Just a quick post today. Please remember to vote in my poll that's to the right of this post. I value your opinions.
I saw a movie I absolutely loved: Midnight in Paris, written and directed by Woody Allen.
Owen Wilson plays a screenwriter who is working on a novel. He's visiting Paris with his fiancee. He discovers that each night at midnight, a car will come around to pick him up and he'll be in the world of the expats of the 1920s.
He drinks with Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald and visits Gertrude Stein's apartment while she's having an argument with Picasso about a painting. The guy who plays Hemingway is hilarious, talking the same way he wrote and shouting out requests to fight someone when he isn't going on and on about war and bravery.
If you aren't aware of that literary world of the 20s, this might not be the movie for you. But if you are interested in any of the expats or open to learning about them, I think you'll enjoy this movie. Owen Wilson is so good and the awkwardness of dealing with the fiancee's family, who don't appreciate Paris, is quite amusing.
Infinities of love,
Thank you again to Maggie for being yesterday's guest postess. Maggie, we hope you recover quickly. As I already mentioned, please vote in my poll that's to the right of this post. I want to know what you think I should write next. I provide three possibilities.
