Every Sunday morning I watch the CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood. I started watching it when Terry and I were first married and would go visit his parents. They lived about 3 1/2 hours north of us so it was usually a long weekend, we'd spend with them. Sunday morning at their house was homemade cinnamon rolls, coffee and that program with Charles Kuralt.
This last Sunday morning had a feature on Glenn Close. I am a huge fan of hers. I love Damages that originated of FX and then moved to Direct-TV. (Why do they do that.?) Of course, she scared the &%&#& out of married men that were having affairs in the 80's with Fatal Attraction. (Just between you and I, I coveted her hair in that movie. That was 1983 and big hair was just coming in.)
But the movie I always associate with her is 1983's The Big Chill, about 7 University of Michigan friends, gathering for a weekend at a southern antebellum home, for the funeral of one of their group that had committed suicide. (Do you remember the "friend" never had face time. Only his hair was shown being combed and that it was Kevin Costner?)
What's not to love for us boomers. We get to watch other boomers dance and reminisce about their college days, all to the soundtrack of Motown music. Well, there was that other issue that developed..... If you're a boomer and have not seen this movie, do. I think you'll enjoy it.
If you're not a boomer, I think you would like it too, if only for the music. It's a classic.
Enjoy, I know I do.
