Tuesday Movie

I realize I'm a little late in the game on recommending this flick, but I rarely get to enjoy a movie at the theater unless it is animated or contains transformers, sparkling vampires or teens killing other teens for the viewing pleasure of the capitol.  Yes, I have kids.

So, I'm a renter.  And I watch my adult movies (get your mind out of the gutter) when my impressionable young children are tucked in for the night. My public library has a wonderful selection of dvds and best of all, they're FREE, which is my all time favorite word in the English language right next to LOVE.  Just don't combine those two words, as it tends to cheapen things.

Okay, so what's the flick?  It's The Descendants with George Clooney, or as my daughter once referred to him, "You know, that guy, George Looney.  He was in Batman."  I'm not really a huge Looney fan.  He always seems to be playing himself, right along with Julia Roberts.  But, I liked this film.  And I liked George Clooney in it.

I don't want to spoil it for you, but there's a death, there's grief and most importantly, there's an advance directive that get's followed.  

It might make you weepy, so have a box of tissue at the ready.

  1. LOL! You always make me laugh. I enjoy a flick with an advanced directive in it. Imagine the conflict if it's not followed :-)

  2. This has been on my "to watch" list for a while. With your recommendation, it may move further up the queue.

    And re the email, you can get me at revrosey at gmail dot com - I'm not a twitterphile :)

    Yes, I liked that flick too - for all those reasons and b/c it was set in Hawaii --

    1. I've been to Hawaii two times and I wish I could go back. It's the one place I've been to where I actually felt relaxed. I think an island does that to a person.

  4. I think it is the balmy weather that lends its feeling to the Island attitude ...
