Saw a good one two nights ago. Elegy, with Ben Kingsley and Penelope Cruz. Very moving and would recommend it (you might need a hankie).

Don't see many movies at all. We both read a lot though.

Coco avant Chanel, the history of the rise to fame of the fashion designer Coco Chanel. An interesting French movie with sub-titles, currently doing the rounds of the movie theatres.

"Angels and Demons" - we rather enjoyed seeing all the churches we had visited than the actual "plot" of the movie. Not the best movie Tom Hanks has being in. Yes, must see the above mentioned movies ... will wait for a rainy day where we will hopefully be parked near a movie theatre. :)

"Strength of Water" - we missed it at the theatres, then saw that it was showing in Arrowtown at 2pm on Tuesday. So we drove there from Cromwell to see it. It was in their smaller 15-seat theatre and we were the only ones there so got the two-seater sofa in the back row :)
The movie was well worth the trip to see it. It is based and filmed in the Hokianga. It is very much of the 'dark brooding little NZ film' genre. There are a couple of unknown child actors in the lead roles as twins and they are wonderful. The Hokianga is at the opposite end of the country to Arrowtown, geographically and culturally. Northland generally and the Hokianga specifically provided me with my first culture-shock feelings in my own country. This film provides a view into the lives of people in those places that I suspect is typical of many.
It is one of those movies that you experience rather than watch, and one which stays with you for a time afterwards.
