Aunt Gussie: Oh, fancy you’re clever, do you?
Sybylla: I rather hope so. I’m done for if I’m not!

Michael: I’m over-anxious because I like you a lot.
Sally: Oh, dear. Michael, what can I say? I haven’t made love in such a long time. My marriage, I told you, was dead. For years. I don’t know why. Yes, I do. It’s the Second Law of Thermodynamics: sooner or later everything turns to shit. That’s my phrasing, not the Encyclopedia Britannica.

I’m not sure how I feel about the name change (I really liked the title Nero Fiddled), but I am so excited for this film. Trailer after the cut.
