"It's just that for three years Michael has rejected every idea I bring in as being too dark, too expensive, too period . . . not commercial enough. Then you come in yesterday with – no offense – the darkest, least commercial, most expensive period film I've ever heard about, and he loves it."-- Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter (ellipses in original). This is the heroine's reaction to the hero's pitch for a movie about the Donner party.
I'm almost finished with this, just in time for Book Club on Wednesday. I loved it. Great story!
