The Encephalitis Society is partnering with the Hannibal Team to bring awareness to the disease ( remember, Will Graham suffered from it.) See here.
Early on, we made the connection/coincidence between Will Graham’s Encephalitis ( remember, he drew a correct clock. for which Hannibal substituted an image tending to prove Encephalitis?) and Richard Armitage’s recent role in Brain on Fire, in which Susannah Cahalan was also tested for Encephalitis, including the task of drawing a clock.
But here is a line from The Encephalitis Society’s press release initiating its charity drive:
A big screen version of Brain on Fire will be released in 2016, starring Chloe Grace-Moretz and Richard Armitage, who we are sure Hannibal fans will be all too familiar with!
You see, this is where, maybe I can be abrasive – this is terrible writing. The phrase ” all too familiar with,” is no compliment. It’s a pejorative phrase – something the writer probably didn’t mean, but said anyway.
Meanwhile, you can buy the T-shirt, or make a donation ( see original link.)
Thanks to Micra for passing this along
