March was a mixed bag for movies.  Mind you, I rarely get to the new releases so you’ll see some dated films here.  What I’d love to hear is what’s showing in the French countryside, Ms. N.?

Here’s a recap of the movies I squeezed in around all the writing, reading, chopping, prepping and cooking:

The Man Who Wasn’t There – with my husband

The Message (starring Anthony Quinn) – with my husband
