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.

The Durrells in Corfu (DVD)

The Durrells in Corfu (DVD)

I don’t normally watch BBC Masterpiece programs, but I decided to give The Durrells in Corfu a try. I loved the first season so much that I watched the first three episodes in one night. The next morning, I watched the last three. Apparently this series was adapted from Gerald Durrell’s book My Family and Other Animals. The acting of the “family members” and the storylines were superb. The story is about a widowed mother and her four children/young adults with very different personalities that move from Britain to Greece. I hope this series continues!

Longmire (DVD)

Longmire (DVD)

I’ve gotten hooked on the TV series Longmire, even staying up until 1 am to finish a series. The show is based on a mystery series by Craig Johnson. The series takes place in Wyoming near an Indian reservation. I like the characters of Sherriff Walt Longmire, his deputies, and his best friend who is a Native American. The storylines are very well written. At times justice isn’t always easily served because crimes against the reservation residents are not represented fairly.
