A Movie Non-Review

Via AfterEllen, Djuna Barnes' 1928 book about her Parisian lesbian social circle, The Ladies' Almanack, is being made into a movie:

Aren't we all a little bit that woman in the middle, stuck between understanding a Djuna Barnes plot and deciding whether to enter an awkward threeway?

I must watch it immediately, for entertainment and blog reasons.

But also, I admit that I read Barnes' Nightwood and understood maybe 10% of it.  That is to say, post-modern literature is probably not for me.  I did, however, greatly enjoy Andrea Weiss' more literal account of the Paris scene in her book, Paris Was a Woman.
