Little Women

Have you heard, there's a new version of Little Women coming out by Lady Bird director, Greta Gerwig. I'm such a sucker for anything Little Women, and the last few remakes have been pretty sub-par in my opinion, but I'm feeling enthusiastic about this one.

Seen Any Movies Lately?

I read this book ages ago (well, technically listened to the audiobook, which I'd recommend) and now it's a movie. Looks pretty good, what do you think? Any other good movies worth watching these days?
 

Quote of the Week


“When people talk, listen completely. Don’t be thinking what you’re going to say. Most people never listen. Nor do they observe. You should be able to go into a room and when you come out, know everything that you saw there and not only that. If that room gave you any feeling you should know exactly what it was that gave you that feeling. Try that for practice.”
— Ernest Hemingway
