Movie indulgence

Instead of curing the blues with food last night,  I decided we should go to the movies (again).  We saw Sofia Coppola's new film, Somewhere.  The best part was, our local free weekly paper was hosting a movie night for their readers, so we were surprised with free tickets!  

The cinematography in Somewhere was beautiful with loads of airy, washed out shots of Los Angeles and southern California.  The plot, ......hmmm.  I wasn't totally captivated by the plot.  Elle Fanning's performance, on the other hand, was delightfully innocent and beautiful. How often do we see an 11 year old shine and glimmer on film with their own natural poise and sensibility?  Not often enough, I realized.

What movies have you seen lately?

  1. I really want to see that! I love all of Sofia's films. I've been watching really horrible romantic comedies lately. Guilty pleasure, I suppose.


Thanks for leaving me a note!
