Have you guys seen the movie Carnage? Two married couples, played by Kate Winslet & Christoph Waltz and Jodie Foster & John C. Reilly, meet up to smooth things over after their sons get in a fight. The film was directed by Roman Polanski and based on the Tony Award winning play God of Carnage. I thought it was pitch-perfect black comedy and, as Chet pointed out, it is every non-kid-having adult’s worst nightmare.
Here’s the trailer, if you’d like to see…
You definitely get the sense that it’s the movie version of a stage play. However, the single setting and 4 lone players add to the genius, in my opinion. I couldn’t take my eyes off the screen the whole time. And I mean, that’s a pretty baller cast of four, don’t you think?
Rent it if ya dig!
P.S. Two movies to watch after a tough day at work.
If you’re looking for a cute date night idea, may I make a recommendation? How about the documentary, The Search for General Tso, enjoyed alongside a couple cartons of Chinese take-out! Who WAS General Tso, and why do we love eating his chicken so much? The film explores the origins and ubiquity of Chinese-American food through the story of the world’s most iconic sweet and spicy chicken dish. A dish you’ll want to shovel in your mouth as soon as that first frame rolls, I promise!
Now, you may be thinking, “Beth, isn’t this just the equivalent of #NetflixAndChill?” In a sense, yes. But this stay-in-for-the-night date has a THEME and themes require THOUGHT. Don’t let your adorable evenings with the one you love get reduced to a hashtag! Just think ahead, call up your local Chinese delivery restaurant, and place an order (or two) for some General Tso’s Chicken.
Instagramming a cute shot with your chopsticks is totally optional. #NetflixAndTso
Have fun, love birds!!!
