38/52 BIG STONE GAP
I missed posting a blog last week but still saw a film. I was sick and stressed and wanted the cinematic equivalent of comfort food.
BIG STONE GAP was adapted and directed by acclaimed novelist Adriana Trigiani from her own book. She shot the film in her hometown in Virgina and, as you can see from the poster, the film boasts a wonderful cast including Ashley Judd, Patrick Wilson and Whoopi Goldberg.
It’s a small town story with colorful small town characters and it was exactly what the doctor ordered–funny, heartfelt, down-to-earth and completely entertaining. I loved it. This film is available to stream on Netflix.
