We saw a great short film on PBS the other day-it's only 20------------
minutes long. It's called "Room 10" starring Robin Wright Penn and Kris
Kristoferson and actually co-directed by Jennifer Aniston. The soliloquy
by Kristoferson is one of the best descriptions of what makes a marriage
for the long haul – beautiful, real without mushy hollywood sentiment.
You can watch it for free on Hulu:
Last night we watched Bella, which is out on DVD. It's a beautiful, impressionistic movie that will linger in your mind for the next few days. An exploration of how one day can change your life. The director/writer's inspiration sprang from his grandmother's phrase, "If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans". It's got one of the best male Latino characters I've ever seen. Flawed, yet gentle, he seems like someone you'd treasure as a friend.
