Undivided attention...

I really shouldn't try to watch a movie in bits and snatches. I was flipping through the HBO channels and caught the last parts of The Door in the Floor, with Jeff Bridges, Kim Basinger, and I assume Dakota Fanning's sister, Elle.

It grabbed my attention and what I saw was fascinating but I'm left with a whole lot of huh?? 'cause I'm not real good at deciphering half a flick. It's adapted from a book I suppose I should read too -
"A Widow for One Year" by John Irving - all about a dysfunctional family and how they cope (or not) with tragedy and the healing power of love, yada, yada, yada.

Guess I'll put it on my wish list and keep an eye out for an HBO re-run.

Marianne, girlfriend! When I'm flipping through channels, I don't even consider shows that haven't JUST started or are just ABOUT to start. I hate the "bits and pieces" way of watching stuff.

That said, I had no interest at all in this movie until I read what you had to say! Now I'll be looking for it.

Do you have "On Demand" with your cable/satellite service? Maybe it's there?

Oh, yeah. Where do you get those icons you use in all your posts, to introduce the subject? I just love that you do that!

miss m- thanks, I've got it in my Amazon cart. :)

Kajira - I only resort bits & pieces when I get real bored with the regular fare. Dunno about the "on demand" thing - I'll have to check - thanks for reminding me.

Glad you like my intros - I think they add a little interest. I haunt free clip art sites - I even get lucky on Google images sometimes. I should bookmark them instead of wasting time searching, huh?
