Bob and I have been watching the HBO series “John Adams”. It’s superb. Stars Paul Giammatti as John Adams – he’s amazing. It’s hard to believe this guy started his career playing a character called “Pig Vomit” in Howard Stern’s movie “Private Parts”.
Laura Linney is great as well – I love the fact that she doesn’t wear a stitch of makeup for the first 4 hours of the film – and then only because they had to make her look older. She’s just beautiful.
I also think the score to the series is fantastic, written by Joseph Vitarelli. It’s reminiscent of “Last of the Mohicans” – the theme is incredibly moving and inspiring. I find myself humming it all day long.
I know Joanne read the book that this series is based upon many years ago – is it worth reading? And can you loan it to me???
