Early Word From The Sweeney Todd Screenings
Yes, Lemonwade is trading on second-hand information about these early press screenings of Sweeney Todd, but still, it makes me very nervous. I know that Stinky and Nathaniel and others of you have commented in the past telling me to get a hold of myself, that Sweeney will be fine. But I'm not nearly as certain. The video clips look precious and (shudder) whimsical, the singing is competent but never more than that, and the lack of heavy Oscar campaigning by the studio (thusfar) seems odd. And it's a difficult piece, tonally, for a movie to manage in the first place. So yeah...we're still officially worried.
