Movie Monday - 4/27/2015

Listen Up Philip, starring Jason Schwartzman, Elisabeth Moss and Jonathan Pryce is a comedy about an author whose second novel is about to come out. In all his self-absorbed glory, he creates quite a bit of drama and chaos in his life - including bitching out a former lover and other friend of his for their supposed lack of support for him and his art. His narcissism also causes trouble in his present relationship. It had some funny parts, but the movie wasn't all that enjoyable for me to watch, as I have enough people like that in my real life and frankly, I am over them.

Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds star in The Woman in Gold. The film is set in the late 1990s and is based on a true story. Maria Altmann enlisted the help of her friend's attorney son to reclaim original paintings that were stolen from her family's home in Austria by the Nazis. It was very good.

MK out.
