Bless You Netflix!

I'm still recovering from my trip to San Diego (and I still have some good stories to tell; nights punctuated with night-time drama, emergency vehicles and my husband extracting promises from me that I will never, ever do a certain something again) and until I'm all the way back on my feet, I'm clocking some serious couch time. Yesterday morning I slept through multiple episodes of some BBC dinosaur show with my two youngest cuddled up with me. After I pulled myself up by the bootstraps and did my work for the day, I collapsed again and stumbled upon the most fascinating movie.

Know anything about Sri Lanka and their civil war? I didn't know anything either. I'd heard about the Tamil Tigers during the aftermath of the Tsunami; my midwife went there to deliver babies. This movie paints a vivid tear-jerking picture of the life of a little girl who finds she was adopted out from that region. It has the music and flair of Bollywood, and some of the locations will stop your heart. I can't wait to do some research and learn exactly what the fighting is all about. Again, like most of the movies I recommend, it's not in English, but don't let that stand between you and an unforgettable experience.

You always find some mighty cool-looking movies. One of these days I'm going to actually stop and watch one of them!
