Edward and I just wanted to mention what a special day it was when Charles came to us to ask permission to marry Fiona.

I was hoping so much that The Leisure Class would prove that the group who chose the director from PGL, that they were wise and right. But it was not to be! This PGL was the first time I have watched it all the way through and then saw the film/movie. I was really pulling for other director candidates to be the chosen one(s). I thought the argument that the group struggled with about how Jason kept downgrading being the director unless he could make his changes, that should have been the point to lead them (Matt & Ben) to a different choice! Why did Jason's negativity and superior attitude lead the group to choose him? I am hoping someone will not take that question as rhetorical and let me know what they think the reason is. (Obviously this platform was not a good one for Jason.) So many issues in this film/movie from the title on through the tangled & unsatisfying relationships, showcase only one thing - the director's confused and painful take on life at this point in time. It was not a comedy and it was not a tragedy or any meaningful combination of the two. Jason: although I thought the producer was regularly unbearably arrogant and not helpful when she should have been, her point about how you view women is worthy of your sustained consideration. You are stuck in the old view that MAN is the "true person" and WOMAN is the "other" and by other, it follows, "less." I believe that all the actors and crew knew that this old view was happening, but were determined to do their job well and they did top notch work. Final thought: I hope those other director candidates know that people were/are cheering them on!
