Edie Jarolim is one scary lady.
She’s brainy. She has a wicked sense of humor. She’s thoughtful. And she’s a great writer.
Why is that so scary?
The Pet Travel Book Club Reviews a Movie
Following in Edie’s footsteps, Stepping into Edie’s shoes, Accepting the baton Edie has passed, Following Edie is an intimidating prospect. It has me worried about writing clichés (see above). I’m obsessed with split infinitives (what is a split infinitive, anyway?). And don’t get me started on whether I’ll ever be able to pick books as charming as those Edie has already reviewed.
I decided to break with the past by making my first review of a film. Great idea, huh?
- A film takes less time to watch so perhaps more people will take part with my first review.
- And what’s not to like about movies that involve animals?
My initial film choice won all kinds of awards and features a great, great actress. But it’s a bit bleak. And I didn’t want my first review to end with suicide attempts or anyone seeking comfort in a full box of Twinkies.
So I decided to go with beautiful and upbeat.
A Visit to Netflix and 83 Minutes
Entering the Pet Travel Book Club is easy. All it takes is watching a lovely film for 83 minutes. How lovely?
Here’s a taste:
On February 16, I’ll post a review at A Traveler’s Library and here at Something Wagging. Stop by and join the fun by commenting whether you’ve seen the movie or not.
