In Darling Companion, Beth (Diane Keaton) saves a bedraggled lost dog from the side of the freeway on a wintry day in Denver. Struggling with her distracted, self-involved husband Joseph (Kevin Kline) and an empty nest at home, Beth forms a special bond with the rescued animal. When Joseph loses the dog after their daughter’s (Elisabeth Moss) wedding at their vacation home in the Rockies, Beth, distraught and angry with Joseph, enlists the help of the few remaining guests (Dianne Wiest, Richard Jenkins, Mark Duplass) and a mysterious woman (Ayelet Zurer) in a frantic search.
Over the course of several days searching, the emotional and physical toll starts affecting everyone as their mountain adventure takes them in unexpected directions – comic, harrowing, sometimes deeply emotional and, ultimately, towards a new understanding of love.
For everyone who tried to see Harry Potter this weekend and couldn’t found another gem by accident… Horrible Bosses! So funny and simple, this movie has me cracking up, screaming and laughing the whole time. Each character was so distinct and unique that you will be sure to connect with at least 1 scenario. This movie really gave a chance for the actors to play someone different and have fun with it!.
Go see it and have a great time ^_^
#ShoutOut to goldoil&diamonds blog for their posting of the upcoming movie ‘Mooz-lum’. The trailer, HONESTLY, speaks for itself
… press ► and try to tear yourself away from this.
What caught my attention most was the note at the end of the clip, “Demand It In Your City”. My thoughts are these: this movie should be one that engages because it seems like such an incredible story of human society & the search of oneself. It shows strength, diversity, love, faith, hate and history. It saddens me a little to think of the necessity for the request of geographic demand, should it not say “now playing” or “coming to a city near you”? Seems strange… DEMAND HERE!
Fortunately we can watch Mooz-lum in Toronto at the Yonge & Dundas AMC, click HERE for showtimes!

If you are down for 2 hours of non stop action, twist and turns and a very hot Matthew McConaughey, this is a must see for this weekend. I was so lucky to go to the press screening for this today and I was at the edge of my seat. With so many lawyers in my family and social circle – a movie about a hunky lawyer having a moral dilemma is exactly my recipe for a good time. Knowing the rules and the system and using it to get whatever you want? That is the life of a lawyer. Great casting, amazing story line, OUT OF THIS WORLD soundtrack and clips of LA that I recognize. Go see it.
It is so important to be book smart, street smart and to leave your emotions out of it.
Sometimes you meet someone great who wants to give you the whole world. They do everything you ask, care about you in a way you never experienced, they want more and say all the things they are suppose to. But the problem lies deep within yourself . I had a conversation last week with my beau du jour and I really didn’t realize how screwed up I was until I met him. I absolutely empathize with Natalie Portman’s character. A lot of Oos and Ahhs in this movie but it’s no blockbust.
“being colored a metaphysical dilemma i haven’t conquered yet”
The movie is based on Ntozake Shange’s play “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf.” Unlike the original play which featured only 7 women known by colors performing the collection of 20 poems, the movie has given each of the 20 characters names. Each of the poems deal with intense issues that particularly impact women in a thought-provoking commentary on what it means to be a female of color in the world.
A movie based on this book:
Star studded cast, epic directorial, breathtaking soundtrack… Before you remind me that I am Chinese and this movie is not for me – let me remind you that the issues minority women face are in fact universal and not based on racial difference. The reason why I am excited for this movie is because it powerful and emotional and of cultural importance.
Absolutely cannot wait to see this movie. PS, Tyler Perry, i love you even though you are a Virgo.
Each of the women portray one of the characters represented in the collection of twenty poems, revealing different issues that impact women in general and women of color in particular.
