After nearly being put to sleep by The Russia House, last night we watched Woman in Gold starring Helen Mirren. Very compelling film. We really enjoyed it. It's a "must see" in our book.

Lars And The Real Girl

It's a comedy with heart. Funny. A lesson in not judging others. Tolerance for differences. Sweet story. First I saw it and loved it. Then DH and I saw it and he loved it. Then my son and I saw it, we laughed and loved it too. Please see it if you have time. It's on amazon prime right now.

I agree, it's a wonderful film. I saw it twice.

For the second and third time, I watched the The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. I first saw it when it came out (2011) and yesterday DH promptly fell asleep when the movie started, so I played it over after he woke up.


Also watched Mystic Pizza

I just finished watching that movie upon your recommendations because I honestly value them. Please don't be offended by my take on it.

I don't know how to say this tactfully, but for me it was a real stretch to be impressed by this both bizarre and unbelievable story being either inspirational or entertaining. For me, it was one of the worst movies I've ever seen, although the acting for the "living" actors was stellar!
Different strokes for different folks as they say.

I'll second that, Katie. (In fact I think I did, a while back when I saw it at the local cinema).

And I don't like Helen Mirren as a rule.

I didn't know about this film - Lars and the Real Girl - so I googled it. Suffice to say that the plot line would not have appealed to me so I took it no further, i.e. I knew I would not get engaged with it. Clearly though there is fun to be had in such a story though - just not for me.
