Watched The Insider with Al Pacino and Russell Crowe last night. I'd seen it and recommended it to my daughter. She liked it too.

It's the kind of movie we have to watch when my son is gone. He likes movie with action and not "all talk talk" as he puts it. Such an eloquent child...

"Defiance" with Daniel Craig (yum yum) and Liev Schrieber as the Bielski brothers. True story about the Jews who hid in the forests of Belorussia and fought the Nazis.

my daughter had to impersonate someone for an English paper and I suggested the Dutch woman who wrote of her experiences (I'm sorry her name escapes me but I will let you know and she wrote a book about it) .....my daughter has never listened to anyone but this struck her chord and for once in her life she did........it was the best performance of her life.........she dressed all in black and wore a huge gold cross that I owned and showed the house where the protagonist hid the Jewish people and then how she and her sister were held in the camps themselves for harboring them and led to the death of her father and sister.....my daughter said that the room was silent and the teacher was in tears.........it had a huge impact........I had no idea that such an idea would have such repercussions.............then .............

I believe the woman's name was Corrie ten Boom Deb. Her story is amazing and a great testament of faith.

The book "The Hiding Place" was written by Corrie ten Boom, and there was a movie starring Julie Harris based on the book. Debs, is there going to be a new movie about it?
