Let the Right One In

I started hearing raves about this film as it made its way through the festival circuit, and yet we didn't make the effort to go see it during its brief local theatrical run. We finally sat down to watch it this past weekend and it's worthy of all the praise it has garnered.

It's a refreshing take on the vampire tale, dare I say one of the most heat warming vampire films to arise from the ashes of the post Anne-Rice-alyptic era.

I enjoyed the film so much that I just bought the book (translated from the original Swedish) and can't wait to dive into it as well.

If you're not sold, check out the trailer, but better yet, take this recommendation on faith and rent, borrow or buy this movie before you see or hear much more about it. It's richly rewarding.
