Team TLC movie night – My choice: “ How Green Was My Valley”
I say, “Although it did capture the issues of its time, this movie was incredibly heartbreaking.”

Lillian says, “Good, emotional, and liked some of the music.”

An extra movie night for Team Member C – “A Quiet Passion”
Incredibly moving. I am left without words.
“Poems are my solace for the eternity that surrounds us all.” – Emily Dickinson
Writing. Period. Writing is the souls expression. Expressions of pain, of love, of knowing, of not knowing. To write is to share of oneself. To write is to share love. To write is to live. – Me
The above quote struck me as I deeply understood it. I get lost in trying to understand some of her writings. Yet, I have such a deep appreciation for Emily Dickinson and her poetry as I understand from where the words come forth, even if my brain can’t make sense of it sometimes.
I read many books and content I don’t understand on the surface. Yet, I don’t let that stop me. I am drawn to take it in as I feel on some level I am understanding it.

Thomas says, “It was good.”
Lillian says, “Good, liked some of the music, suspenseful, and seemed to have the moral that it’s okay to be different.”

Team TLC extra movie yesterday afternoon. Had to watch this one at the lodge theater because the library only had blu-ray as our old portable DVD player doesn’t play blu-ray DVDs. We love getting to use the wee little theater!
I say, I adore this movie! And … a quote from the movie … “We are all from another planet. We all come from our own little planets. Dudley, the Angel.”
Lillian says, “Good, awesome Christmas movie, favorite part is after Dudley decorated the tree, and 100% recommended.”
Thomas says, “I like watching it. It’s good and I like the music.”

Team TLC movie night: Lillian’s choice: “The BFG” –
Lillian says, “Good, funny, emotional, suspenseful, mysterious, and my favorite character is Sophie.”
I say, “A magical and adventurous tale of friendship, courage, and following ones heart. Loved it!”
Thomas says, “It wasn’t like the book. The parts that were in the book were good. Read the book first!” (Thomas has read it about 7 times.)

Team TLC movie night: Lillian’s choice – “A Wrinkle in Time” (2003 Miramax version)

Thomas says, “Good, not like the book, but still good.”
