Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
Today I offer for your consideration the winner in the Best Foreign Language Film Category at the 2012 Academy Awards, A Separation.
A Separation is the first film from Iran to win an Academy Award. It is also the first to be nominated for Best Original Screenplay, an award that went to the excellent Midnight In Paris.
If you can't stand reading subtitles, then A Separation is not the movie for you. However, I was enthralled by the plot and the outstanding acting as a married couple heads toward divorce because the wife wants to go to America to make a better life for their daughter, while the husband feels he should stay in Iran to take care of his father, who has Alzheimer's Disease.
Hiring a caretaker for the elderly man only makes the situation worse.
A Separation has the Highest Janie Junebug Seal of Approval. I absolutely love this movie.
Dee, I doubt if this new-to-DVD film will be in your library -- at least not for a while. Perhaps you can add it to your list of Must See movies because I think you will be impressed by it.
For those of you who still have high temps and humidity, as I do, then stay in and watch a good movie. If your weather is cooling off, then please don't tell me. I don't want to hear about a high of 80 when I'm sweltering.
It's not the heat or the humidity alone. It's both.
We expect a 100% reality of miserable weather for at least two more months. I just keep telling myself that I shall never again shovel snow.
Infinities of love,
