& the slipper still fits


Mr. Fassbender, we must stop meeting like this. Soon all your fans will have seen their favorite parts and might not make it to the movie theatre. I think this scene redeems the acting quite a bit. I'm holding off total judgement until I see the full movie. Because I see something in this scene that I want to grasp a hold of. I'm hoping (and what I'm willing in my dreams), is that Fassbender is approaching the whole role with a different motive other than broody, dejected loner. While the proposal scene was poor, they generally tend to be in adaptations. The 2006 versions with Ruth Wilson and Toby Stephens was gravy, dear reader: they don't make scenes like that often. And most of it was due to Ruth's fearlessness with the role.
