Well written, good acting...

Set in a small rust belt town in Pennsylvania, chief of police Del Harris takes on an investigation when the son of the woman he loves is accused of murder. (fiction, based on a novel by Phillpp Meyer

The Zone Of Interest  (PG-13, German w/English subtitles)

 

Won Oscar for Best International Feature Film (Poland)

Won Oscar for Best Sound

Oscar nominated for Best Picture, Director, and Adapted Screenplay

 

An excellent, but disturbing film, it is not one that you watch for entertainment. This is the story of the commandant of the Auschwitz concentration camp and his family, as they live an idyllic life just on the other side of the wall from the horrors of the camp. It is unlike most films made about the Holocaust in that it does not take the viewer inside the camp, yet we are keenly aware of what is taking place. At the end of the film are pictures from the Auschwitz Holocaust Memorial.

 

Don’t be put off because of the subtitles. It is easy to follow, and the pictures alone speak dramatically.

 

Streaming on Max, for rent on Prime Video

@SummerIsTooHOT   I liked many of the Grantchester episodes!  Mostly I like Robson Green so I watch some of the not so good ones too.  It it getting long in the tooth though.  Hard to believe they are going to try and do another season without it seeming to be stale.

At 10pm ET I am watching this on PBS TONIGHT:

 

The Trouble with Maggie Cole, 2020, Drama, 1 Season-6 episodes. Maggie Cole is the self-appointed oracle of her close-knit community. Maggie makes it her business to know a little bit about everyone's lives, and certainly pays no attention to the adage that `those in glass houses shouldn't throw stones'.

 

***  I saw it back in 2020 on television ***

I just finished watching "Secrets of the Forbidden City" on PBS. Totally fascinating how huge this structure is, all manual labor and that it has survived the chronic earthquakes. Anyone else saw this?

(1 comment) DISCUSSION.

 

Anyone have a PRIME Subscription or sign up EACH YEAR for their Free Trial like I do?  🤔 

 

I head straight to the BRITISH STUFF to "binge" before my trial ends!!! You are allowed to sign up ONCE A YEAR.

 

Lol, I cannot wait until this June 2024 [my one year mark from last year 2023 sign up] 

 

Thanks,

Nicole  👵

@SummerIsTooHOT   I did sign up once but they wanted lots of money for the movies I wanted to see and their own content was not so great.  I cancelled after the trial, butI did notrealize they made an annual offer.

 

@MaVolta The movie I want to see is Oppenheimer so I may try to get Peacock for a month 😉.  I plan on ditching Acorn for Britbox this summer when my yearly expires.  I  do contribute to PBS every month to keep up my streaming service.  Website is klunky though.

@SummerIsTooHOT  - I saw it years ago! It’s very well done like all of the British period dramas. If I remember, it’s based on a novel, like most of them are.

Yesterday, we watched the movie, Oppenheimer. Excellent movie, and the actors were outstanding. It’s deserving of all the awards. It’s currently streaming on Peacock. It is a 3 hour movie, so plan to watch it when you have plenty of time to enjoy it. It moves pretty fast, so it won’t feel that long!

@MaVolta   Do you like your Peacock subscription?  I have been looking for a site to stream newish movies.

@LaDolceVita  - I only took a one month subscription to see this movie. You can check their website to see what’s streaming before you sign up.

 

Of the streaming services, I tend to watch mostly Netflix. I want to try out Paramount + one of these days. From time to time, I will sign up for  a month of Hulu if they have something I want to see. I also have a subscription to Max, but that’s because they have series shows I like to watch.

 

I like Prime Video, but you have to rent almost all of the newer titles. The rental fee isn’t too bad though in most cases, and I try to get the digital discounts with Amazon day deliveries. There are more recent titles in the ‘free with Prime” and sometimes older titles that I enjoy watching.The thing that gripes me about Prime Video is that if I want ad-free, I now have to pay an additional $7.99 or something, in addition to the annual Amazon Membership fee that keeps going up. I mean really, how many yachts, houses, and cars does one guy need! 🙄

1 comment (4/1/24)  📺  @LaDolceVita , since you know more about PBS than I do - couple of questions please.

 

[1] NEW Masterpiece or RETURNING series happen 4 times each year = Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter?

 

[2] So NEXT batch should be THIS MONTH as part of Spring batch? With Nolly finishing in March, there will be a break. I seem to remember April 17th being a start date???

 

Lol, let me know IF I have totally confused you. I am confused in regards to PBS programming. 🙄

@SummerIsTooHOT   Haha I do not pay that much attention to the schedule.  But I have been watching PBS for a LONG time and do remember my favorites. We had discussions dedicated to TV and especially PBS which I loved back in the here on AARP.  

 

 BTW I was a bit Acorn fan for several years, looks like I will be canceling this summer.  Kinda dud now.  

Are you familiar with Seniorlearn.org?  they have a long running PBS discussion.
