A Love Story and A Love Story

Shakespeare twice? Yes; it's true. First, and much to Gavin's chagrin, came "Gnomeo And Juliet", Aubrey's pay-per choice for Saturday night. An adorable take on the doomed duo of old, this one is played out to the music of Sir Elton, who co-produced the film. Aubs had already seen it once; she quickly became our narrator. "I don't want to ruin it for you, G'ma, but this part is sad," etc., etc. Adorable. And the music. Well, you know how I feel about that. 

Moving along to very early yesterday morning, Joe asked, "Nick, have we ever seen 'You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger' ? It's a Woody film." With "No" being the answer, we quickly settled in to the weirdness that it Woody Allen. The movie kicked off with a quote straight from Shakespeare's Macbeth. Gotta luv a love story. Ah, meeting this cast of characters was certainly intriguing, as their tale of discontent wove its way through what is always the smallest of worlds. Were it not for an ending that left a lot to our own discernment, we'd give it **********'s. But it didn't quite make it to the required standard. Nonetheless, we spent a couple of enjoyable, relaxing hours, prior to heading out for Soccer Sunday.
