Brothers

Squeezing in a double feature today, I slipped into my seat for Brothers, just as the opening credits began. It took me a while to settle into the plot, but the story of a man with a young family deployed to Iraq, captured, presumed dead, difficult dealings and drama ensue. In the final act of the film I realised that I was fully immersed. I haven't felt that way in a film in a long time. Intense, lovely, gritty and real, this drama is well worth seeing.

Thank you, and all apologies...

Thanks for your kind words concerning my podcast. I wasn't sure how good it was going to be, but positive feedback like yours ives me something to work with!

Apologies for being MIA on your blog for months. I'd taken to keeping up with other blogs by using the "Following" feature in Blogspot, and never realized that I hadn't added your blog to the list - a mistake I've now corrected.

Keep up the good work, and look forward to hearing from me more often now that I'm following ya!
