Land Saturday, Apr 10 2021 

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.

Condor Tuesday, Mar 23 2021 

Another series that successfully reconfigures the work in the movie – past. In this case “Six Days of the Condor”. Max Irons is engaging as the lead – He has good genes in his favor. William Hurt adds a touch of class as well as other veteran actors. Good writing, great pace. Action adventure fans – rejoice!

Pieces of a Woman Saturday, Jan 9 2021 

A gripping film with a redemptive ending. If you’re pregnant , I’d maybe pass this up. As careful as “Call the Midwife” in portraying childbirth accurately; it seemed even more immediate and painful before and after the birth. The female lead is very very good and is paired with Shia Lebeouf- who shows us more than once that men can cry. I would say it is a woman’s film. My husband said it was painful to watch.

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.
