Let’s Try this Kaffee Klatche Trailer Park Thing

This being our first Worldcon as presenters, we thought it might be fun to gather a small group of like-interested fen and just talk about movies for awhile. What you like, what you hate, what you’re looking forward to, what you wonder why they bothered. So let’s do a Kaffee Klatche and talk about the movies! Note you have to sign up ahead of time.

The Moon and the Sun — The Film

Paramount has acquired rights for distribution of the period fantasy adventure “The Moon and the Sun” slotting it for an April 10, 2015 release. Members of the ensemble cast are Pierce Brosnan as King Louis XIV, Kaya Scodelario as Marie-Josèphe, Benjamin Walker as Yves De La Croix, William Hurt and Fan Bingbing.

Based on the book by Sasquan GOH Vonda McIntyre. The story combines two major genres: science fiction and historical romance, set in 17th century France, “The Moon and the Sun” follows King Louis XIV’s (Pierce Brosnan) “quest for immortality.” The royal king wanted to capture and steal a mermaid’s life force, a move that is further complicated by his illegitimate daughter’s discovery and befriending of the creature.

The novel has won the Nebula Award for Best Novel in 1997, beating out A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin. It was inspired by the short story “The Natural History and Extinction of the People of the Sea”, also by McIntyre, which was illustrated by fellow author Ursula K. Le Guin.
