This weekend, I got to see all of Mr. Wonderful's hard work from the last year pay off, on the big screen. Six months of work in London and the surrounding area... Seven months of post-production... Many tears on my part, as I missed him from thousands of miles away...
But to watch this amazing creation in the darkness of a Hollywood theater with his mark on it made the grief seem almost trivial.
I wanted to tap the shoulder of the person next to me and say, "My boyfriend played a huge role in this film." I wished I'd had my camera to snap a picture as his name scrolled by in the credits. I felt compelled to kiss him halfway through because I was so darn impressed with his talent and eye for detail.
One of the best parts of the whole thing, though, was being able to bombard him with a million questions after the movie. How'd they do that? Were there really that many boats in the water or did you create them? Was that horse totally okay after he fell? Is Cate's skin really that flawless? He answered every single one, and added his own insider commentary. I could tell that he was proud of his work—which made me even more proud of my boy.
