Why won't you go to the movies alone? Striking out on lone adventures is good for the soul!

Waiting for it to be on Netflix! My neighbor was kind enough to put me on their account, which is awesomely kind of them! Won't go by myself to the movies and I have no one to go with - that's no fun! Susie

Have any of you seen the previews of Beguiled?  It was loosely based on another movie with the same story line of a Civil War union soldier being nursed to health by Confederate women.  Clint Eastwood was the unfortunate victim.  Sofia Coppolla produced & directed.  The film is a pick in the Cannes Film Festival.



This movie is on my list for the holiday weekend! Nicole Kidman is killing it lately! I completely binge-watched "Big Little Lies"...the mini-series adapted from the novel. REALLY well done!
