Driving down a snowy road.

Our movie star neighborMark 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 of the snow....

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.

I suspect that the more people who put it on their netflix queue, the more likely netflix is to get it.
