So, Hubster and I last night had a "stay at home" date. The weather in Atlanta was very bad (monsoon rain - thunder - cold front moving in), so we ordered in Chinese, and watched "Vicky Cristina Barcelona".
Great movie! Penelope Cruz definitely earned her Oscar for her portrayal of the vitriolic Maria Elena, the estranged wife of Javier Bardem's character.
I was drawn to this movie because I think Javier Bardem is a fabulous actor, and I've long loved Penelope Cruz because I'm a big Pedro Almodovar fan (some of Almodovar's movies are "Talk to Her", "Volver" and "All About My Mother".... all are definitely worth checking out!).
So anyway, Hubster and I both enjoyed "Vicky Cristina Barcelona". Very funny, and definitely something to watch with your significant other.
