Popcorn & a Show ~ About Elly

Hearing nuns' confession is like being stoned to death with popcorn. ~Fulton J Sheen

Looking for a popcorn quote, this one just made me laugh. I know Little Bear would love to be pelted with buttery popcorn!

Though I do love movies, I seldom go to the theater any more.  I prefer to watch them via iTunes, Netflix, or DVD.

I especially love to watch foreign films in their original language with English subtitles. One of my goals this year is to watch at least one foreign film a month.

This month, I chose the film is About Elly.The mysterious disappearance of a kindergarten teacher during a picnic in the north of Iran is followed by a series of misadventures for her fellow travelers. (click on the link to see a trailer for this movie)

I really enjoyed this film.  The scenery was beautiful and the characters were interesting. The storyline kept me in suspense up to the end.

What is the latest film you've watched?

  1. Rogue One...I will always go to the movie theater for a Star Wars movie, GiGi. But like you, I seldom venture out for a movie. It has to be a really good one. I have heard A Man Called Ove is a movie in Sweden. Look for it, if it is anything like the book, I think you will enjoy it.

    1. Arlene, I've heard Rogue One is better than the last one. I love the original three best. Thank you for the Swedish movie recommendation! I will add it to my list.

  2. We watched The Last King, a Norwegian film, on Netflix. English subtitles. Very interesting story. The popcorn quote is hilarious.

  3. I've just finished watching The Dressmaker this afternoon. I rather enjoyed it but I can imagine why people wouldn't. Quite dramatic. Love that popcorn quote.

    1. Connie, I tried the Crown and couldn't get past 10 minutes. Maybe I should give it another try.
