Oh boy! I am so excited to talk about these with someone. They are a little obscure, but I love them, and can’t wait for others to love them as well.
First most important question: Which did you like best?
Was it Quarantine, with the bossy church lady and grumpy old bachelor?
Or Hurrying, with the sweet easy going farm woman who unconsciously charms the visiting city man?
Or Cecil, with the shy dreamy spinster?
I am 100% Cecil. I love that story, our heroine is so sweet and her motivations are so clear, and the hero is so charming at the end and clearly in love with her at first sight.
Second question, have you read Montgomery before? I’m just curious, I think of her as a universal taste, but I am surprised by how some people just don’t know her at all.
Third question, which of these short stories would you remake, if you could only make one, into an Indian film?
I already wrote my Cecil remake (Tabu as heroine, Shahrukh as hero, obviously). But I am tempted at the thought of Quarantine with one of the older actresses, or hurrying as kind of an unconventional love story.
