the romantics

I predict that I will enjoy this film for the following reasons:
* the interiors (wallpaper, antiques, trophy rooms!)
* the exteriors (cedar-shingled grey beachiness!)
* the cars (panelled station wagon!)
* the clothes (sweaters, silk and stripes!)
* the girls (Candice Bergen, Anna Paquin, Dianna Agron)
* the boys (Adam Brody, Elijah Wood, Josh Duhamel)
* it's an ensemble piece that gathers old friends together for a big event in the tradition of The Big Chill or St. Elmo's Fire
* a vulnerable Katie Holmes gazing pensively at an ocean pining for lost love (it's Capeside redux!) almost makes you forget that whole TomKat thing ever happened...
