I'm not a huge movie person--gasp! It's not that I don't like them, because I do. I even have favorites, some of which I'll mention below. I think it's just that I don't get to go to the movies that often so I've lost the connection that I used to feel when my husband and I, or my friends and I, would go every week. And given the choice, I'd rather watch the TV characters that I watch every week than to a movie that looks okay so I taped it. However, there are some movies that definitely resonate with me. Here are three:
Dirty Dancing: It represents that "teenage crush" time of my life. I think I saw it 13 times and had a huge crush on Patrick Swayze.
Avalon: This movie came out in 1990 and is about a Polish American family that comes to America. I went to see it with my friends in college, then rushed back to my dorm, called my mom, and asked her how come I wasn't told that they were making a movie about our family. That's how well I can relate to it.
Sound of Music: My all-time favorite movie. I can watch and sing it all day.
What are yours?
