This weekend’s Pizza Toppings at Corner Pizza:
- Artichoke Hearts
- Italian Sausage
- Red Onion
Woman in Gold
This week, I made the pizza topping choices and the movie selection. I’d read a little about the movie and wasn’t sure I would like it. But normally, when there’s art in a film, I do.
- Big Eyes
- The Monuments Men
- Ocean’s Twelve (I think that was the one about art, and not Eleven or Thirteen, but I like both of those)
- and even My Left Foot.*
I also usually like movies about World War II (too many to list, but The Monuments Men is one of those, too.)
And you can’t go wrong with Helen Mirren.
The story was engaging, and I loved the courtroom scenes. As a bonus, one of my favorite actresses from Downton Abbey popped in as a judge (although not on the Supreme Court). It was based on a true story, something I always find intriguing. I’m not a fan of time travel in movies (or books), but I do like flashbacks, and in Woman in Gold, the scenes set in Austria when the main character was young were powerful and emotional.
And the pizza was great!
*What are some other movies about art or that have works of art in them?
