Bernie and I haven’t been to a movie theater in a long time. We prefer to watch movies in the comfort of our own living room wearing pj’s. It is nice to be able to turn it off if we don’t like it and leaving for a snack or to go to the bathroom is way more convenient. But even at home we don’t watch a lot of movies, especially in the summer. A few days ago, I followed the urge to check out three movies that I’ve wanted to see, “Butler”, “The Book Thief” and “12 Years as a Slave”. All three were about individuals living through some difficult historic times. Acting was amazing. Just thought I’d recommend them…and I am open to others making recommendations.
