic comedy where intellectuals are real, well-rounded people
rather than superficial cliches, Obselidia
is your best bet.
Plus, honeybees are characters!
Obselidia showed at Sundance and
various other film festivals, but you can't see it anywhere at the
moment. Our neighbor begged a copy off the producer, mostly
because all of his friends (like me) kept bugging him about how we
could see the movie. For those of you without that inside track,
you might try adding the film to your netflix queue and hoping it will
come out on dvd soon.
