In real life

It feels like autumn today.  Finally.  It’s cool, rainy, and I’m holed up watching Dan in Real Life in the middle of the afternoon.  I’m watching this because I love this movie and can watch it over and over (which is something because I don’t generally love watching movies–I’d rather curl up with a book any day) but also because this movie takes place in autumn and I’m relishing anything fall-ish right now.

I love so much about this movie–love Steve Carell and Juliette Binoche’s characters, love the setting (that house!), love the family dynamics (family crossword puzzles!).  We’ve vacationed with friends in Watch Hill, where part of the movie was filmed, so this movie also brings back great memories.
