I'm was excited to see an email in my Inbox with the title 'Guest Spot'
from my beautiful, older and wiser sister Jenny.
She has been having a 'moment' with James Spader for the last few months, and has put it
into words for me to share with you. Hopefully, by penning this post, she'll be able to
move on from James, and I won't have to hear about it every phone call.
It's been ages since I had a guest post, so without further ado, I'll pass it over to Jen!
MY JAMES SPADER RETRO ROMANCE
Ever since James Spader returned to our small screens this year in The Blacklist, I have been having myself a little retro romance. The romance is completely one sided and involves me re-watching his movies from the 80’s and 90’s and falling in love with him all over again. Who can forget his nasty portrayal of Steff in Pretty in Pink? I also loved his subdued, disturbed portrait of Graham in Sex, Lies and Videotape. However my favourite would have to be White Palace. White Palace is a romantic drama released in 1990 starring James Spader and Susan Sarandon. The film also stars Kathy Bates and Jason Alexander in supporting roles. The plot revolves around a 27 year old widower who begins an affair with a 40 something waitress. The script was written by Glenn Savan and he also wrote the book. If you are after a romantic read, or a nostalgic night in, I would definitely recommend this book or film to rekindle your own retro romance.
