Movie Bliss: A Hopeless Romantic Seeks Movies to Love
One of my favourite parts of the holiday season is curling up in front of the telly in a catatonic stupor after consuming way too much food. Whether with friends, family or that significant other, nothing really says Christmas like the movies.
And Heidi Rice - author of gems such as Maid of Dishonour and BTW I Love You - is a film critic by day and so turns her knowing eye to films we love to love. Ranging from the epic Gone With the Wind (Scarlett being flawed perfection), to the quirky Attack the Block (essentially Aliens on a Council Estate - yes, that is as awesome as it sounds), Movie Bliss is split into six sections:
Oldies That Are Awesome
Cartoon Capers, but Not Just for Kids
Rom-Coms R Us
Joys for the Boys (and the Girls, Too)
Offbeat but Right Up My Street
Big is Beautiful, Bold is Even Better
The book itself reads like every conversation I've ever had with my friends about films, from plot points to eye candy, and isn't dry at all. Its charm lies in its ability to bring to life the films it describes, whilst simultaneously entertaining and incredibly witty.
And I have every intention of watching all the films she writes about!
Published under the new Harlequin Pop! digital imprint, it's fantastic to see M&B branching out into "sophisticated analysis" of popular culture.
