  1. Of Ghyllenhal: “His next – and only, thus far – big screen outing is sure to court yet more controversy, however.”

    Why do Brokeback Mountain and The Day After Tomorrow not count? Or, indeed, Zodiac? Just curious…

    Or do you mean that it’s his only definite next outing…?


  2. You see, that's what I get for writing stuff after a week of having no sleep topped off by a bottle or so of wine…

    "His next big screen outing is also his only one so far announced" probably makes more sense.

  3. As far as I'm concerned Prodi's got three great achievements to his name: he's still there, he's succeeded in welding the Ulivo into a single party (bar a couple of dissenters) and the broader Unione coalition's more secure than it was when he was elected. The centre-Left has taken power and shown that it wants to keep it. In Italy, after Berlusconi, I think that's a decent year's work. What they do in the next twelve months will be the test.
