Wow. Saw the NATIVITY STORY movie and loved its elegant simplicity. You won’t be disappointed.
You know what? I’m actually glad I didn’t see the movie before I wrote the novelization, because I made some radically different choices for some scenes. I think it’s nice to have the variety. (I’ll explain why I made those choices when we have the BOM discussion.)
And the premier–wow again. Will post lots of pics when I get back into town, but I’m sitting in my Beverly Hills hotel and it’s 2 a.m. my time, so I’m going to go to sleep. But I met the director, Catherine Hardwicke, Gary Busey, and got a picture of “Elizabeth” , played by Shohreh Aghdashloo. Said hello to the screenwriter, Mike Rich, and met his lovely wife.
And “Joseph” was there–trust me, he does a fabulous job in the movie. An amazing young actor.
Lots of details and pics when I get home. Stay tuned!
