A Movie and a Song

It's a rainy weekend here in Chicago, the kind that's perfecto for staying in and watching movie after movie. Too bad I have to start working soon. Bleh. I just finished watching "Penelope," which is a really cute and colorful modern fairytale that delivers a sweet message about accepting yourself as you are, snout and all. Yeah, yeah. But, come on, we can all use those reminders here and there. Some of the best bits come from Penelope's parents, which were brilliantly cast and played by the hilarious Catherine O'Hara (a Christopher Guest regular) and Richard E. Grant (a long-lost love from "Withnail and I").

The movie ends with this infectiously pretty song by Sigur Ros, called Hoppipolla.
