Over the past couple of days, I have watched a couple of really good movies.
Gary Shaller is at a crossroads in his life: his job is going nowhere, his wife, Dora, drives him crazy, and he passed his thirtieth birthday four years ago. Add to that his best friend Paul seems to become more successful every time he breathes. Gary is feeling depressed and dejected… until he meets Anna. She’s beautiful and smart; she’s sexy and funny. Best of all, she’s crazy about Gary. Anna is the girl of Gary’s dreams…literally. And that’s the problem. Gary can only see Anna in his dream life, so he’s got to find a way to carry on the most satisfying relationship of his life, in his dreams. His quest for lucid dreaming techniques introduces Gary to some crazy characters who ultimately give him a new perspective on life. Starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Penelope Cruz, and Danny Devito. Great movie!!
Emily Jackson lives a fast-paced life. Always on the go, able to talk around the clock, with a sensitive soul she loves playing matchmaker for her friends. It’s Emily’s gay roommate and frequent companion Peter, who becomes again the subject matchmaking skills when handsome new photographer assistant Paolo arrives at the Vogue offices, where Emily works. She makes it her mission to bring the two men together. Unfortunately for her, she is so busy arranging a love connection between Peter and Paolo that she remains completely blind to the one suitor who longs to provide her with the loving companionship that she so cheerfully arranges for others. And so it does make sense that Peter, a screenwriter in the making, starts telling the story from his own point of view. Written by kerrsmith2306 Starring Brittany Murphey…it is very “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” Loved it!!
UNDER THE SAME MOON (LA MISMA LUNA) tells the parallel stories of nine-year-old Carlitos and his mother, Rosario.

Written by Fox Searchlight Staring Kate del Castillo, America Ferrera, and Los Tigres del Norte. Really really good movie!! Had me crying 1/2 of the time!!
