Founder’s Faves — Books and Movies

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!

Wedding Crashers

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.
