My Chest Hurts

The little bones in my chest are hurting today, can't really get a deep breath.
That's the leftovers from the many broken bones I've had over the years. Little aches and pains for no real reason.

I bought the dvd Dinner with Friends last night when I was at the grocery. It was in the $3 clearance bin.
I had seen it few years ago but didn't remember much on it. Was hoping to review it for my cooking blog, but sadly, there isn't really a lot to do with the actual food. It's more a prop or backdrop then center piece.
I had no idea either that it was based on a play or that a major Canadian producer/director had done this one. Goes to show what you learn when you pay attention.
But for those who have not seen this film, it's about two couples who have been friends for over a decade and the ripple effect the divorce of the one couple has on the other. What you end up with is 4 relationships that have broken down in very different ways, almost like the two sets of best friends are the ones going through the divorce and not just the one couple.

I think we have to hand it to Julie/Julia, as a new standard for food movies has now been set.


  1. Just dropping by from SITS! Have a great week!


  2. I haven't seen the film, but I can identify with that premise - when a long-term relationship breaks up, it affects everyone who's close to the couple. Sad but true.

    Visiting to welcome you to SITS :)

  3. You know, you're right. Julie & Julia was really a great movie, especially for the foodies out there!

    Welcome to the SITS community!

  4. I don't think I've seen it...but perhaps it will go on my Zip list.
