Girl With a Pearl Earring

Since no one was interesting in seeing ESotSM, I went to see GWaPE instead. It was pretty good. You wouldn't know it by the emptiness of the theatre (Kenric and I were the only ones there). Scarlett Johansson was pretty good in it. I'd say she was better in this one that Lost in Translation, even.

I keep thinking they could have done more in the movie, but since it's based on a book I guess that's all that was in the book. I suppose it was also accurate to those days, the relationship between a master and servant, and how much respect a servant is required to show to the master. I guess if I ever see that painting (Netherlands), I will at least be able to see or imagine some sort of meaning behind it.
