Watched a movie today

We had a full, yet relaxing, very nice weekend with Mom and Dad that I will write all about.  Tomorrow, maybe.  Today, I just wanted to drop in and talk briefly about The Jane Austen Book Club. The movie, not the book.  I read the book a few years ago…wow, maybe five or more years ago, when Mom sent it to me while I was at sea.  I think.  Regardless, I wasn’t crazy about it.  I just never really cared about the characters, and I didn’t really like how the plots of the individual Austen books were mirrored as they read them.  I watched the movie today (finished it about 20 minutes ago), and I liked it much more than I liked the book.  I got to the end and cared if they were happy.  I’m sure they changed it from the book (I don’t remember it well enough to know what was changed), and maybe that’s what made me like it.  Maybe I just needed to see the people.  Whatever.  Not going to over-analyze this.  Or analyze it all, really.  It was a nice movie.
