Three movies I'm glad I saw.

You saw it? I think hardly anyone has. I had barely heard of it, really, when my husband's friend invited us over to watch it (he's got one of those giant new TV's). I thought it was so *darned* good, and so *interesting*. I love movies that can present flawed characters so nakedly, and yet still show compassion for them. I think of them as models for my own life, for how to respond with honesty but humour and love for others and for myself (another flawed character).

I thought Laura Linney was wonderful, too. Didn't you just love every scene she was in? I loved that one with the empathetic nursing home worker, played so beautifully by Gbenga Akinnagbe.

Hey, get some popcorn going, I'll come over. It's snowing here tonight, a good time for watching movies, snuggled up under the throws. :)

We'd have to wear super-big curlers and wear quilted bathrobes and fluffy slippers, like on the Patty Duke Show. :)
