I hope all of you had a great weekend. I was busy here with a special order, speaking with my family, and playing in the garden aaannndddd.... watching a few movies to share with you. I was happy to find one of my all time faves from my early days. I was 20 when I first saw this movie and enjoyed it as much now as then. I watched it on TCM and in fact they have featured it a few times this year.
I will tell you it is not for the faint of heart. So my none scary movie waters may not want to try this one.
After their father dies, young twin brothers Holland (Martin Udvarnoky) and Niles (Chris Udvarnoky) spend their summer playing around the farm, while their mother (Diana Muldaur) hides in mourning. Holland is the more mischievous of the two, while Niles is shy and quiet. Their grandmother, Ada (Uta Hagen), has taught Niles how to project himself into other people and animals as a harmless game. But when a series of deadly tragedies strike the family and friends, only Ada suspects the truth.
It is a true psychological thriller.
The second movie I watch was an amazing story of a young girl that, after an accident, didn't age. This movie is so well told and filmed that I have actually watched it twice.
Blake Lively plays this part with excellence. As do the rest of the cast. Michiel Huisman, Harrison Ford, and Ellen Burstyn to name a few of the outstanding cast.
Adaline Bowman (Blake Lively) has miraculously remained a youthful 29 years of age for nearly eight decades, never allowing herself to get close to anyone lest they discover her secret. However, a chance encounter with a charismatic philanthropist named Ellis Jones (Michiel Huisman) reawakens Adaline's long-suppressed passion for life and romance. When a weekend with Ellis' parents threatens to expose the truth, Adaline makes a decision that changes her life forever.
I highly recommend both of these films and hope you enjoy them.
Have a great day today!
