Les Miserables and Once
Christopher surprised me by taking me to see Once for my birthday yesterday! Standing room tickets are only $27.00 and I highly recommend them. The show is like an awesome Irish concert + drama and the story is so real and raw and good. The characters are genuine; the ending counter-cultural or at least counter-Hollywood.
As for Les Miserables, I cried 5x. The film is beautiful and deep and naked, undoubtedly one of the greatest stories ever written. It speaks of injustices that are still prevalent today and teaches a lot about humility, love and grace. I want to read the book!
