I escaped the house last night, and went to the theater. One of my favorite places to go alone.
I saw the movie Chrystal. If you get the chance to go, do. I enjoyed my escape. It was a dark film, set in the South. The movie has that haunting , and Southern gothic feel of Tennessee Williams and William Faulkner.
The physical landscape of this movie looked familiar and unfamiliar to me. The dirt curvey roads and the trailer houses. The people, and the conversations, I have heard peices of them. The soundtrack to this movie was really beautiful, if you like folk music.
The story is one of redemption, and how sometimes you work so hard for it, and it is not yours.
I came home and hugged my babies, and smelled the tops of their heads.
