Wow, when it Rob rains it Rob pours!! So much yummy goodness to choose from this week I had a hard time deciding what to write about. But ultimately, as you can see, Bel Ami was the clear winner. My thought is this: the more we put Bel Ami out there, the more likely we’ll see it in our local theaters!! (fingers crossed)
I read the novel by Guy de Maupassant when I heard that Rob had the role of Georges Duroy. That my friends was a loooooong time ago! But now that we’ve seen the trailer I find it fitting to discuss the novel. Without giving away everything for those of you who have not read it (and I highly recommend you do), I bring you..my review of the novel! (Hopefully, I remember enough to do it justice)
Bel Ami is a novel set in 19th century Paris and follows the rise of Georges Duroy in his quest for fame and fortune. Duroy uses the woman in society to help him speed along the process. I found this storyline to be very similar to the novel Vanity Fair (ironically). Both main characters use sex and power to help them gain money and to rise up society’s ladder. Fortunately, Bel Ami is a condensed version that gives you all the basics and leaves you wanting more! More after the fade to black, that is! Duroy is an amoral character that is willing to do anything to help him survive. And who doesn’t want to see Rob playing that character?!
So without further to do, here is the Bel Ami Trailer!!
Longingly awaiting the release of Bel Ami to theaters,
So ladies, have you read the novel? What are you looking forward to seeing? How scrumptious is that ACCENT?!
