Thank You Producers, Directors, Writers, Actors for Making "Florence Foster Jenkins"!

I really enjoyed watching that movie this afternoon at the theatre.  After the obscene, horrific, pathetic and disgusting excuse of a movie I sat through last week it is good to know there are still at least a few decent films in production somewhere in the world.

Meryl Streep is the consummate actress as usual in the title role.  It was great to see Hugh Grant playing a character with more depth than the addled twits he played so often in his earlier films. It was also wonderful to see Simon Helberg playing a completely different character than his tv role on Big Bang Theory and coming across on the big screen so believably and well.  The writing was excellent and the story portrayed rather believably.  My parents heard Florence Foster Jenkins sing many years ago and I do hope Dad can pull himself together long enough to get out to the movie one of these days.

What a great afternoon getting lost in someone else's life and story.

And now....off to pick up my friend for Indian dinner.  Hopefully the Dosa and Curry Garden food is as good this time as it was the first time I was there.
