Stardate 60309.43 - Maria Full of Grace Review

Cheryl and I watched Maria Full of Grace last night. Two thumbs up! Well acted, a good story, and some unexpected turns. Although the writer/director is American, so Cheryl wondered if the Spanish was really correct in terms of how people in Columbia would really speak. We once watched a Russian film made by a European director and Cheryl (who speaks Russian) could tell that the Russian had been awkwardly translated from the original Swedish or something, and it was very stilted and not really how Russians speak. But since Cheryl last learned Spanish in high school, and since I only know about 5 phrases (including how to order a beer and how to ask where the bathroom is), we couldn't really tell if Maria suffered from that syndrome.

Regardless, two thumbs up. Cheryl will be updating our NetFlix scores for these past two movies soon. And if you have NetFlix, and want to be added as a "friend" in that system, shoot me an e-mail and we can link up.
