Movies

I decided to watch a movie tonight, and keystricken said she would join me, provided I could come up with a movie she was interested in. So I gave her five choices:

- Amélie
- Blues Brothers
- Down with Love
- Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
- Playing By Heart

I asked her whether she could see any connection among the five movies. She said, "well, with the exception of Blues Brothers, I'd say you're feeling lonely."

Huh.

We watched "Down with Love", which was, as usual, excellent.
