MOVIE NIGHT

Very seldom do Joe and I watch a movie.  But my boss, Jerry, recommended one to me and insisted I take it home.  It's a Woody Allen film called "Midnight in Paris."  Usually if Jerry likes a movie, I don't.  He has recommended other movies to us that we hate.  So it was with fear and trepidation that we put it in the DVD player.

Well, for once Jerry recommended a movie we liked.  It was great.  It started off really slow and we were trying to decide if we wanted to watch it or not.  I'm glad we persevered.

It's the story of a guy named Gil who is engaged to a woman who is totally not for him.  They are in Paris.  She wants him to return to Los Angeles and rewrite movie scripts.  He wants to stay in Paris and write a great novel.  He loves Paris of the 1920s.

In case any of you have not seen it and want to I will not go any further with the plot.  But if you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it.

  1. Tom and I saw this movie a few weeks ago. I like how it portrayed all the artists.

  2. I did too. You felt as if you were really there. But the best part was the moral -- be happy with what you have.
