Ahoy, Ioan!

Last weekend while watching the series of trailers before Children of Men, seemingly out of nowhere the dear visage of our very own Ioan Gruffudd appeared larger than life--gloriously bedecked in period clothing, looking (and sounding) awfully elegant and heroic (v. Horatio-like), and backed by the rousing strains of "Amazing Grace." I immediately went into raptures and (to my boyfriend's consternation) almost hyperventilated. You've been fairly warned. Watch the trailer for Amazing Grace, the story of an 18th century abolitionist's fight to end slavery, here. Rufus Sewell (Middlemarch, etc.) and Albert Finney costar. --Kim

  1. Yay, yay, yay! Ioan is back in something that is NOT the Craptastic 4! Am off to watch the preview now. Hope I don't pass out and injure myself.

  2. Okay. I just watched it, and those are not even tears that I'm wiping from my eyes . . .

  3. The bagpipes did me in.... -- Amy
