Girl with a Pearl Earring

Free on cable

Scarlett Johansson looked dead-on, said little and was perfectly great… Colin Firth provided a passion almost predatory… But the real awesome part of this movie was the visual mood. It looked like a painting come to life.

All the pretty light aside, the story seemed a little inflated, yet not enough. The story behind a painting though intrigues me. I like to understand the reasons behind the decisions. The process. A little more grit would’ve made me like it more.

Again, I see a movie and like the idea more than the execution. Now I wonder how it compares to the painting.
