So we had a nice crowd for our “Elizabeth Blue” preview…
And I had to leave before the end of the film…my kiddo had a BIO 1-pager and a geometry test the next day…but my colleagues filled me in on Friday morning…and I have to say, Chickens, I really did not see the ending coming!
I’m whatever the opposite of sentimental is…so the depiction of the title character’s romantic relationship was way over the top…for me, you know, as a hard-hearted pragmatist…so the revelation at the end made it a better film in my, admittedly warped, opinion.
And I’ll admit, the movie really did have me thinking about reality and perception…in a super-deep kind of way. I wonder if we don’t all have ‘Lizzy Blue’ days…I know I do…days where it feels like your reality doesn’t seem to intersect with anyone else’s.
But, Chickens, I think on this we can agree: If you were going to have an imaginary animal appear to comfort you…I mean, who in the world would want a raccoon?!? Raccoons are handsy little rat-bandits! Why not a koala bear? A long-eared bunny? A pink mini-pig? Or even a fluffy feathered …Chicken?
In any case, we were pleased to have partnered with a few of the agencies in the local community tirelessly engaged in promoting mental health and wellness…because it is the foundation for a life well lived.
