2 Movies, 1 Weekend

Tim and I had free movie passes to any United Artist theatre so last night we went to see The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. It was so intense. At the end you are literally on the edge of your seat. Very emotional to say the least. So much more of an impact than the book for me because I really got sucked into the lives of the characters. If you see it, bring a hankie and get ready to have your jaw drop at the end, there were literally gasps in the theatre that we were in.

This morning we went to see Doubt another movie that was not so light on the subject matter. The acting in this movie is superior, Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman have got to be nominated for something since both performances were incredible. Hoffman steals every scene and truly absorbed his role in a tremendous way. Amy Adams was wonderful in her supporting role. Don't be fooled, you won't be blown away by the scenery, but the dialog and acting stole the show, it was superb. It was originally a play that I read a couple years ago and was translated to film, it is truly a great work of art.

Those are some intense movies for a double feature, good no doubt but intense! We will eventually rent them, date nights are far and few between. Did I mention we had a high of 15 today, that's Fahrenheit and not Celsius. Insane!
Love you,
