Remember my rambling about other passions? Tonight I'm looking forward to seeing this film. It's silly for me to say that I'm into films by and about women's issues, right? Closing out a great month with this film and you can expect to see more to follow.
Oh, this is based on a book. :-) Will report back next week.
