For E's birthday, we went to a screening of The Nines, starring Ryan Reynolds and Melissa McCarthy. It was really a pretty neat movie, but it sort of defies description. Without giving it away, anyway. It's one of those makes-you-think movies. There were a few head-scratching moments, but it all came together nicely. If it comes to a theatre near you, it's worth the price of admission.

Afterwards, there was a Q&A with a bunch of the cast and crew, headed up by John August, who I wasn't familiar with before but really enjoyed. The cast and crew were peppered throughout the audience, and we happened to be sitting next to the director of photography. I hope we didn't say anything stupid while we were waiting for the movie to start. Ha. (I'm pretty sure we didn't.) The Q&A was very interesting, so I'm glad we made it to the screening that included it! And then E introduced herself to Melissa in the lobby, which totally made her night (and her birthday), so that was cool.
