My days are pretty boring right now, lots of typing and lots of phone calls, but yesterday Rene and I were able to take in another one of the Oscar contenders, An Education. I really enjoyed this movie. The build-up of this young girl as she falls for an older man was amazing! I had a sense of dread as each moment occurred just waiting for the rug to get pulled out…
…but when that rug was pulled out I felt like the “fall” really wasn’t that far and that the story got wrapped up really fast. The best part of this film for me were the performances. Carey Mulligan plays savvy/naive very well. Alfred Molina is great! Cara Seymour, plays her mother, was wonderful! There is a great team dynamic between the characters Helen and Danny. I recommend seeing it.
But at the end of the day, when all was said and done, I stayed at my parent’s house last night and when I got there I found Pete all wrapped up in his blanky, and that’s today’s picture:
See you tomorrow!
