I recommend the film too; I saw it in Santa Monica last Friday. But I am curious about Ellen’s last photo of a lake with palm trees. I don’t remember that in the film. Usually (always?) the view of the backyard “grounds” are a different view; the Santa Monica Mountain range in the far background, expansive grassy tracts mid-range, and Whedon’s backyard-on-a-slope closer in. I can assure the director does not actually own the grassy “grounds” seen, although the film smartly and effectively makes such seem part and parcel of Leonato’s estate.
