Last night we went to see two movies! The first, A Single Man, with Colin Firth. It's based on a novel by Isherwood (done into a play, I Am A Camera and then Cabaret). I thought it was beautifully done: Filming, music and acting. Then Jordi wanted to see The Blind Side (I had already seen it). I liked it but think I liked Precious more. They aren't exactly the same but very similar in idea; kids from underprivileged neighborhoods, making it out, pulling themselves up by the bootstraps. I found The Blind Side to be endearing but a bit too Hollywoodish. Precious was raw. Monique, I thought, did a fantastic job.
