Overheard at Booth 5

1: I saw "The Reader" the other night, pretty good movie.

2: Isn't that an Opera book?

1: Yeah.

2: Then doesn't that mean it's depressing as all hell?

3: Oh God we don't need another movie about the Holocaust, really now do we?

1: You guys don't get it - this has got Kate Winslet in it.

3: Well, THAT's all I need to know!

1: And the amazing thing is, there was this one scene in there, where she's sitting on the edge of the bed, and I swear I had seen that shot before and I spent all night thinking about it, and I finally this morning woke up knowing where I'd seen it before - Edward Hopper. There is one definitely, but possibly TWO Edward Hoppers that looked like that shot - I mean, MAN! Edward Hopper knew Kate Winslet before she was even BORN! Isn't that cool?

3: Who's Edward Hopper?

2: Who's Kate Winslet?
