(And here I should define that term as romantic comedies, romantic dramas or nearly anything produced by the BBC--Sherlock excepting.)
|The Secret Life of Walter Mitty|
What we saw was delightful. I hesitate to recommend movies because there is such a wide variety of tastes in that area, but I really thought this movie was delightful. It is a grown-up's movie, not because of anything inappropriate, but simply because it is aimed at grown-ups. In fact, part of what I enjoyed was that it was so completely appropriate! No underwear, no bathroom humor, no silly romance. You may not believe this, but the title of Father was honored, even hallowed. It was a simple and lovely story.
Ben Stiller starred, produced and directed the picture. Suddenly respected. Who knew.
