Postcards from the Edge
Sometimes, after a long, busy weekend, I like to watch a movie from my Netflix "Instant Queue" on my laptop. Since I usually have the attention span of a two-year-old when it comes to most movies, watching one on my laptop is perfect. I can take it with me to any room (or porch, as I did tonight - 75 degrees! Are you kidding me!) and do other tasks while I halfway watch. Tonight I watched "Postcards from the Edge," a movie based on Carrie Fisher's semi-autobiographical book by the same title. I knew the movie had to be good when Shirley MacLaine and Meryl Streep play the leading roles (loosely based on Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher's true-life mother-daughter relationship, with all its drama and ups and downs). I enjoyed it; it was dry and funny and very well-written. Oh, and the 1990 Dennis Quaid wasn't too shabby to watch during certain scenes, either. He's aged quite nicely over the years, don't you think?
