Here today…. Thursday, Nov 25 2021 

I love Billy Crystal…. But we all are getting on in years. There are lots of laugh out loud moments in this film about the memory loss of a comedy writer. Tiffany Haddish deserves a shout out as the person who agrees to be his caregiver and she is a breath of fresh air. Tune in , you will be glad you did.

Simply Elegant Mistletoe Necklace Thursday, Nov 11 2021 

It’s getting to be that time of year again. The medallion is my design and is bead woven. There is a number of Swarovski crystals in this piece.16 inch choker with sterling silver toggle clasp . The medallion loosely reminds me of mistletoe . Not a flashy piece , but a simply elegant one

Maid Saturday, Oct 23 2021 

This is a great series with a newcomer at the helm. This is a woman’s film. I was happy to see that the Puget Sound area has a network of places for people who are domestically abused physically and mentally. It also sheds light on mental health problems of the homeless. It is very well written , acted and directed. This maid is very determined to see her daughter protected and cared for. The portrayal of the “maid” is the actual daughter of Andie MacDowell , Margaret Qualley. I know mom must be very proud of her accomplished daughter. Speaking of Andie MacDowell – her portrayal of the Bi Polar mother in the piece is quite accomplished also. It is definitely a stretch from her past work. Accomplished, earthy and over the top.

The Guilty Thursday, Oct 7 2021 

Jake Gyllenhaal – part of a gifted acting family – deserves an Oscar nomination for this performance. There are many twists and turns in this script and a growing crescendo of angst. He is definitely up to the task. Fasten your seat belts! He plays a cop who answers 911 calls and gets really caught up in one call that takes place during an LA fire emergency.

scenes from a marriage Thursday, Oct 7 2021 

The first thing that comes to mind is that this is extremely well acted and directed. It is so much “all there” that it is almost too painful to watch. I’m sure that it was exhausting for the actors to make. It is refreshing to see work like this that captures the elements of the original version that sheds glimmers of new light on the piece. I must say that I felt more removed from the first version – sort of like a train wreck that you’re not on. This version involves you more.

the starling Monday, Sep 27 2021 

I have read some negative reviews – but I liked this film. It is an unapologetic story of loss .

I even shed a tear at the end. I’m a Kevin Kline fan from way back. And I like Melissa McCarthy. No one takes themselves too seriously – it is all down – played. And the therapists get their just deserts.

Cry Macho Sunday, Sep 19 2021 

I don’t think that this is the best film he’s done – but this is a pleasant little film. Mr. Eastwood’s character is asked by an old friend to locate and return his son – who is somewhere in Mexico. It’s a road picture. Old man , teenage Mexican. The kindness of strangers also figures in this film in the Senora who most graciously feeds them. My favorite line is ” I can’t cure OLD”. I don’t agree with his politics – but even in advanced age – Mr. Eastwood is a fine actor and director.

Vigil Thursday, Sep 2 2021 

This is an English submarine series that is very absorbing. One of my favorite actresses – Suranne Jones, plays a policewoman detective who is sent on board to investigate a murder. The animosity between the Queen’s navy and the police doesn’t help matters. The pacing of this series is superb. Can’t wait to see the next installment!
