I watched the trailer for the new Stepford Wives film on Apple.com, and while the whole thing looks really glossy and fun, I'm pissed off that it seems to have been turned into - at least, it's being billed as - a comedy. I saw the original film ages and ages ago, and can't remember the exact tone, but I read the book a couple of years ago, and it's really scary. It's also quite explicitly feminist - the horror comes from the fact that the women are being turned into these bland robots, and it's definitely presented as horror. But now, apparently, women being robbed of their personalities and interests and turned into "perfect" babes is just comedy fodder. Bah.
On a much more charming note, my small neighbour Leon just called on the door and presented me with his portrait of Ju Ju, which shows her in two poses: "siting and roning". Awww!
