and if it’s not alright
it’s not the end.
Isn’t that just lovely? It’s a line from a movie I got to preview tonight with a free pass scored by my friend Julie.The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. It opens soon, and has assembled for it’s cast quite possibly every perfect amazing actor from across the pond.
It’s a bit of a slow burn, and I think demographically it’s really going to speak to anyone past the age of 35, give or take a few exceptional 34 year olds. Themes of renewal and forgiveness and starting over tie in and connect stories that just make you smile. Our audience was particularly vocal and clapped and cheered and I love that. Love it.
I cried. I could have really gotten into it. This is a movie Chris would have loved. He of all people would have grasped onto the idea of no limits on do overs, of embracing the life that is still left. Now I could cry all over again.
There’s a lot of change happening in the Tribe. Ringo is embarking on something fresh and glorious and scary and new. I’ve got a project in the works with my new friend that is really marinating heavily in my creative brain. Friends are preparing to move away. Lotta change. . . and change can be scary…beyond.
But we must never give up hope that a really fabulous day, with amazing and breathtaking experiences is ahead.
