I'm beginning to think that "Coraline" is destined to take the place of "The Women" (1939), in that I desperately want to see it, feel fairly confident I will love it and find myself repeatedly prevented from seeing it. "Coraline" was being screened tonight at the University, for free, and we were planning on going. Then I fell asleep and and woke up an hour too late.
At this point I think the only solution is to buy the DVD sight unseen, and lock myself in the house until the closing credits. It's either that, or I wait for an ill conceived and poorly cast remake before I finally get to see the original on TCM.
