Today I took time out to see a movie all by myself. And, I was truly....all by my own self...not another soul in the cinema...instead, there were other cinemas full of families with kids seeing The Simpsons Movie. It was nice.
The movie I chose to see was "In the Land of Women". It starred the ever lovely Meg Ryan, the good looking Adam Brody(Carter Webb), Kristen Stewart, Makenzie Vega and Olympia Dukakis. Adam plays the role of a guy who is a writer of soft porn (no less!) and he is dumped by his model girlfriend who he thinks is the love of his life. He moves on to another town to take care of his elderly grandmother who is a delightful character full of witt and humorous sarcasm. She keeps saying she is going to die... she is teaching him a life lessons without him realising it at the time (so true of some of us in real life).
Without going on about it anymore and spoiling a great movie, Meg Ryan plays the neighbour across the road from Carter's grandmother...her own journey accompanied by Carter's own life journey makes for a great movie...not a slow one, and not too over the top either. Be warned that tissues are a must for parts of it.
After the flick I went on to watch two of my brood swim. They went exceptionally well and the swim instructor just adores Sarah..as does one of the new teachers at the school. Her comment to me, "Your little girl is such a delight, she has this aura about her that makes people smile". Proud mother hen am I!
