You Must Watch This Movie!

I just watched this amazing movie called The Fall.  I hadn’t even heard of it before but stumbled across it and I am in love with the little girl in this movie.  She is AMAZING and ADORABLE.  Lee Pace from Pushing Dasies is also in it and I think he is a revelation of an actor.  The story is set at a Los Angeles hospital in the 1920s, Alexandria is a child recovering from a broken arm. She befriends Roy Walker, a movie stunt man with legs paralyzed after a fall. At her request, Roy tells her an elaborate story about six men of widely varied backgrounds who are on a quest to kill a corrupt provincial governor. Between chapters of the story, Roy convinces Alexandria to scout the hospital’s pharmacy for morphine for him. As Roy’s fantastic tale nears its end, Death seems close at hand.  The only thing I have left to say is I was weeping at the end.  Let me know if you do watch this wonderful movie and tell me your thoughts.


  1. I’ve heard of this. I thought it sounded good too but I haven’t seen it.

  2. Thanks for the recommendation! I adore Lee Pace. He was also in a short lived but completely wonderful series called Wonderfalls. I’ll see if I can watch this movie this weekend. 😉

  3. Ahhhh I too love this movie! I’ve been telling everyone I know to see it! I really like the very first scene with the sepia tone and slow motion!
