Oscar Worthy Film - Mud
Well, I think I saw the first truly Oscar worthy film today - "Mud" with Matthew McConaughey. It is one of those film that on the surface is pretty straight-forward. A pair of boys find Mud on an island in the middle of the river, hiding out, and they decide to help him. Wrapped within all that though is a great, subtle, mesmerizing film that is entirely true to it's own heart. I would highly recommend it.
Wrapped around that was a pleasant day. No particular moment stood out as transcendent, no particular event besides the movie was a true gem, but the day itself was simple and precious. I am home now, settled in for the evening, feet propped up, glass of ice water next to me, waiting for "Game of Thrones" to begin. A simple and beautiful night.
