midnight in paris

 Tonight I saw Midnight in Paris, Woody Allen's new film, at the Coolidge Corner Theater.
The Coolidge is an amazing theater that's been open since 1933. Midnight was played in the "movie house," which is the largest screening room in the building with beautiful art deco features.
It seemed like the perfect place to see this movie.
 I actually didn't know much about the movie before seeing it. While in Paris, I saw an American movie with French subtitles and one of the previews was for this film. I just remember seeing Marion Cotillard in a room of taxidermy animals and falling in love immediately, naturally. Paris also had posters for this movie absolutely everywhere; they were rightfully proud!
 I won't say much about the movie, except that it was everything that I, personally, could ever dream a movie to be, and that you should see it. :)
I've been SO busy lately, but I promise that so many more Europe photos are coming, plus drawings, plus new paintings!!
