~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Johnny and I went to the movies this past Tuesday, and we found a winner. We liked this comedy. If you get a chance, I recommend you see this one. Here's a synopsis:
A divorced and single parent, Eva (Julia Louis Dreyfus) spends her days enjoying work as a masseuse but dreading her daughter's impending departure for college. She meets Albert (James Gandolfini) - a sweet, funny and like-minded man also facing an empty nest. As their romance quickly blossoms, Eva befriends Marianne (Catherine Keener), her new massage client. Marianne is a beautiful poet who seems "almost perfect" except for one prominent quality: she rags on her ex-husband way too much.

Suddenly, Eva finds herself doubting her own relationship with Albert as she learns the truth about Marianne's Ex. ENOUGH SAID is a sharp, insightful comedy that humorously explores the mess that often comes with getting involved again.

You'll notice both stars are wearing Blue.






This PG13 is an adult movie. It involves adult situations and is not for children.

The acting is flawless. Both Julia Louis Dreyfus and James Gandolfini gave Oscar-winning performances. Unfortunately, Gandolfini died from a heart attack in June at aged 51 after completing work on the film.

The characters are believable. The writing gives a storyline that seems true to life. We left the theater with many things to think about and discuss.

I give this film a thumbs up.

Some people think that movies are too expensive, but we go to a theater that offers films to seniors Monday - Thursday afternoons for only $5.00. In addition, a small popcorn is only $2.00 on Tuesdays.
Hey, you can't beat that!

Happy Blue Monday!

Glad you two had an enjoyable day at the movies. I have not been in so long I probably would not know how to act. Not sure if they have a senior day at one around here. I do enjoy my popcorn at home.

Hi Sally
Sounds like a great Rom-com, what they call here a good Chick flick. (Do you have that expression in the US? Ermm maybe not! ) I'll look out for it, it is released in Australia on November 14th!
Thanks for hosting again

Not been to a cinema for a long time but we've recently started a film club in the appartments where we love projecting from a DVD on to a screen - just watched "The Last of the Blonde Bombshells" staring Judi Dench and Cleo Laine - brilliant film

That sounds like a great movie. I'll have to wait to see it till I get home from India in early Dec.

How sad that the actor died at such an early age....51!!!

My post today is about the colorful Jaipur puppets.

Boy this has been the summer for death. We just last another family member, too.

Good Morning Sally, This comment is a day late but I have enough dollars to go see this movie. Big smile here. Yesterday my sisters were here to celebrate my birthday and the time flew by. By evening I went to bed early. I am so glad you had a movie date. I know we would enjoy this movie. The actors are so good.

Happy Blue Monday,
Love, Jeanne
