Last night I took a friend to dinner and a movie – her pick – in honor of her birthday.
She chose The Visitor based on a friend’s recommendation. Unusually for her, she hadn’t read up on it and had no idea what it was about, and neither did I.
It was marvelous. I’ve tried to explain why I think so, but everything I write looks smarmy and pretentious. It’s about what? Oh, just for instance: the human heart, serendipity, love, kindness, fear, brutal injustice, friendship, and music.
See it if you can. In a theater or when the DVD’s released.
I’m about to download me some Fela Kuti tunes and rock the afternoon away.
