|The chemistry between Ryan and Michelle is electric in Blue Valentine.|
Occasionally, I take a little time for myself. Go for a walk. Have a lingering coffee. Read a book.
Today, after I dropped them off, I noticed the cinema next door had a morning session of Blue Valentine. I thought, 'What the hell, a few hours by myself in the movies would be great.' Feeling a wee bit guilty, but pretty excited by the idea, I headed for the box office.
It's been a bad news week and I thought a break away from reality would be really welcome. A break from the constant stream of updates and bulletins. A great luxury, I know. It's just a shame Blue Valentine is so heart wrenching. I really enjoyed it, the acting was fantastic and it was a well directed film, but I came out exhausted. I now also have a bit of a girl crush on Michelle Williams.
Do you ever sneak off and do something indulgent like go to the movies on a weekday morning?
