I saw the preview when I went to see Bedtime Stories (don’t ask). The story seemed intriguing and the animation was beautiful, not to mention the fact that it’s a Focus Feature film (Milk, Traffic, Eternal Sunshine, Lost In Translation) <3<3<3.
When I searched for more information, I knew I HAD TO see this movie. It's based on a story by Neil Gaimen, who is kinda a big deal (in college I almost got addicted to comics thanks to The Sandman). It’s out on Feb 6. Only two more weeks!
Here’s a clip of Amanda performing “Trout Heart Replica” at Bimbo’s last month. She had been writing the song on tour, and finished it the day she was performing in San Francisco. It’s such a lovely, heartbreaking song.
