As we all know, April showers bring May flowers.  They also bring a great opportunity to stay in and watch movies.  I’ve been watch a lot of French films to practice for Paris but I recently added the classic Italian picture L’Avventura to the mix. It was the photo above of a very chic Monica […]

Golden Goddess

I watched Blue Jasmine on the plane back from Paris.  I have to say I didn’t love it but I did love Cate Blanchett. I am however loving the interior that she was photographed in for the January 2014 issue of Vogue. I hope they give a location credit in the issue which should be […]

I can’t wait to see Reese Witherspoon’s new film Water for Elephants which is in theatres April 22nd and is based on the book of the same name by Sara Gruen.  She looks gorgeous in the trailer and also in the May 2011 issue of Vogue along side and top of some pretty pachyderms.  Rob […]

It was interesting to hear that Carey Mulligan was just selected by Baz Luhrman to play Daisy Buchanan in his new adaption of The Great Gatsby.  The 1974 version staring Robert Redford and Mia Farrow is considered to be a classic so it seems a little weird that Baz Luhrmann would remake it at all.  I’m curious […]

The King’s Speech

10 . 28 . 10

I’m a sucker for period movies, especially those with English accents and even more so, those staring Colin Firth.  So what happens when an English accent of character played by Firth in a period film is accompanied by a stammer?  That is the story of The King’s Speech which opens November 26th.  Prince George, The Duke of York […]

I Am Love

04 . 14 . 10

One reviewer of the Italian film Io sono l’amore (I Am Love in English) declared “see it by any means possible” and after viewing the trailer, I am terribly upset that I won’t be able to see it until it’s released in the US on June 18th! The story centers on a wealthy Italian family […]

Love Story author Erich Segal died this past Sunday. He wrote the rich boy falls in love with a poor girl novel while as a professor at Harvard. The movie version is one of the all time great tear jerkers. Just hearing the Henry Mancini score makes me want to cry! Sniff sniff. Although, it […]

Snow Day!

12 . 19 . 09

The flakes have just begun to fall in New York but I’ve already assembled all my snow day supplies! Magazines, check. Books, check. Movies, check. Tea, check. Cookies, check. Candle, check. I am so looking forward to spending this day curled up on the sofa under my cashmere blanket watching movies and catching up on […]

I normally don’t like to write about the same thing twice but I just saw The Young Victoria tonight and it is amazing! I fell completely in love with Rupert Friend as Prince Albert and wished the film would never end! Emily Blunt is wonderful too! Julian Fellowes needs to make more movies because whatever […]

The Young Victoria

12 . 12 . 09

I’m looking forward to having some time off at the holidays so I can see all the wonderful films that are being released this month. At the top of my list now is The Young Victoria which tells the story of Queen Victoria’s accession to the thrown, her turbulent early reign and her enduring romance […]
