The Reader

Alter the media!  Two posts in one day!  I wanted to see this movie for several reasons: 1. the luminous Kate Winslet 2. Ralph Fiennes-’nuff said 3. reading as foreplay?  I’m there!  I never got around to seeing it in the theatre though,  so when I saw that it was going to be on a movie channel, I set the PVR right away.  Now that I’ve actually watched it-I’m glad I was in the privacy of my own home.  I don’t much like to cry in public, so the safety of my own living room was a bonus.  What a sad, lovely, complicated movie.  I think that I finally understand the concept of living a life of quiet desperation.  I don’t want to spoilt it for anyone, but anyone who has made a choice that affects another’s life will be moved by this movie.

It’s not a film of action or adventure, but of love, shame, regret and possibly redemption.  Even though it made me cry, I did love this movie.  I also completely understand why Kate Winslet won an Oscar.
