Movie Night: Ladies in Lavender

March 22 2020

Extra movie night for me last night, as Lillian postponed our team movie night to tonight.

“Ladies in Lavender.”

I’ve had this on my ‘to watch’ list for years, mainly due to starring Maggie Smith and Judie Dench. Both of them were superb in their roles. I also loved their housekeeper, Dorcas, played by Miriam Margoyles. Set in Cornwall, slow and simple, with a tad bit of mystery.

Movie Night: The Little Mermaid

Team TLC Extra Movie – Lillian’s choice: “The Little Mermaid”

Lillian says, “Good, liked the music, liked the moral, liked Elizabeth and Elle.”

I say, “Classic tale with a weird twist. A traveling circus in Mississippi, selling healing water, and with a real live mermaid. Definitely not Oscar worthy acting, yet loved Shirley MacLaine in her role.”

Thomas says, “It was hilariously bad. My favorite line was “rising orchestral”. 😜🤣 (The DVD is stuck with the closed captioning set to on. So, we had a verbal description for the music!!)
