Please, Go

That is: please go see the movie "Please Give." I haven't been to a theater in months, and then it was almost a year before that, and tonight's movie is going to change my prior movie-house laziness. Yes, I paid nine dollars for a ticket and even more for my popcorn and iced tea (I can't seem to attend a movie without these things or at least some iteration of them), but it was all worth it. This movie charmed me in ways I didn't know I could be charmed anymore. It made me a little bit sad, too, but nothing that didn't quickly soften from red antique chair to busy street.

Ah, St. Louis, sometimes you really have me. Tonight, hot as it is, I loved you walking down Delmar with my mother at half past nine o'clock.

Thanks for the tip! I'm also lazy about movies and hadn't even heard of this one. I checked out a preview online -- is that Sarah Vowell making a cameo in one scene?

It was such a nice surprise to see it -- I think it was Sarah Vowell, but I'm not certain. Let me know what you think :)
