Mary Shannon and the High Life

Fine Film, Fine Characters, Fine Time

Posted on: March 1, 2009

Son of Rambow” played at the Baim Movie House last night. No regrets on our movie choice this time. It’s a rather quiet film, once again much deeper than the trailer would lead you to believe. Yes, there is the aspect of two young boys making a movie, but it’s more about making a friendship. I easily recommend this British film. On my shelf, it would be next to “Driving Lessons”, another choice movie of mine.

Of course, one of the things that connects them both is they both have a Very Serious Religious Aspect that figures in the plot. Is this because I came from a spiritual commune background? I never wanted to watch the Jim Jones movies, or learn about Quakers. Maybe it’s just coincidental that they both have it, and it’s not what subconscously attracted to to either. Maybe it’s just reassuring¬† to know that there were others besides the one I was involved in around, and that we all survive in spite of it.
