Letters to Juliet

I had a banner weekend last weekend since I had the chance to see two movies, including Letters to Juliet, which I saw with my daughter Maya, who had seen the movie previously with her grandma.

You pretty much have the idea of the movie if you've seen even one preview or trailer. Amanda Seyfried, currently seen everyone it seems, answers a letter seeking love advice written fifty years ago and left at Juliet's wall in Verona. The result is the ever-wonderful Vanessa Redgrave traveling to Italy with her grandson to find her lost love, Redgrave's real life husband Franco Nero (yum!).

Sweet, light movie. No suprises and nothing very grand to remember for the longterm, but a pleasant way to spend a little time on a weekend afternoon. Maya, however, declared the movie to be "the best movie I've ever seen in my whole life." Her whole almost six years of life!

If you've seen the movie, what did you think? If not, do you plan to go to the theater, see the movie on DVD, or skip it entirely?

Completely predictable and very light - I agree. But, and I will only confess this to you, I cried during the movie. I don't really know why since it wasn't sad but the scenes with Vanessa Redgrave - oh my - really tugged at my heart. Maya is cute - the best movie of her whole six years, my goodness!

If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things by Jon McGregor

The May selection for my work book club is Jon McGregor's If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things (2002). The novel follows various individuals in one neighborhood on a particular day, an ordinary day that ends with a terrible tragedy.

Here's the short set of questions I e-mailed to book club members yesterday, along with my own responses.

Did you have a favorite character, or one that spoke to you the most? Who and why?
The father with the burned hands is the one who stayed with me the most after reading the book.

Did you notice that the day on which the events unfold is actually the same day that Diana, Princess of Wales, died? Does knowing that make any difference in how you see the story? I wouldn't have made the connection if I hadn't just watched some of the coverage of the Royal Wedding. To quote the author, he chose this particular day because his novel is about how ". . .everyday miracles of life and death go unwitnessed in favor of celebrity and sensati…
