  1. Everything crossed. It’s a film that needs to be seen.

  2. Sort of a tangent question here but how come she doesn’t have a blue check mark by her name for Twitter. I thought all the directors and
    VIPs got that distinction from Twitter?

    • Originally, it was something you had to apply for and Twitter decided if you were important enough to get one or not. You could get your agent to apply for you, etc. So not everyone was considered important enough, and you had to ask. At some point in the last two years or so there was a rule change — along with their altered algorithm. Anyone who could prove their identity got a blue tick. This was because they were rating tweets higher who came from verified sources. So Brady probably never applied. It’s really only important because of fake accounts and she is probably not important enough for people to pretend to be her.

    • Or am I being overly optimistic and the above image is just a mock up? 😕

      • I’m totally with you. This is one I could rewatch along the lines of N&S. My suspicion is that this is a mockup and we’re once again in the throes of her SOP, i.e., big promises, long silences, eventually it comes. (I just hope element #4, “with problems,” is absent this time).

  7. My hopes are up. Way up. Way, way up. And it’s going to happen. It is. I know it. I’m thinking positive. She might be beyond slow in carrying through but she does carry through – we had an opportunity (finally) to see it via her website,- she did have a premiere or whatever you may want to call it and she did show it at a film festival. I’m going to be keeping the faith in Candida, lol.

    • Do you know why the download came off of the Blenheim website? It didn’t work for me but it did download for many others no?

      • I believe it did work at the beginning and some were able to watch it twice for the set price, I kept puthing it off because I thought a DVD would be preferable and by the time the DVD turned into a pipe dream the download disappeared! I donated to it and all I have seen is a screen shot showing my user name in the credits.

        • If there is a dvd and not a red herring then, I preface this question that I am not techie savvy at all, would there be a dvd universally compatible to view or would it be distributed like on Amazon only certain regions compatible DVD players?

          • Most computers will let you switch regions, although there may be a limit to the number of times you can switch back and forth.

            • I keep my computer at the setting to watch UK DVD’s and then hook it to the TV to watch on the bigger screen and then my DVD player is for North American DVD’s. That way I never have to worry.

          • You can buy a region-free DVD player — something a lot of us did at the beginning. I think mine cost $35 in 2010. Typically you can only switch the region on your computer 3-5 times before it freezes you where you are.

      • I suspect was that she had totally underestimated the amount of work it would take in terms of customer service. I think she thought they’d put it up and they’d be done with it — but I’m guessing they had something like 20% error issues that had to be resolved, and possibly that the cost of customer service and refunds didn’t come even with the cost of hosting the download.

  8. I really would like to be able to see it a second time. I paid for two times, but couldn’t watch it the second time, first because they ended my rental a day early. Then they restored it, but by the time I had time again, they’d taken it down. Frustrating. Fingers crossed for the DVD, but not a good track record.

    • I never got my second watch either — but I didn’t feel like complaining about it. So I’m really hoping this works out. I’m just not optimistic.

  9. I feel like this is another “Sleepwalker”. Waited so long to get it where I could watch it, finally Amazon offered it up to watch – So I grabbed it. I really want to see this one and if it gets released in the UK or wherever my DVD will handle it. But I hate to say it am not holding my breath, just keeping my eyes and ears open.
