He went ahead and ordered two of them, making sure they would be available the week while I was watching Frances and Vincent while he was at a nursing conference in Boston.
I watched the first of them tonight: Prime, starring Meryl Streep, Uma Thurman, and Bryan Greenberg.
Synopsis: A career driven professional from Manhattan is wooed by a young painter, who also happens to be the son of her psychoanalyst.
My thoughts and observations about the movie:
- Meryl Streep is one of those actors—not unlike Maggie Smith and Judy Dench—whom I enjoy in just about everything I see her in. This film was no exception.
- Bryan Greenberg was just delicious to look at in this. I'm not aware of having ever seen him before.
- I was absolutely cackling in the scene where Uma Thurman's character is talking to Meryl Streep's character during a therapy session, a portion of which is shown at 1:15 into the trailer (above). Hysterical.
- I would definitely recommend this as a Netflix choice for a movie night. With that said, as with all things based on personal opinion, YMMV.
