Wedding Movie Recommendation! 60s Romantic Dramedy: Goodbye Columbus

Movies about young love in the 60s are inevitably more weighty than those of today. Goodbye Columbus is no rom-com, although it does have a classic meet-cute by a country club pool. Based on novellas by Philip Roth, that’s where it parts ways with today’s flights of fancy about young relationships. Goodbye Columbus deals with issues of assimilation, social mobility and is capped off by a gigantic wedding that is a sight to behold. Be prepared for dramedy – leaning more towards the drama side.

Wedding Movie Recommendation!

Everybody loves Mr. Rogers.  This sweet documentary film, Mr. Rogers & Me, is the tale of a young guy becoming a man – and how a chance encounter outside his summer vacation rental set him on a quest to search out people who could teach him the ways of peace, kindness and emotional depth that Mr. Rogers had awakened in him, and to some extent in all of us who ever watched him put on his cardigan and toss his  sneakers in the air.  This quest left Benjamin Wagner and his brother better men than when they began it, and left me sniffling into a very crumpled kleenex. Enjoy. (and yes – keep an eye out for that wedding.)

Extra! Extra! It’s me, the My Little Flower Shop blogger on TV!

First it was our wedding on TLC, and now my adventures on television continue.  I’m an extra!  Check out this star turn as a Sherlock Holmes super fan on the CBS comedy Two Broke Girls. (that’s me in the green hat and gloves at the table in the opening scene).

Nice green hat, huh? I had to give it back. Bummer.
