Stardate 61096.50 - Diarios de motocicleta

Cheryl and I watched Diarios de motocicleta (The Motorcycle Diaries) this weekend. According to IMDB, it is "The dramatization of a motorcycle road trip Che Guevara went on in his youth that showed him his life's calling." Overall, we thought it was pretty good, although I lack the historical context that would have perhaps made the movie more meaningful to me. I have to confess I know very little about the Cuban Revolution or Che Guevara.

I thought the acting was good (as far as I could tell with the language barrier). We did find it odd that the only option for English subtitles included closed captioning - that was a little distracting but I guess we got used to it.

Two thumbs up.

Emily and I saw this when it was new (in the theater). Needless to say she got more out of it than I did, but we both enjoyed it.
