Milk--the story of Harvey Milk, who became the first openly gay man to ever be elected for public office. He was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1977.
The Reader--well, of course I'm very curious what the movie is like, having finally read the book.
Frost/Nixon--Nixon's presidency and all the controversy it caused happened before I was old enough to have any opinions.
The Duchess--I enjoy period films, and I like the actors in this one.
Doubt--Ekim and I got to see this on Broadway, and both thought it was an extremely smart play. And now it's on the big screen, with Meryl Streep, no less.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button--it's an F. Scott Fitzgerald short story. It's grand to keep his memory alive.
This past Wednesday (Jan 7), while we were gnoshing our pizza, we caught the second half of PBS's airing of Cyrano de Bergerac, with Kevin Kline as Cyrano, and Jennifer Garner as Roxanne. I loved it. A whole bunch of years ago, 1980-something, there was an updated-style movie called Roxanne, starring Steve Martin and Daryl Hannah. That was a fun movie, but no where near as richly wordy or funny as the original play, by Edmond Rostand.
