Colin Firth was wonderful in #MagicintheMoonlight, so hilarious! He also played a Stannis-type character. This is the world we live in, though - the romance was not very convincing and not romantic but people take issue with age difference instead of how weak the script was in this matter, it only worked because of Firth and Stone’s performances. He was playing a highly unpleasant guy but it was still plausible for Stone to have feelings for him, the problem was that the story didn’t really capture the moments they started to look at each other differently - in a real way - and it all felt jarring.
I couldn’t believe that in the scene the film took its title from nothing happened. If I saw a night sky like that and Colin Firth was standing next to me I would have banged him into oblivion. Here - nothing. Where is the romance, Woody? The man was Mark Darcy. Twice. That was just implausible. Why have such a romantic scene if there is no conclusion or even some development for the romance? He took a nap for the love of God!
On the other hand the ukulele playing idiot was so awful in comparison no matter how weak the romance, the ending worked. I judged Stone’s character for not taking that ukulele and killing him with it.
Also, ladies - Colin was shirtless in one scene, but sadly he was submerged in water BUT he wore a tux in another scene and I let out a quiet but sincere ‘wow’ so it was almost worth to pay for the expensive movie ticket to see that.
Is it possible to suffocate due to Dillane hotness because I think this is happening to me right now

His smile kills me! I think the interviewer was fangirling too. She kept giggling. She didn’t ask him about the nudity though.
To be fair she probably didn’t ask him about the nudity because she would pass out :) I would. I’m barely alive after seeing him here and he was wearing clothes :P
Seriously I need to lie down. MY GOD THIS MAN.
Accidentally found this interview with Stephen. Now I’m hyperventilating.
