I haven't written my own religious scriptures yet but when I do that will be in there. Our dear Heath Ledger - lover of Michelle, father of Matilda, lover of Jake, occassional nemesis of britpopbaby because he agreed to be in The Patriot (only kidding, I'm totally over it and it's propaganda peddling ways) and 10 Things I Hate About You (stop turning Shakespeare plays into dumbass teen movies set in American high schools! only kidding, I'm totally over it and it's Julia Stiles peddling ways) - has a new film coming out called Candy (not to be mistaken with Hard Candy, I should think). Being an independent film it's not getting a whole lot of press so if Jake Watch can spread the word to it's dedicated army of 20 readers then it damn well shall! Up the little people!
The following words are brought to you by ~dkbb~ :
Oh, before you read that Jake Watch has some sexy new affiliates; Jake Gyllenhaal Fanlisting, The Sarsgaard Soiree (inspired by your very own Jake Watch) and Heath Ledger Central. There are also new Buttons up - if anyone wants to help make more, please let me know! Back to Heath Ledger...
Support the Movie CANDY (starring Heath Ledger & Abbie Cornish) - Join the “Addiction!”
So many of us Gyllenhaalics are also Heath Ledger fans, so I thought this blog would be a good place to get the word out about Heath’s latest film release, Candy. Candy is an independent Australian film by Neil Armfield based on the book by Luke Davies (a great read, by the way), and starring Heath Ledger, Abbie Cornish, Geoffrey Rush, Noni Hazlehurst, and Tony Martin. It is best described as a love triangle about a hero, a heroine, and heroin.
Since it is a small film with a small budget, wide release is not going to happen without a lot of public interest and support. That’s why I’m here…to ask for your support for this film. I am part of an organization called “Addicted To The Movie Candy” (ATTMC for short). We are working, mainly via the Internet, to get the word out about Candy. We have an informational web site - which includes a Release Dates calendar - (http://www.addictedtothemoviecandy.com/); a blog, an image gallery; and a forum where we discuss the movie, the book, and our ATTMC projects. The blog, gallery, and forum are all linked from the web site. (And for those of you who visit my blog – Musings on the Journey – you will also find Candy and ATTMC information there.)
ThinkFilm, the North American distributor for Candy, will consider giving the movie a wider release if they see a real interest in it. You can help prove to them that we all want to see this wonderful movie by visiting the web site and the blog, and by registering on the forum. As the number of web site and blog visitors rises, and the number of registered forum members rises, ThinkFilm will begin to understand the widespread support and desire for Candy.
Please visit ATTMC, read about the movie, the players, the projects – and join our “addiction!”
Thanks so very much to britpopbaby for her support of ATTMC (which has been linked on her “Links” page for a while now) and for allowing me to post this “guest blog entry.”
I will now step down off my soapbox and return you to your regular programming….
Humbly yours,~dkbb~ (aka Miss Moneypenny)
