Shine on, Harvest Moon

Really enjoyed seeing "Everything is Illuminated" tonight. It marks Liev Schreiber's debut as a movie director and stars Elijah Wood as a young man searching for the women who saved his grandfather's life during World War II.

Wood's character is quite the collector -- not of valuable items, but of items of importance only to his family (grandma's dentures, grandpa's eyeglasses, etc.). It's his touching way of never forgetting the past.

He wears these thick framed eyeglasses that magnify his already expressive eyes.

I've never been in the former U.S.S.R. This adventure in Ukraine really makes me want to go.
