An outstanding directorial and acting effort by Robin Wright. A big change in role from the First Lady in House of Cards. After a personal tragedy , a middle aged woman decides to purchase a cabin in the wilderness. She finds she is not really prepared for the demands of dealing with animals ( a bear who interrupts a trip to the outdoor privy) and the loneliness and privations of winter which is longer in the mountains. During the winter she is rescued by a man well versed in survival in the mountains. He brings a nurse in to help her regain her strength. But this really isn’t about romance. They have similar tragedies to deal with. It is a truly sincere and deep friendship that heals both of them. I really recommend this film.

Penguin Bloom Saturday, Feb 27 2021 

I invariably like Naomi Watt’s work. This is a little gem of a film. And it is based on a true story. Through the love and concern of a bird (repaying the rescue of said bird when very young).a very depressed woman and her children learn to handle all the woe and drawbacks of being wheel- chair bound. And Sam was very active before her accident – an accomplished surfer. Then the mynah bird , Penguin, enters the scene and slowly but surely wins everyone’s hearts. A great film for the kids to watch with you.

Wisely the individuals behind this project chose to stick with a lot of the creative decisions that made the film “Silence of the Lambs” such a critical success. The tone of this new program carries on where the film leaves off. The lead actress also seems to have gleaned good information from the movie. This is the best new offering that I have seen so far on network television.

I don’t remember a time when Denzel Washington has given a bad performance. This portrayal of a California cop is one of his best. It is deep and subtle. Well written and directed film also. There are no definitive answers as to whom the serial killer is at the end of the film – but I suspect that happens in real life. The seedy underside of Los Angeles is in full view.

The Dig Saturday, Jan 30 2021 

I’ve heard some reviewers panned this film – but I’m not going to follow suit. Carey Mulligan does a fine job portraying her character as does Ralph Fiennes – and it is quite a remarkable story- a true story. As in life, there are moments happy and sad. But it is a quality film about an incredible discovery at the opening moments of World War II.’

Tom Hanks shines again as the principal player in this western. So does his eventual sidekick who steals your heart in this must – see flick. The ragged edges of the old west are here. But there is a warm hearted ending. Tom plays the Tom Brokaw of the Old West.

Bridgerton Thursday, Dec 31 2020 

Well, this show is very popular, and I do enjoy watching it, but I am an adult. It’s to say the least, pretty racy. Well written and acted though. The dialogue is sprightly and the characters are very well drawn. At one time I wanted to be an actress – I’m kind of glad I didn’t pursue that – it seems that very revealing and embarrassing moments involving intercourse are the name of the game these days. Shakespeare wasn’t this roudy. The humor -especially Lady Whistledown’s gossip rag , (played skillfully by Julie Andrews) is well done. Have the kids watch cartoons in another room.

Let Him Go Saturday, Dec 19 2020 

A special film…… Both Diane Lane and Kevin Costner shine in well developed and lived character roles. It’s kind of hard to put into words the wonderful under played dialogue and warmth between this film couple. A pair of grandparents see mistreatment of their deceased son’s son and his mother. And when they encounter the family of their widowed daughter – in – laws second husband the only answer appears to be to try to take the mother and son back to their home. A lot more happens but I won’t spoil it for you.
