Penelope was shot in 2006. Directed by Mark Palansky, written by Leslie Caveny. I have seen this film a few times since its release and I just love love love it. I just caught it on tv today and it sparked my interest once again. There is nothing I don't like about the movie. Christina Ricci's performace is captivating. The taste this movie has is impeciable. I would kill to have the character Peneople's room to call my own. Also the sparks between James McAvoy and Christina Ricci have that fairy tale feeling every girl wants. If you haven't seen it. I would. I don't see how someone couldn't like it.
