Movies to catch

This week there are two movies that I recommend that you see....

On DVD...Hors de Prix (aka, Priceless) starring Audrey Tautou. She is sooooo adorable...I just love her. Although this film can be slow and at times you want to yell at the characters (I guess that means you're invested in them, right?) it is worth watching. Charming and fun. Don't rent if you hate subtitles!

At the theater
...The Curious Case of Benjamin Button starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett. I heard mixed reviews on this one. I thought it was an emotionally gripping story about life in general. I cried several times. For me, the most touching elements were very subtle. At times it was reminiscent of either Forrest Gump or Titanic. Not for everyone, but I think a must-see before the Oscars!

Next weekend I'm going to have a "chick-flick" weekend: He's Just Not That Into You and Confessions of a Shopaholic...stay tuned! ;)
