Rachel Getting Married

"Longstanding family conflicts resurface when drama queen Kym (Anne Hathaway, in her first Oscar-nominated role), a former model who's been in and out of rehab for 10 years, returns to her parents' home just before her sister Rachel's (Rosemarie DeWitt) wedding. Debra Winger co-stars as the girls' emotionally distant mother in director Jonathan Demme's critically acclaimed portrait of family angst and unrest." courtesy of netflix

I heard this movie was great but I could tell it was something I had to be in a mood in to watch so I had always put it off and I watched it today, mid-way through I did feel a little ADD and wanted to turn it off and return to it later but my mom wanted to keep watching so we did. its a very sad movie, not in an emotional way. I'm not sure if it actually is a Sundance movie but it is shot that way, which I love and hate at the same time, Sundance movies (and this movie) tend to leave it up to you to piece certain things together. but Anne Hathaway did do a great job regardless. I wouldn't watch it twice, but would you ever watch 'Schindlers List' twice?

The International

"Interpol agent Louis Salinger (Clive Owen) and New York Asst. DA Eleanor Whitman (Naomi Watts) team up to expose a global financial institution's money laundering, arms dealing and other illegal rackets in this tense thriller from director Tom Tykwer. As the pair race from New York to Milan and beyond to pursue their case, they soon discover that the ruthless bank will stop at nothing to continue its profitable activities." courtesy of netflix
this movie was really great, it was very intense and captivating it was very "clive owen" although a little more practical than 'Children of Men' the architecture in the movie is actually really great and amazing and the designer in me loved that fact but it's just an overall great movie. Highly recommended : )
