As most of you know, there ae only two things my family loves as much as books and those two things are music and movies.
Well, we love each other MORE, but that’s a different story!
Anyway, since my seventeen-year-old is homeschooled, we have a Friday tradition in which we grab something for lunch (he usually opts for Subway and I choose Panera) and smuggle it into a matinee. It’s awesome because A) matinees are only $5 per ticket, B) I get to spend time with my son and dissect films, C) the theater is mostly empty, and D) we get to see more movies than we would normally get to see both because of the price AND because we don’t have the “Rated R Problem” with my youngest.
So, I thought I’d share a glimpse of our Friday movies with you! Today, we saw Crazy Heart. I’m not a fan of country music, but this was a wonderful, incredibly moving film. Jeff Bridges was a triumph, and in my opinion, his nomination for Best Actor this year was well-deserved.
Here’s the trailer for your viewing pleasure!
