I'm so excited -- two of my favorite books from the past few years have been made into movies that are coming out in the next few weeks.
First: This is Where I Leave You
The book is funny, smart and touching. The movie has a stellar cast. This one hits all the marks. I can't wait to see it. It comes out tonight, the 19th. Anyone want to babysit an adorable 9 year old tonight? Anyone???
Second: Gone Girl
You've probably read the book. If you haven't, you've most certainly heard the hype. I loved this book. I love the thriller aspect, the psychological aspect. I loved the twist (don't worry, no spoilers here). When I heard that Ben Afflack & Rosamund Pike were cast as the two main characters, I thought, "Yes, perfect." The movie comes out October 3rd. Enough time to find a sitter....
