This Beautiful Fantastic

This Beautiful Fantastic
“This beautiful fantastic” is a heartwarming movie. It is about a woman that has OCD, does not like dealing with nature, let alone speaking with anyone. She works in a library shelving books and has a “Shhush” type boss. Bella is challenged with taming the jungle of a backyard into a garden or she will be evicted. She learns that the codger of a man next door is actually her landlord. He eventually helps her transform the space into something comparable to his fantastic garden by giving her plants. They also share the same cook. A blooming romance is also part of the story.

Logan
A fitting and poignant ending to the Logan saga.  This movie has a great message about family, friendship and taking a stand.  This movie is very dark and not family friendly.  Don’t be fooled into thinking that because there is a “little girl wolverine” that this movie is appropriate for young children.   The level of violence is needed to make the point of the story and to clearly define the mentality of the characters.  For mature X-men fans, this movie does not disappoint.  Check our catalog.

Oranges and Sunshine

I saw the movie starring Emily Watson several years ago and loved it.  It was so well done and movingly sad what these children had been put through.  I just read Margaret Humphries book and was very pleased that the movie had been true to her voice.  Great Britain had a bureaucratic system for decades, through the 1960's, to emigrate it's orphans and foster children to its' outer realms like Canada and Australia.  Margaret shares heartbreaking details of the adults that are still little children wondering what did they do wrong, missing a mommy. Her background as a social worker made her the perfect ally in their search, navigating the system for answers and providing great empathy. Check our Catalog

Agatha Raisin TV Series

Agatha Raisin TV Series
This was such a fun little series to watch.  There is only one season with a handful of episodes.  Each episode is based on one of MC Beaton’s mystery books about an amateur detective named Agatha Raisin.
 
The main character is a successful PR executive who decides to retire early and move to the Cotswolds in England.  As she attempts to make friends and fit in to her new country environment she encounters some resistance from her new neighbors.  To overcome their reluctance to take in a newcomer, she enters the village quiche competition.  Agatha doesn’t let the fact that she can’t cook stop her – she buys a quiche from one of her favorite London shops and enters it as her own. 
 
When the judge of the competition is found to be poisoned by Agatha’s quiche, she is compelled to investigate in order to clear her name and get into the good graces of her fellow village residents.
 
I think you’ll find this murder mystery series to have humor and suspense and a little romance.  What it does not have is graphic violence, gore or terribly strong language.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.  Check our catalog.

Captain Fantastic (DVD)

Captain Fantastic
You are going to love Viggo Mortensen in this.  He plays the passionate father of six who is home schooling to the extreme in the mountain forest.  The eldest played wonderfully by George MacKay.  As all teens will do, he challenges the value of the extraordinary physical and intellectual education his parents have been providing to the exclusion of modern cultural values.  For any one who is passionate about preparing their children for the world this movie speaks to the challenges of how we pass on our values.
