The other movie is Selma. I have not seen this yet and plan to watch it this weekend. I am very excited to watch it. I love movies that tackle difficult yet important historical times or issues. It seems like these days American history gets glossed over and that is a shame. I have a daughter in 9th grade who has not been nearly as informed about US history especially civil rights, slavery, or suffrage as well as I was growing up. As a parent and a history nerd, I male sure to pick up the slack. I feel like it is so important as a woman, minority, and American to understand where we started and how far we have come. We watched The Butler (AMAZING) and this opened up a great conversation for us. I hope Selma will do the same.
Other new to DVD movies for this week:
Black or White ft Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer (also on my must watch list!)
The Last Five Years ft Anna Kendrick
Mad Max Collector's edition ft Mel Gibson
Miss Julie ft Colin Farrell and Jessica Chastain
A Few Best Men ft Rebel Wilson
This is just a few of the ones worth mentioning
