Hello! Happy Christmas eve, eve!
I’m ready… for it to be over. I can’t wait to take down the tree and move on. I sound like a scrooge, but I’m not. I just have a dry tree and a small condo! It’s always nice to get my space back to “normal” after the glitz of the holiday.
This last week I have been entertaining myself by watching movies on my iPad. Gotta love Netflix, that is.. when it doesn’t buffer at the best part!
Anyway… I love the timeless classics. For some reason I chose to re-watch a couple that I have seen/read before. I haven’t seen these particular remakes and I have to tell you… I LOVED them both!
First I watched Madame Bovary .
When I was a kid my mom had the paperback and told me how it was banned in most countries and because of that, I had to read it. I did. I just didn’t get it. Now I get it.
It’s a must see. It really is a good movie. Madame Bovary reminds me of so many women I know today. (just sayin)
Then I watched Jane Eyre.
This is such a lovely movie. So well played.
I loved it just as much as Madame Bovary. These movies start out strangely the same. A woman in the early 19th century frantically running away from something, or someone. There is deeper meaning in both these scenes. However, they the stories could not be more different. I am not even going to try to review them for you. You just have to watch them!
If you have a chance and you like the classics, these are two really good movies to cozy up to. I just might have to re-read them now.
Hope you have a great day!
