My friend, Marge, scored two tickets to the premier of the movie for last night.
Her husband couldn't go, so she invited me.
It was a 45 minute drive to the theater...
We got to catch up on each other's lives.
I was not looking forward to the movie for several reasons...
I hate sitting still that long (2 hours, 12 minutes)
I was hungry
I read the book. Did not like it.
Last year, on one of my treks up north, I listened to the audio book.
Didn't like it, but less.
The movie was funny, sad, thought provoking and beautifully done.
Although there were many scriptural references,
you don't have to be a bible scholar to find a message.
Go see it and let me know what you think!
