A Really Good Movie

Last evening Julie and I went to see a movie (girl time) and Reid and Michael went to see a movie (guy time). Reid and Michael saw "Transformers". Reid's comment was that the movie was "entertainingly horrible" and Mike was actually checking to see whether or not we had called during the movie.

Julie and I were much luckier. We saw the movie "Evening." I knew from the cast that I would most likely enjoy it (Meryl Streep, Claire Danes, Glenn Close, Vanessa Redgraves... the list goes on and on). But, I was a little apprehensive as it was written in part by the man who wrote "The Hours." Everyone in the world seemed to love "The Hours" and I did not.

I am so glad that I saw "Evening". It's a movie about the choices that we make in life. It's a story about women and the relationships that we have with one another as sisters, mothers, daughters and friends. I would strongly encourage all of the women who read this blog (yes all four of you!) to go see this movie. I will be buying it when it comes out on DVD because I want to see it again... It will make you glad to be a woman and thankful for the beautiful women that you have in your lives!

I will put it on the list, I however managed to see the all important Harry Potter movie on Friday, a nice cliff notes of the book. I will put it on the list though! If you are interested in a movie challenge, rent the Good Shephard and then please explain to me what happened in that movie.
