There's Nothing Like A Dame (x 2)

Saw the delightful movie, "Ladies in Lavender" starring Dame Judi Dench and Dame Maggie Smith. Set in rural England between the two wars, it's about our mind's ability to fall in love regardless of age or reality. Dench and Smith play two older sisters living together on the English Coast who discover a young man who has washed up from the sea. (It's not as cheesy as that description makes it sound.

Both Dench and Smith give a veritable Master Class in acting. They create two characters so believable you actually forget it's a movie.

Not sure what today's "theme" was, but at least I didn't see or hear anyone die today -- so it was an improvement.
