    A pretty great vibe

    I’ve been back a little over a week now, and I’m still taken with Seattle. Despite the rough start getting there, I enjoyed a great weekend away exploring a new town, trying new restaurants and seeing a few new films. A guest of the Seattle International Film Festival, I was lucky enough to be put up in a room right downtown, and before long I had my bearings about me and made my way to Pike Place Market. If that’s not your first stop when you get to Seattle, I’m pretty sure you’re doing it wrong.

    Watch This: THE FAULT IN OUR STARS

    I have to come at this post from a few different angles. Well, two angles. One as a straight review – I got a chance to see the film while I was in Seattle. The other is as a former Indianpolis-ite (?), specifically one who worked the city’s film scene for 8 years. With that in mind, I’m not exactly sure where to start this write-up, so let’s start at the least-complicated point of entry: a quick review of the film. But wait. No. That doesn’t quite work, because you need some back story on the film and its production before I get to that. OK, we’ll start there.
