Gerard Manley Hopkins - Spring And Fall - Read by Jeremy Northam

Spring And Fall
by Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844-1889)

To a young child.

Margaret, are you grieving
Over Goldengrove unleaving?
Leaves, like the things of man, you
With your fresh thoughts care for, can you?
Ah! as the heart grows older
It will come to such sights colder
By and by, nor spare a sigh
Though worlds of wanwood leafmeal lie;
And yet you will weep and know why.
Now no matter, child, the name:
Sorrow’s springs are the same.
Nor mouth had, no nor mind, expressed
What heart heard of, ghost guessed:
It is the blight man was born for,
It is Margaret you mourn for.

One of my favorite poems that Jeremy has read. He did a whole CD of GM Hopkins poems. They’re brilliantly done.

OMG I love bug eye sprites! They are the best cutest lil cars. He has great taste. Fab pic too :)

They seem like cars that are cute and yet cool at the same time. Kinda like Mr N himself. 

In the “Diver Down” episode of Miami Medical, his character Dr Proctor buys an Austin-Healey (a different model, though). There was some speculation among the fandom back when the episode aired that perhaps Jeremy had had some input as to what make of car Proctor would be lusting after.

These look good!!

They do, don’t they? One’s even a contemporary story, to keep him happy about not always being cast in period films.

Just keep your fingers crossed about The Man Who Knew Infinity. I’m always leery of anything that’s on IMDb only. I like to see the info corroborated elsewhere as well. And long-time Northam fans can’t rest easy until we actually see him on the set—or even in the finished project.

An Update on current Jeremy Northam projects

August 29, 2014

Our Kind of Traitor wrapped production at the end of May. We still don’t know the name of the character Jeremy plays in this adaptation of John Le Carre’s novel. (The producers are being coy about releasing character names for several of the actors.) Ewan McGregor, Naomie Harris, Stellan Skarsgard, and Damian Lewis are also in the cast. A release is scheduled for sometime in 2015.

The Man Who Knew Infinity began filming in and around Cambridge University in early August . According to IMDb, this is the story of Srinivasa Ramanujan, an Indian mathematics genius who was admitted to Cambridge during WWI. Dev Patel is playing Ramanujan and Jeremy Irons (the “Other Jeremy”) is his mentor, G.H. Hardy. Jeremy Northam is listed as playing Bertrand Russell. Other cast members include Stephen Fry, Toby Jones, and Kevin McNally. 

Thanks to Joan at JN Chat for getting the scoop on The Man Who Knew Infinity. This is brand new, very exciting info and she found it for us. 

Filed under Jeremy Northam Our Kind of Traitor The Man Who Knew Infinity how happy am I to learn that JN has a new project? ecstatic that's how happy two projects in one year when was the last time that happened? go Jeremy!

I’ve got a little old motor, which I keep in Norfolk. It’s a little Austin Heal[e]y frog-eyed car. I’m not mechanically minded, but I give it a polish now and again.

Desert Island Meme, 5 movies

I was tagged by haslemere. Thanks! Only thing is, I’m going to have to do a JN list and then a non-JN list. I’ll NEVER be able to narrow it down to just 5 movies total! 

Jeremy Northam movies list:

1. Emma (1996) Natch! Can’t live without a dose of Jeremy’s Mr Knightley from time to time.

2. Dean Spanley (2008) One of my all-time favorite movies. Great ensemble, with Peter O’Toole at the top of his game. 

3. Gosford Park (2001) Jeremy singing, plus most of Britain’s finest actors all in one place. Who could ask for anything more?

4. Happy, Texas (1999) This film really does make me happy. If I’m on a desert island, I’m going to need laughs, right? Steve Zahn in high heels plus JN and William H Macy dancing together will do that for me.

5. Either Enigma (2001) or Cypher (2002) for a little Northam-style adventure. Jeremy’s in top form in both films, but I’d probably pick Cypher because he’s in every single frame of that movie. 

Non-Jeremy Northam movies list:

1. Holiday (1938) This is my favorite Cary Grant & Katharine Hepburn movie. Gotta have some Cary & Kate! Bringing Up Baby is great fun and The Philadelphia Story has that wonderful triangle with Jimmy Stewart in it, but Holiday has more depth to it for me somehow. 

2. Truly, Madly, Deeply (1990) Together Anthony Minghella, Juliet Stevenson and Alan Rickman made movie magic. What a beautiful and funny—and realistic—portrayal of grief.

3. Lone Star (1996) I’m a big fan of John Sayles’ slice-of-American-life movies, and this is one of his best. 

4. Chariots of Fire (1981) I’m going to need something uplifting on a desert island, and this fits the bill. Brilliant performances all around. Ian Charleson saying “When I run, I feel [God’s] pleasure” alone makes this film worth having. 

5. The 39 Steps (1935) I’ll be wanting some Hitchcock, and this is one of my favorites. Plus, Robert Donat! Life isn’t worth living without some “Bob Donuts” every now and again. 

Yeah, I cheated and chose 10 movies. No one has ever accused me of being overly decisive. ;)

Filed under personal movies haslemere Jeremy Northam if someone put a gun to my head and made me choose just 5 movies I'd just tell them to go ahead and pull the trigger I mean the alternative is being on a desert island right?
