Many people worry so much about managing their careers, but rarely spend half that much energy managing their LIVES. I want to make my life, not just my job, the best it can be. The rest will work itself out. Reese Witherspoon
As the upcoming weekend winds down, many of us will be sitting in front of our flat screens with our hair tied in a loosely fitted bun while eagerly anticipating which of our favorite actors gets to take home the golden prize. The Oscar show is always fun to watch whether you’re sitting alone enjoying a glass of wine in your pjs, or making a small party of your own with a couple of friends.
Here are a couple of the movies I saw which I believe to have a spiritual twist to them.
The Imitation Game and Benedict Cumberbatch are both nominated for best picture and best actor. Although this movie was no where near my radar, I’m glad a friend suggested we watch it. It’s a historical movie about five men who are asked to decode Hitler’s secret language used to deploy soldiers during World War II. Benedict Cumberbatch plays the role of a recluse mathematician who eventually breaks the secret while keeping a deep dark one of his own.
Angelina and I saw Wild with Oscar nominated Reese Witherspoon for best actress. Read about our review here in our Field Trip Edition.
Selma is nominated for best movie and although Angelina and I didn’t see it together there is one thing we both agree on – Weeee Loooooooove Oooooopraaaaaah!! The real life tale of Martin Luther King before he was assassinated was produced by the queen of talk herself. This definitely is a must see!
Two Days and One Night has Oscar nominated Marion Cotillard playing a barely hanging on to reality female in this little known movie from across the pond. Read about my review here in Hair In a Bun Friday Edition.
Hope all our sisters take time this weekend to see one of the best picture nominations before the big night.
Have you seen any of the above movies or one not mentioned above? If so, we’d love to hear your review!
