Thompson on Hollywood

I'm off to the London Film Festival for a few days. It's my first time covering this fest, and I'm going because they're flying me over. Friday night, they're screening Precious. Gabourey Sidibe is the only one going at this point. Lee Daniels, who is profiled in this Sunday's NYT Magazine, is sick, and may not make it for his Master Class on Saturday.

I've seen some of the pics, but look forward to the debut of fest closer Nowhere Boy, the story of John Lennon's early years, one of 15 world premieres at the expanded fest, beefed up by $2.7 million over the next three years from U.K. Film Council. Other first-looks include Malcolm Venville’s gangster noir 44 Inch Chest, David Morrissey’s Don’t Worry About Me and Penny Woolcock’s 1 Day.
