All I've pretty much ate all weekend is a box of Sugar Babies. I bought them for the movies on Friday. And whenever I've gotten hungry I've eaten a few. There's only 4 left. I guess eating them over the weekend is better then eating them ALL at the movies on Friday.
I did eat actual food this weekend too. Yesterday, the Boy was at a card tournament all day. So I made tortellini. He isn't really a big fan of stuffed pastas.
I would say I enjoyed this movie, but it's not really a movie you can say you enjoyed. I looked up reviews of this movie and a lot of people don't like it because it "falsified history." That it made the Nazi seem like the good guys. But I don't think that's quite it.
I think more of what it is, is that it makes you think about what makes a person good and what makes a person bad. Hannah, Kate Winslet's character, is first shown to be a good person. (Or as much of a good person she can be having and affair with a teenager.) But then you find out she worked at a concentration camp and did evil things. It makes you want to think of her as an evil person. But yet, we fell in love with her, so how can she be evil?
On the other hand you have Michael, who is portrayed as a good guy. But yet, he fell in love with a murderer. The whole movie he struggles with doing the right thing. But if the right thing for him is helping a killer, then is it the right thing? How can he be a good person, if he does something good for someone who is a bad person?
There were things I didn't like. Her "big secret." Not so much of a secret. Watch the trailer and think about the title to the movie you could probably figure it out. Also the fact the she sacrifices so much in order to keep it a secret seems a little far fetched.
I do think Kate Winslet acted very well in it. And yes, I did cry at parts. Don't see it if you're expecting an uplifting movie. But if you want thought provoking this is it.
My shows are now starting (Amazing Race, Desperate Housewives, Brother & Sisters), so I will be signing off.
