A note to all the good people on my friend list. I did not choose my top 30 friends. I have always refused to do that because I consider all my friends to be "top" friends. Flixster chooses the list for me. This quote feature unquote is not a good one. I would much rather see any friend who's online bubble to the top of the list.
More happily, although many are long gone from flixster now, and I miss them, my flixster `ohana lives in Australia, the Bahamas, Bangladesh, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, England, Finland, Hogwarts -- really : ), Ireland, New Zealand, Oz -- again, really -- you can't make stuff like this up, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, Romania, Scotland, South Africa, Spain, Thailand, the US, and Wales -- and I totally apologize if I've left your "home" out of my flixster `ohana list. Please let me know.

The best of the nominated films I've seen so far. If August: Osage County had been nominated as well, it would be a tie for these two. Hats off to Dench and Coogan for their transformative performances.
Update 07/29/08: I just watched this again for the umpteenth time. It never fails to move me. I'm jumping it up to five full stars and adding it to my Top 100. End update. And speaking of Hayley Mills, this is a classic. Rosalind Russell was a huge talent. And if you can believe it, Ida Lupino directed this. No, Hayley, you cannot become a nun. Please. But I'm convinced that it's what you must do. Where is June Harding? She was so good in this. Rosalind Russell is an all-time all-star.
