Film Friday

Gentle Friends... today I wanted to mention a great little film we saw this week.....

........... "St. Vincent" - 2014 - starring Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy, Naomi Watts and Jaeden Lieberher - the main characters of the film break down into..... curmudgeonly older guy, Bill Murray, his new neighbors - single mother, Melissa McCarthy, and son, Jaeden Lieberher - and - as the film progresses you meet Murray's "friend" Naomi Watts.

The story is built around their interactions and works on so many levels.  A very underrated film and probably some of the best acting from Murray and Watts in a very long time.  Even McCarthy, who is often waaaay over the top in her films is delightfully restrained and does a super job fleshing out her character.

Overall a delightful and very watchable film, give it a look.

That wraps up week - don't forget today is the last day to leave a comment on Monday's Post to be entered in my 8th Blogaversary Gift-a-Way.  Thanks again for stopping by, do stop again!!

Take care,

I just saw this movie a few weekends ago. I thought it was great too! Definitely enjoyed a more toned down Melissa McCarthy as well.
