the reader

Last week I saw The Reader with some friends from work. I highly recommend it, if you haven't seen it already! I found myself unable to stop thinking about the characters -- why did they act the way they did? What drove them? What was their purpose in life?

Kate Winslet was stunning. I'm going to have to get Revolutionary Road now, just so I can take in some more of her amazing acting.

I also watched Start Trek and thought it was so good. I was again really haunted by the characaters, especially Spok (who is a CMU alumn! Go Tartans! not the alien, but the actor) Here's to summer movies! Next up ... Where the Wild Things Are (though I don't think that opens until the fall).

  1. can't wait to see the reader!

    did not like star trek at all! i thought they made too much effort to be epic, which was really disappointing :(

    but, yes. The Reader is on my list.
