did my heart love til now...


i need some folks to see this with me this saturday. 3:45 p.m. at lincoln center. i saw this 9 times in theater when it came out in november of 96. i've always been a touch obsessive. this movie inspired my catholic art collecting. fueled my love for claire danes and leonardo dicaprio. and was the first movie i ever saw with my husband. we were with a huge group of people and every girl in the audience gasped when the screen zoomed in on romeo for the first time.

another fun fact...the song i walked down the aisle to was the instrumental version of "kissing you". it is also the song my husband played when he proposed to me...as he was quoting the scene where romeo first speaks to juliet at the capulet's party. swoon.

Oh,I wish it was playing in Chicago! I would make my boy go see it every night it was there, and I am so lucky...he probably would! <3

I love the proposal story, seriously, I get a little teary eyed when I hear about moments like that.

I know I gasped when I first saw Leo's Romeo. And I forgot Paul Rudd was Tybalt, <3.

O, what a perfect song! I think I would have bawled the whole way down.

And swoon indeed--Eddie clearly knows how it's done.

I was watching this film last night for about the 5th time this week, I completely adore it! And I really want kissing you to be a song at my wedding, so it's really odd reading your post

love the blog though :)
