In my recent review of the HBO film "Behind the Candelabra," I was so busy deconstructing the big flap over casting as an ironic example of image trumping reality that I proceeded to perpetuate the same crime.
No film is created by a director and his or her cast; as the Writer's Guild constantly reminds us (and for reasons that are now quite clear): "Somebody wrote that."
In this case, that somebody was acclaimed screenwriter
Mr. LaGravenese, please accept my apology. And congratulations on "Behind the Candelabra."
