Movie Monday - 11/21/2016

I can't believe I had movies to share and I forgot all about them!

In The Light Between Oceans, a lighthouse keeper on the coast of Western Australia (Michael Fassbender) and his wife (Alicia Vikander) can't seem to have children. Not long after they buried their second stillborn child, a dead man and an infant girl in a boat wash ashore. The wife is so desperate to have a child that she convinces her husband to not report the incident and they take in the baby as their own. I won't say more because I don't want to give anything away, except to say that it was really, really good. The scenery, the acting and the story worked well together. I really liked this film.

Meryl Streep stars in Ricki and the Flash about a woman who abandoned her family to follow her dream of becoming a rock star. She is, for all intents and purposes, estranged from her family, but her ex-husband calls her back to help with a family crisis. Kevin Kline, Rick Springfield and Mamie Gummer also star in this predictable little tale. It was alright, yet entertaining.

MK out.
