New month, nursing home rounds have to be done, so I was fairly late getting home, last night, but after I ate up the last of the jambalaya, we put on the Netflix disc of The King's Speech, which I thought was delightful. I can't say for certain that it was the best picture of last year, but it was a very good movie. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Unlike last year when the Academy flubbed the Best Picture, I think they nailed it this year. IT was nice to watch a movie that had real historical significance, coupled with a great story of individual triumph over adversity that transposed itself into a national struggle over adversity. The message was relevant, clear, and moving while not being preachy or saccharine...which is a rare thing in this day and age. Look at The Kids are all Right by comparison which was a splendidly acted movie (and one in which had Annette Benning's character been male there would have been almost no difference)...this movie (without the lesbian nature) would not have gotten a nod for best picture (even in the new 10 movie format). Benning and Ruffalo (and Moore) were excellent in this movie, but it wasn't a best picture.

Sorry, getting off my soapbox now.

Someday, I may even see that movie...
