The Namesake (**** Very Good)
Jan and I went to see a movie called The Namesake at the Pageant Theater. It's based on the book by Jhumpa
Lahiri. A man and woman from India start a family in the United
States. Of course the children are 100% American and the divide
between generations is wide, but deep down they are a very close
family. I loved the movie and now I have put in a library request for
the book. My family wasn't close or wonderful, so watching a movie
like this is like peeking through a glass to see what a close family is
like. Enough of this maudlin stream of consciousness.
The NY Times gave it a pretty good review.
The colors are wonderful in the flowing saris... made me wonder how comfortable they are and just how foolish I would look in one :-)
I recommend the move.
