'Beginners' with Christopher Plummer and Ewan McGregor and Melanie Laurent. A 30 something man whose world is rocked by his widowed father announcing he has terminal cancer and that he also has a young male boyfriend. He meets the wonderful and unpredictable Anna just months after his father has died. I enjoyed this movie so much. It shows how funny life can be, even at the most despairing and saddening times. Oh and there is a fantastic dog named Arthur too.
Congratulations to Christopher Plummer who just won a SAG award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role for this movie.
'Sideways' is about two middle aged men adventuring on a weeklong road trip through the California wine region. Disappointed with their lives, one depressed the other out for a wild time before his impending marriage. Funny, sad and brilliantly acted. An excellent movie staring Paul Giamatti.
These are both so my kind of movies. Any recommendations from you?
We also had another day trip to the coast on Saturday on yet another blue sky and sunshine day! So lucky in January. This time to Pacific City - with lunch at the great Pelican Brewery right at the beach.
Hope you had a relaxing weekend.
