Beyond Books - In the Movies

So, you may be asking, what does the audiovisual librarian for the New City Library do on her Christmas vacation break?  She goes to the movies, of course!

Over this past vacation I got to see several movies. Here are my thoughts and comments on five new movies (in alphabetical order):

The Descendants - I agree with the critics on this one; I thought it was a winner.  George Clooney is wonderful as the father/husband who has to come to terms with the way he has led his life and the choices he has made in the past.  His growing recognition of what he is and what he now needs to be for his family makes for a  wonderful film.  His older daughter, played by Shailene Woodley, gives a terrific performance also.
