I have had such a marvelous Thanksgiving break with Ethan. From trips to new jersey, to oyster festivals, to improv shows with the cartoonist from the economist, to seeing alex b and nicolette, to multiple trips to the movie theater, joe squared, chinese… so good.
And today we go to his sister in law’s birthday dinner. YAY!
Nick Hornby’s An Education was an enjoyable film. The story was solid, and the characters were very clear. The actors portrayed their roles honestly and the art direction was captivating.
However, all of the hype this movie is receiving seems a bit unjustified. Granted, the film is good, but it is not exceptionally creative, or new in it’s methods. I think that it must have been a huge hit in the UK and that is why it is creating all this buzz in the US. I just find it interesting what people rave about.
Like I’ll never understand why people would love a serious man. But, I digress… go see An Education. You will be taken on a beautifully sad journey.
You get your education from your teachers, and don’t let anyone tell you differently.
I wish I had money to participate in the Black Friday shopping extravaganza that everyone in the world is raving about. This is entirely based on the constant facebook status updates that are taunting me by rubbing the sales all in my face.
Whatever rich kids. I’ll just stay home and revise a paper I wrote about Claude Chabrol proving that he is an important author of the French New Wave.
