'86 Rabbit

A FANGirl's Forkstress of Solitude

And I’m back!

So, I’m back and ready to discuss Bill Condon directing Breaking Dawn. I never saw Dreamgirls, but it obviously did very well. Who could forget Jennifer Hudson jumping from American Idol to the big screen and winning a Golden Globe and an Oscar her first time out? Only 15 people, including Hudson, have won Oscars for their debut films BTW. While Hudson is undoubtedly an amazing performer, it speaks highly for Condon’s direction that an actor with so little experience could be directed to an award-worthy performance.

The only other film by Condon that I can comment on is Kinsey. I thought it was well done. Most notable here is the portrayal of pain and discomfort that can be caused by sexual relationships that are outside the norm. More important is the message that just because the relationship may be outside the norm doesn’t mean it’s necessarily wrong. The skill with which Condon handled this could come in handy with Breaking Dawn. Now if only he can put some of his writing experience (Dreamgirls, Kinsey, Chicago) to use and “improvise” during filming.
