Need a movie for the holidays?
If you've had enough of Charlie Brown's Christmas and The Grinch (or even It's A Wonderful Life)...but still want to sit in front of the TV with a movie - try OFF THE MAP. It's a sweet, quirky and moving flik. It stars Sam Elliott and Joan Allen and takes place in remote New Mexico.
Briefly: a woman is remembering a time in the early 70's when she was 12 years old and her father was struck down with a bout of depression. Don't worry, while this movie does delve into depression in a touching way, you're going to want it to go on after the credits end...
Amazing colours in New Mexico and truly amazing acting. (The young girl is played by Valentina de Angelis, who is new to me and a disarmingly good actress.)
If you see it (or have seen it) - feel free to leave a note.
Have a Happy New Year
I have ALL the Ian Rankin books. ove him.
