Strutting Our Stuff on the Red Carpet - The Water Diviner

I love living in Dublin.  It has all the amenities of a world class city without the hassles associated with being too large.  For example, Dublin runs the annual Jameson Dublin International Film Festival and many of the screenings are star-studded events.  In other cities like San Francisco or London, such events might sell out within minutes.  This year in Dublin, I got to walk down the red carpet and attend a screening with Russell Crowe.  The Water Diviner was a poignant story of an Australian man whose three sons went off to fight in World War I never to return.  He travels to Turkey to find out the truth about what what happened to them in the trenches of Gallipoli.  We recently toured Flanders Fields in Belgium to commemorate the 100th anniversary of WWI and this movie brought the history and extreme magnitude of loss to life for us again.

After the film, Russell came to the front of the theatre for a Q and A with the festival organizers, charming the audience with his answers to questions about his directorial debut.  He spoke for about 10-15 minutes before dashing off for a live appearance of the Late Late Show.

How cool is that?  At a minimum, I've improved my own Bacon number to 3 in the process. :-)
