1996 Telluride Film Festival Diaries
August 30, 1996
Okay, I admit it: I'm chicken. That's why I opted to fly into Colorado
Springs and drive across southern Colorado to Telluride. Monarch Pass and
Royal Gorge certainly deserve their majestic titles and make me wish I had
opted for the rental car with the bigger engine. Five hours through some
of the most breath-taking scenery that has graced this country is going
to make watching movies difficult by comparison. But Fine Line, Columbia
and Miramax are determined to make it easier for me. "Twelfth Night"
, the most popular of Shakespeare's comedies has been adapted to the screen
by Trevor Nunn and stars Helena Bonham Carter, Richard E. Grant, Nigel Hawthorne,
and Ben Kingsley. That gives me something to look forward to! Word on "Fly
Away Home" is to disregard the hokey commercials and just enjoy the
movie. Oscar winner Anna Paquin is back from Down Under to charm us as
she did in "The Piano". Jeff Daniels and Dana Delany will have
to be at the top of their acting form to keep this talented youngster from
stealing every scene.
