I’ve been sitting here on the couch, quite comfy, trying to convince myself to get up and get the camera. Then I could upload the photos I took of the last 3 days that we spent in Boston. I could talk about our mini-break and the places we went and the food we ate. Or I could just sit here and be lazy and not upload any pictures and talk about how we went to the movies again yesterday.
You can see by the lack of photo that the lazy blogger in me won out.
So yesterday we went to see Doubt. It was very different from Valkyrie, certainly, and it was very very good. Meryl Streep delivers a fabulous performance as a rigid and self-righteous nun. Amy Adams is fantastic as a confused but hopeful young nun. And Philip Seymour Hoffman does a terrific job portraying a priest who clearly loves his parish. The storyline itself is quite simple but the themes and emotions and conflicts are quite complex. I smell Oscar nominations.
Don’t have any doubts (get it? doubts? I crack myself up) and go see Doubt.
