I get email invites all day long, brag brag, but this screening notice for Forever Strong got me particularly wet in the knickers. I’m not always a fan of Sean Penn—he can be rather hambone and obnoxious, even on screen–but his being in a project generally makes it major, something worth missing Golden Girls for. Alas, the Oscar winner isn’t in this film even though the weird typography of the invite strongly (and inadvertently) suggests he is. It turns out you shouldn’t read it from left to right the way you would do with anything normal. Instead, soak it in up and down, your eyes making parallel lines, and you’ll realize it’s actually Sean Faris who’s in this thing. And Penn Badgely. What a Badgely mishegoss.
