Call Me By Your Name

Beautifully filmed and well acted we all agreed the best part of the movie was the last minute and a half. It seems everything was leading up to the fathers speech, and what some of us saw a the big reveal.
Taking place in the 80’s in Italy, a professor and his family entertain a doctoral student for the summer.

The Shape Of Water

I don’t often, if ever do fantasy or sci fi and now i know why. It isnt real and I know it. But I did enjoy this film about a creature from the sea. And Im guessing that after a day or two of thinking about it, I’ll find the messages and like it more.

The Novitiate

I don’t think this movie will encourage you to become a nun, but it was fascinating to watch.  A young neglected girl falls in love with the church and we watch as she goes through the stages to take her vows. Simultaneously Vatican II is happening outside the walls, and eventually inside.  I was shocked to find that 90,000 nuns left their calling as the repercussions of Vatican II.

aida’s secret

Once again I found myself walking across the park to The Lincon Center Movie Theatre. A new story, a documentary, a reason to reflect, count your blessings, remember horror, and a journey.   I could have liked the characters more, but i didn’t need to.  the story was just compelling enough to keep me interested. And free.
