Still no Jack speaking. What are they trying to do? Save the best for last? That's exactly how I pictured Jack in terms of how infatuated he is with Charlotte. Oh, and David Oyelowo is doing a good job as Yardley.

OMG After seeing this clip I'm really excited to see this movie.

It's supposed to be set in Miami.

then why do they sound like they are from georgia?

I don't know anything about American geography or accent. lol

Wait, I think the book is set in small town("Moat County" fictional place, I guess?) in Florida, not Miami.

LOL. Florida is a BIG PLACE. Where I'm from (South Florida) the natives don't have southern accents, but in Northern and Central Florida the natives do have southern accents. Guess where the Paperboy is set.

i have family up in pensecola and i've travelled a bit around destin etc and i've just never encountered a floridian accent that sounded like that!

Generally, the more south you are, and/or the larger the city you're in, means there are more non-natives: Floridians who moved from down from the North and brought their Northern accents with them, outnumbering Floridians who moved in from rural areas in the state and retain their Southern accent.

Moat County is a small town at a distance from Miami. A Southern accent fits.

(I'm from around Miami, and generally speak with a Northern accent, but I use "y'all," and some vowels go on for too long, surprising myself.)

Watching this clip, I was surprised how perfect they(Nicole and David) are in their roles. I thought Matthew and John were very different from what I imagined their characters to be in the book. Not that they are bad of course. I actually find Matthew's "cool" Ward more appealing than the "shy and socially awkward" Ward in the book. I really want to see how Zac portrayed his character.

By the way, I noticed they changed the brothers' last name "James" to "Jansen".

I watched this this morning, and must've been half asleep, cause I watched it back again and David/Yardley's last line made me laugh far too much!

There is some criticism about the last clip with Zac. They say it's bad editing, and Lee Daniels is too arrogant.
It's a little scary. Especially after the screening of "Lawless" today, and say that is a very strong fili...
But the festival has just begun.

So looking forward to this movie! ..and what the festival has to say, as well.

But such criticism is sobering. This year at Cannes a very tough competition.

:/ let us hope it gets good reviews. I am sure the movie is a gem, regardless.
