Tonight my husband and I ventured out into the pouring rain to go see Les Miserables. We got there early and grabbed our large bucket of popcorn, which we put a pretty good dent in before we even got inside the theatre. Once inside, it was gone before the trailers were finished. That's okay, because I now know the popcorn isn't for the movie. I don't want to eat or be bothered when I'm engrossed in a story. The popcorn is to keep me entertained for the forty minutes I have to wait for it to start. There. Once I came to terms with that, I don't have to feel guilty by eating it all before the movie starts.
Speaking of coming to terms with things, that's what this whole movie is all about. It's amazing that even back in the revolutionary times in that age, the basic battle of good and evil drives the story. Trust, courage, bravery, honesty and integrity are all on the line in this story.(I couldn't help thinking how much easier it would've been if they had Twitter.)
Those qualities are magnified by the amazing production. The talent and signing was above and beyond what I thought could be taken from the live stage and reproduced on the big screen. All in all, I loved it and would highly recommend it for an evening out.
Now, as far as the specifics go, I have a writer friend who actually has a movie critic blog. She does a way better job than I could ever do for you in delivering an in depth review of the the production and the acting. (I'm can't even remember the names of the cast members and I just read her blog on this movie this morning.). So, to get the real skinny on this movie, go to:
And so, as another day goes by, Les Mis on a miserable night outside was fun, glad to be home tucked in front of the fire with wine and my hubby's home made nachos, and ...I have written.
Today's art work:
Playing with oil paint on the ArtRage app.
Look at the thickness of the paint and how it blends. So cool!
