Wendy and Lucy

I watched this movie last week when I had a stomach ache and in spite of my physical discomfort I really enjoyed the film. It certainly isn't an upper (Cameron made a joke about volunteering to get me some water since he knew that nothing would happen in the movie during his absence), but I loved the realism, tragedy and beauty in the banal day to day life of the characters. It felt like a brief glimpse into these individuals lives and yet seeing them over the course of a few days they felt so much more three dimensional than any other movie I've seen in a while. Plus how could I not love a movie that finds beauty in the strip-malls of the pacific northwest that constitute my own landscape at the moment.
