Color Me Kubrick

Mbabane’s own Richard E. Grant (photo below) appears in the latest John Malkovich film Color Me Kubrick debuting this weekend. It’s hard to know how much of Grant is in the film.
One review I read said Grant was wasted in a role that anyone could play. I think that’s a compliment.
The official media kit for Color Me Kubrick misspells Mbabane as Mbane. I sent a note to one promoter who said she’d pass along the correction. It wasn’t changed in the online version. At least they referenced his hometown. Most actor’s bios aren’t that detailed.
If you can’t get out to see Color Me Kubrick, the folks at Magnolia Pictures have a deal for you to view the picture at home. HDNet Movies will broadcast the picture Friday, March 23 at 7 p.m. and 10:05 p.m. Central. If that doesn’t fit your schedule, they’ll be releasing the picture to DVD on Tuesday, March 27.
So don’t blink, or you’ll miss it in theaters.

FWSCI Filmies Event Reminder

Don't forget we're gathering for the 2 p.m. Sunday, March 25 showing of The Lives of Others at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. (See details above right)
