It is so fun to discover a bit of a hidden gem. I will definitely see if this is available on our various movie subscription sites. We have greatly diminished our movie watching now that I am so busy with school, but I will try to get it in teh queue.
Good, though I have a sneaking suspicion you haven’t yet seen Brooklyn…
It’s on Netflix – I added it to my list! Of course, there’s stuff that’s been on my list for like five years, so who knows when I’ll get to it.
