Were the World Mine

Standard


Were the World Mine is a sweet indie movie, about a young gay boy living in a small town. He is picked on and shunned by most of the boys in his all-boys school. Then Shakespeare comes along. The senior play is A Midsummer’s Nights Dream and magic happens. *girly sigh*

I love the mom in this movie, she’s a normal, average woman who is trying to do right by her son, but is angry and resentful at all she’s had to give up.She’s human and hurting, and trying so hard.

Anyway, it’s a lovely movie, I’ve watched it twice.

Today’s Special

Standard


While this is an American movie, it is an indie film, and it’s about a different culture within America, so I’m counting it.

First get your Indian meal ready, this is some great India food porn. Samir takes over running his father’s Indian restaurant, Tandoori Palace. Doesn’t every city have a Tandoori Palace? In doing so, he works with an amazing Indian chief who embraces life. Samir learns more then how to cook wonderful Indian food, he comes to terms with his life, his parents, and what he really wants for his future.

This is a movie I could watch over and over again. It is sweet and funny, and the advice the cook Samir hires is this amazing guru live life to the fullest kind of guy.

This movie is fine for the whole family to watch, but probably won’t be interesting to younger children.
