I interrupt my Panamanian log to bring you a look at a small movie that I thought was so amazing, that hit so close to home – that I had to share it with you! You can go here to see the description and trailer for this movie, called SMART PEOPLE – go, and come back, I’ll wait ;)
…ok, I haven’t seen this movie, but I love how it skillfully lays out the theme of “societally defined” smart people actually being not-so-smart. Where this really hits home is my (somewhat) fractured relationship with my P.H.D. Professor father and his profound knowledge of stuff other than his family. I look forward to seeing Dennis Quaid, one of the coolest actors *before* my generation. Throw in lots of oddball characters and this could be this year’s Juno… ok, maybe I’m being a bit premature.
