Kathryn Did you see there's a film coming out based on the book? It looks gorgeous!

Lee Oh Wow! The trailer was great but I wish they wouldn't show quite so much of the movie. I'll have to hurry up and read the book so I can see the movie. Thanks Kathryn!

Kathryn Oh, sorry! I didn't think about there being spoilers in the trailer. I guess I always think of it being just a "sneak peak" but I agree sometimes they do show too much. I hope it won't have spoiled your reading of the book.

Lee No worries Kathryn! I actually watched it with the sound off so I wouldn't be able to hear anything. I'm sure by the time I read the book I'll forget everything.

Kathryn Good, I will hope so!

I just think it's so beautiful to SEE the dancing in the trailer. I will be curious to learn how he talks about the feeling of dance through his story--using words rather than the visuals we could see in the film.

Lee No kidding! Wasn't the dancer fabulous?!? I can't wait to see this movie!
