Wasn't Rosie the best? We just fell in love with her. I'd read the book and was pleased to see the movie stick pretty well close to it.
As for movies, we watched two, in sequence. The first one, Monday night, was The Mask of Zorro
with Antonio Banderas, Anthony Hopkins and Catherine Zeta-Jones. It was great fun and swashbuckling as required. Loved Hopkins in his role. Certainly different than Silence of the Lambs
Then, last night, we watched the next one, The Legend of Zorro
. Just as good as the other and it had some of the greatest funny moments. Pure fun.
I was impressed with how Banderas handled himself, particularly with a sword. I did a little sleuthing and learned that he'd seriously trained to do all the sword work, along with training in horsemanship.
I just love the Zorro stories and would never miss an episode of Zorro
on TV when I was a child.
