And now I’m going to give you some more good advice.
Dean Spanley (2008) is one of the last films made by Peter O’Toole.
Although it was highly acclaimed around the world, it never really caught on in America. In fact, they never even released a DVD of it in the format that will play on American DVD players.
Are you willing to watch it? Wait before you answer; it’s important that you don’t watch the trailer or read ANYTHING about it before you watch it. There are 2 reasons for that:
1. If you read the premise of the movie, you’ll say,
“That’s just stupid. I’m not going to watch that.”
2. If you know what it’s about, it ruins the surprise. And everything
that’s ever been written about this movie contains spoilers.
I’m now going to tell you everything you need to know:
1. The movie is set in Edwardian England (1901 – 1914)
2. It starts slowly, moves slowly. This is a movie about the acting more than the plot.
3. About the time you start thinking, “Maybe I should bail and watch something else,” its starts getting interesting.
4. It has wine.
5. It has dogs.
6. You can stream it from Netflix or from Amazon.com
Now remember what I told you:
if you do this, you need to do it blindly. And you must do it THIS WEEK.
After you’ve done it, please tell Br’er Whittington that you watched it. He’s making a list and he needs to hear from you before midnight on June 15, 2014. Daniel@WizardAcademy.org
That’s all I’m going to tell you.
