“Instant Chemistry, Belated Dance Number”

A fantastic article in the New York Times, written by Margy Rochlin:

In this moment, as the three joked easily with one another, it’s not hard to see why Mr. Webb knew immediately that Ms. Deschanel, who exudes a deadpan, off-kilter confidence, and Mr. Gordon-Levitt, who is subdued and earnest, would have a quiet, screwball chemistry. “To me the theme of this movie is that happiness lies not in the big, blue eyes of the beautiful girl,” Mr. Webb said.

Great writing and insight.
