The movie-watching slump continues! The only positives that I’ve gotten out of this is that my reading speed is still steady, and that I finally caught up with Brooklyn Nine-Nine! I have binge-watched the first two seasons, and I really enjoy the show. It took me long enough to get hooked, so now I’m catching up with the third season. I also started watching The Office, and so far I’m only in the second season – lots more watching to do. With that, here are the movies I’ve seen this month:
Therese is a salesperson working in the toy department of a store when she encounters Carol. Carol is a mother of a young girl who is going through a divorce from her persistent husband. Both women were at crossroads in their lives when they intertwine and end up falling in love.
The Valentines edition of Thursday Movie Picks continues! This weekly event is hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves so if you're interested, go and check out her blog and the entries of other participants. For this week, it's all about May-December romances. Here are my picks this week:
My grandparents had been married for 50 years; they threw a party to celebrate that milestone. Their marriage did look perfect, but there were some tell signs that indicate that they too had ups and downs. My grandmother is very helpful; too helpful that sometimes people tend to abuse her generosity, and it irks my grandpa. My grandfather has a passive-aggressive attitude that sometimes, is kind of hilarious (like he would tout his grandkids not to eat sweets, but keeps a stash of dark chocolate for us if we were craving for sweets). Sometimes you’d hear them bicker, but at times they can be really endearing. It’s not hard to imagine a couple being married that long; that is an achievement in itself. But what would happen if a life changing circumstance would come between them?
