Movie Monday- A Room with a View
Broodingly romantic young men, stolen glances, achingly beautiful scenery, and an awkwardly snobby Daniel Day Lewis all gave this movie a place on my all-time favorite movies list. Add a dose of improbable romance, and it’s just earned a place in my top five. Sigh. Why did I wait so long to watch this gem of a movie?
Mind you, all this raving is coming from a girl who was weaned on Anne of Green Gables and Sarah Plain and Tall. I happen to enjoy a good period piece, particularly from the early 20th Century. Bustles, parasols, and men who tip their hats all set my heart a flutter.
A Room with a View is not only terribly romantic and beautiful, but I caught myself laughing out loud on several occasions. Humorous indeed. Oh, just go watch it yourself. Please. And if you’re smart enough to have seen it before, well, for goodness sake, go watch it again! ;)
….Oh, and I would like to briefly add that the men’s fashion in this movie is just fantastic. I wish Phil dressed like this. Like, every day. That would be splendid. Okay, now go watch it. I’m off to convince my mother to watch it with me again. Romantic movies are better enjoyed in the company of other hopeless romantic souls, you see.
