Memoirs of Cleopatra by Margaret George. Historical fiction...my favorite genre. Beautifully written and incredibly researched. This is one of those books that will completely transport you. I found myself thinking about the characters during the day! Also check out Margaret George’s Henry VIII. Excellent, as well.
When Things Fall Apart by Pema Chodron — Don’t let the title scare you off. A lovely book written by a generous soul who has clearly dedicated her life to helping others improve their experience in the world. A true gem of a book.
Real Love by Greg Baer — This book in many ways transformed my perspective on life’s challenges, and it laid the foundation for the greatest gift I’ve received to date: compassion. A lovely, lovely book!
Musicals: Singing In The Rain — Probably the best movie ever...definitely my top 5! And, I love this special edition with all the behind the scenes..
Saturday Night Fever — A must have.
Drama: ...And Justice For All — Al Pacino at his finest...
Scarface — Again, Pacino...I absolutely LOVE the screenplay!
Comedies: The original Arthur (with Dudley Moore) — Brilliant!
The Change Up — a bit raunchy, but impossible not to laugh..A LOT!
and City Island are a few more of my comedy faves...
Foreign: I’ve Loved You So Long — Beautifully done.
Swept Away (the original) — Exquisite.
La Femme Nikita — A++ The standard by which many subsequent female action characters have been created.
Action: The Professional - An excellent film...watch for a very young Natalie Portman.
The Transporter — Two words; Jason Statham.
