Movies I Love.
January 11, 2014
Rarely do I find movies I love but I have found a few lately, so it is a rare treat to be able to share them with you!!
By the way these are all on Netflix instant watch.
First is my favorite film Haute Cuisine . This is everything I love France, food, a true story and cooking. It is based on the true story of Danièle Mazet-Delpeuch and how she was appointed as the private chef for the 21st French President Francois Mitterrand. Full of interesting details of French political life, running a kitchen as a woman in a man's world and love of food. A must see!
Savannah, is an interesting true story of Ward Allen, a romantic and bombastic character who rejects his plantation heritage for the freedom of life on a river. It did not get good reviews and I am not sure how true to facts are but I did not care. The story line held me, Jim Caviezel did an amazing job. I wanted to know more about Ward Allen and his life on the river. I always enjoy a beautiful period piece!
Populaire This is a sweet love story with a real 50's vibe.I will warn there is one brief sex scene.
"Spring, 1958: Rose travels to Lisieux in Normandy, where charismatic insurance agency boss Louis Echard is advertising for a secretary, the ensuing interview is a disaster. But Rose reveals a special gift - she can type at extraordinary speed. Unwittingly, the young woman awakens the dormant sports fan in Louis. If she wants the job she'll have to compete in a speed typing competition. Whatever sacrifices Rose must make to reach the top, Louis declares himself her trainer. He'll turn her into the fastest girl not only in the country, but in the world! But a love of sport doesn't always mix well with love itself."
Lastly, is The Scapegoat, a film based on the Daphne du Maurier book of the same title. I loved this British drama. Even though the story starts off sad and tragic, love wins in the end. Kindness conquers. I love it when that happens!!.
"Set in 1952, as England prepares for the coronation, The Scapegoat tells the story of two very different men who have one thing in common - a face."
