Movie Monday 3/11

Craig finally went back to school on Friday!!  Hurray! Even better, he didn't crash afterward, worked on make-up work all weekend, and went to school today, too! He seems back to his old self - what a relief for all of us. Of course, we are never all well for long - Jamie came home from college on Sunday with a bad cold. You know how that affects CFS. He went back to campus last night with a pile of extra medications and is trying to take it easy this week.

Well, anyway, Ken and I enjoyed a great movie on Friday night:

We watched The Kids Are All Right, a movie I have wanted to see ever since its theatrical release. It was very good, with a fabulous cast. Julianne Moore and Annette Benning star as a gay couple who have two teenage kids. Benning's character is a doctor who is a bit uptight and controlling. Moore's character is more of a hippie-type who is trying to start a landscaping business. They seem to live a nice, quiet life together, until their son decides he wants to find out who is biological sperm-donor father is. His sister, who is 18, contacts the donor agency, gets a name, and sets up a meeting with him, played by Mark Ruffalo. Things begin to spin out of control from there. Ken and I both enjoyed this drama/comedy - the cast is all excellent, the story is engaging, and there's even a great soundtrack behind it all.

Have you seen any good movies lately?

  1. So happy to hear about Craig! Hope Jamie doesn't suffer from the cold too much! I was looking for a comedy to watch, you can't beat a good one. I'll suggest this for our film club. Thanks Sue!
