This week on Netflix, I watched..
I Love You Phillip Morris
This movie was amazing. Seriously 5 Stars! It was popular in Europe when it came out but not so much in America because the plot involves homosexuality which, unfortunately, in the US isn't as accepted yet. I seriously recommend you check this out. It was so good! This is the plot from imdb:
"Steven Russell is happily married to Debbie, and a member of the local police force when a car accident provokes a dramatic reassessment of his life. Steven becomes open about his homosexuality and decides to live life to the fullest - even if it means breaking the law. Steven's new, extravagant lifestyle involves cons and fraud and, eventually, a stay in the State Penitentiary where he meets sensitive, soft-spoken Phillip Morris. His devotion to freeing Phillip from jail and building the perfect life together prompts Steven to attempt and often succeed at one impossible con after another."
I've only heard good things about this show so I decided to watch it to see what all the fuss was about. It took a while for a plot to start developing (about 2-3 episodes) and so far it's very good! I enjoy the time period it is set in as well. The clothing, music, beliefs, and societal norms of the 50s are very intriguing and they portray it perfectly! They actually do research so the show coincides with an actual chronological timeline to where the show is. The plot (of the first season) so far is just who sleeps with who. Just scandals so far but I hope it will pick up to something more.
Is it weird that before a few weeks ago, I'd never seen an episode? Probably. But my brother tells me ALL the time to watch it, so now it's my mindless show (i.e, to watch as I clean up). I love it! It's so funny and the characters are awesome. I won't say "I recommend it" because I'm probably the last person to start watching this and you've seen it already and know how awesome it is.
AWESOME! Disney, I am impressed. Because Disney was starting to go downhill with Disney Channel and all those "kid dramas". What about good old cartoons? Anyways, I loved this movie and how classic this will be. It's funny, touching, and intriguing. With beautiful visuals as well. I actually took a screen shot of it, & it's my background now. See?
Hah. I think it's pretty.
There's more, but I'll save them for a post next week. :)
Did you watch anything awesome on Netflix? I love recommendations!
