My fun, vivacious, truly sweet-hearted, California-living, niece, Mary, works for Steven Spielberg/DreamWorks. When the studio schedules a screening for a new movie in the Detroit area, she invites my sisters and me to attend. Yay!
It’s always fun to see a good movie, and it’s even more fun when seeing the movie is free AND when you walk into the theater and see your name taped on a really great seat. Makes a girl feel kinda’ special.
And so it was that Wednesday night the hub and I went to see Bridge of Spies. And it was GOOD! REALLY GOOD!
I love Tom Hanks anyway, but boy, oh, boy.
I also love movies inspired by true events, ‘cuz I love learning a little something about history, about the brave things that people do.
The hub and I talked about it all the way home. He remembered the event even though he was only ten when it transpired. He also remembered talking about it a few years later when he was in seventh grade.
I was only two back in 1962, so the movie was the first I knew of it. And I wanted to know more, so I googled James Donovan the next day.
Wow. Big, bold and brave things.
Go see it when it comes out next week. Tell me what you think.
