Redemption. With lots of butter …

God:  it’s another one like The English Patient.  Similarly incredulous that I haven’t ever seen Monsoon Wedding.

Thing is:  I went into it expecting a lighthearted frolic (just look at the reviews … and it’s filed under ‘comedy’ on Netflix), but found it altogether darker and more .. um .. complex.  Ultimately redemptive, of course … so there I was again:  swamped in joy and grief, sobbing into the remote control (hankies were too far away).

<sigh>

While Agneta & Lisa were here we watched Julie & Julia:  brilliant!  And similarly redemptive. Joy … with less grief.  And with lots more butter.  God bless Meryl Streep.  And Bon Appetit!
