We've lately been pretty satisfied with the movie interpretations of our favorite books (No Country for Old Men and um... well we can't think of anything else, but we heard Jane Austen's Emma is getting remade into Lil Mama's "Lip Gloss" video). And we're DYING to see the film version of Jose Saramago's broad, stunning Nobel Prize winner Blindness, about a blindness epidemic and the subsequent apocalyptic breakdown of society. Realllll talk. It's directed by Fernando Mereilles (City of God!) and stars Mark Ruffalo, Julianne Moore, Danny Glover, Sandra Oh, Alice Braga and most importantly GAEL GARCIA BERNAL. Today we got the trailer in the email and basically passed out from awesome.
