The first film I watched was Drop Dead Gorgeous. This hilarious 1999 mockumentary is set in Minnesota and boasts actresses like Amy Adams, Kristie Allen, Brittany Murphy and Kristen Dunst. The mother from Juno was in it as well. I think she’s either Minnesotan, or is really good a portraying one. The characters, the scenes, the dialog, was hilarious, on purpose or not. I was laughing too hard to take the film seriously. I loved it!
The other film I recently watched was in the theaters and that was The Young Victoria. I really enjoyed this film. The sets, the costumes, the acting, the dancing, the cinematography, all of it was superb! Emily Blunt is one of the most talented actresses I’ve seen. She was so spunky and so intriguing that I fell in love with her. I know the story is romanticised, but I didn’t mind one bit!
