Comment: Re: SHK 21.0398 Gnomeo and Juliet
I have communicated poorly. My comment, "After you watch it and respond in
outrage, consider this: It might be better than some of the productions of the
play that you've seen," was not intended to say that outrage would be the
appropriate response. Rather, since we do have purists among us, I intended to
suggest that the movie might be better than any number of dismal but "pure"
productions of R&J that I've seen. I expect I'll be highly entertained by this
movie. I've had another reminder that the "tone" I was thinking in as I wrote
that comment was not transferred in the words I used. Sorry about that.
