RE: Marriage
"Show that Lorna isn't all innocence, that she implicitly approved of Peter's behaviour."   Not so much approved of it as she was turned on by the passion that motivated it. This approach would give Rachel the complicated character that she wants to play.  More

RE: Marriage
I don't mind at all if the movie takes liberties with their ages.  In fact, I like it that there's such an age difference between Rachel and Pierce and Chris.  The 'other woman' is often younger anyways.     "Maybe that's why she fell for him enough to marry him -- the fact that he's not only dishy and very self-confident (unlike Barty), but also that he wanted her that badly. Barty wanted her badly, but he didn't put up a fight when she wanted to end it." More

RE: Marriage
BTW, the two guys in the book are not as old as Chris and Pierce. I think they're meant to be in their early 40s, which today = Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp. Just thought I'd mention that since, if Rach isn't going to transform herself into an older looking woman, there's going to be a whole other thing going on in the movie that isn't going on in the book.   Ingrid was Peter's girlfriend when they were 18-21 and a group of them, including his friend Barty were staying at a chateau i More

RE: Marriage
Yes, that was very good.  Spine-tingling, and not in a nice way.  What a sicko.   Who is Ingrid?  And do you think the film will end exactly where the book ended, or do you think it'll explore their relationship post-murder?  I hope so.  At least give Lorna something to do other than look fetching.   More

RE: Marriage
Yeah, but the average movie-goer isn't as savvy as book readers. Sometimes, they can be one and the same (like the three of us), but I think keeping it simple, may be the best thing in marketing the movie.. I can see people now, "What a stupid title!" "What the hell is a roundabout?" "Why'd they give the movie such a long name??". I think "Marriage" is a silly title too and I hope it's changed to something else, but I don't think "Five Roundabouts To Heaven" will help sell the movie.. I don't w More

RE: Marriage
WOW.. Sounds alot like Agatha Christie's "Curtain".. Same concept, kind of..  Well, it seems that some people have a way of manipulating situations that drive people to kill themselves, which in turn can be construed as murder in some people's eyes.. This was obviously a fierce competition for the narrator. Looks like poor Barty didn't even know he was in a contest.. Golly.. "Better at everything, including murder.." WOW.. Whatever happened to Barty's wife? Did she know he tried to kill he More

RE: Marriage
***MAJOR SPOILERS***         "I wanted no more of the chateau, and knew that I would never visit it again. I had thought that it would hold for me nothing but the tender memories of youthful happiness, that here Bartels and I, and Beatrice, and Ingrid, and all rest of that cheerful crowd could meet within the compass of my mind, and be reunited for an hour or so, and talk and walk and laugh and love as we had done in the days gone by.   "But it didn't work More

RE: Marriage
So I guess Lorna remains an innocent to the end?  She obviously wouldn't have married him if she new what a monster he was, what he did to his friend.    "The last few paragraphs are chillingly wonderful. I guess you want me to quote them?"   That would be lovely.   More

RE: Marriage
L: McAdamsFan Oh, I get it.  Barty commits 'suicide' with a little assist from his dear 'friend.'  Nice.  And what about Lorna?  Does she hook up with the friend at the end?  Do they live unhappily ever after?  Did the friend get what he wanted?  Was she worth the pain?  sp; The friend tells us that Lorna is now his beloved wife. She's what he wanted and would do anything to get. But what seemed so worth the trouble was getting what poo More
