"This tremendous thing has happened between us."

what could be more perfect than watching 'a room with a view' on a rainy evening!

george emerson remains one of my all-time biggest film crushes; he's always grabbing helena bonham carter and kissing her inappropriately, or giving her looks or sending her secret messages that she pretends not to like, all while she is falling in love with him.

well, that, and he's almost the only person in the film who sees things as they really are. and he's a feminist. a male victorian feminist.

and hot. yes, very, very hot.

Just please tell me you didn't see him in Boxing Helena.

this is why i am careful to say that the character-- george emerson-- is my crush-- not julian sands. although i did go through a big julian sands phase, probably as a result of this film, and yes, did indeed see boxing helena. after all-- it was also directed by david lynch's daughter.

anyway, somewhere along the line i decided that sands was not that great of an actor, or he picks bad roles, but i still love the george emerson character to death.
