Tanner & I watched an amazing movie the other night: The Lion in Winter: Starring Peter O'Toole as Henry II, Katherine Hepburn as Eleanor of Aquitaine- and featuring the film debut of both Anthony Hopkins & Timothy Dalton (as lovers!) This movie is basically a Christmas tale of a dysfunctional family- a medieval dysfunctional family with sword fights & secret plots to overthrow the king & people being locked in towers etc. The dialogue is so clever and witty with biting insults at every turn. Such great acting by Hepburn and O'Toole- it makes me want to go out and rent everything they've ever been in. The only other movie I'd seen Hepburn in was Suddenly, Last Summer and she was amazing in that as well. O'Toole I'd seen in that early 90's chestnut King Ralph.
On a sadder note, former President Gerald Ford died yesterday- like a lot of Americans, he just couldn't live in a world without James Brown...
