OK, now you've got me in full-on MOVIE MODE, so be warned. Having a bad night, and youngest talked me into watching The Way, Way Back. Which my 80 yr. old mom recommended over the Summer! It was cute, and both of my kids identified with it, since their dad (my DH) has been kind of AWOL. In fact, I think the movie felt empowering for all of us, in a strange way.
Then I remembered this movie---Steve Coogan! Dame Dench! Must see! http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2431286/
I saw Gravity a number of weeks ago. Nothing on my "must see" list at the moment, because I'm so dang BUSY (despite work hiatus), driving my kids from one thing to another (band, orchestra, academic decathlon, etc).
I will try to catch up and check in this weekend---looking forward to the wintry mix, so I can STAY PUT at home in my jammies all weekend.
p.s. just noticed your background. What's with all the beatniks?! We were listening to an interview w/ Bruce Dern* (ok, guess I should see "Nebraska"), and they had some early 60's clips of him, and DH + I looked at each other and said, "What's with the beatnik lingo?!"
