~Monday~  Several weeks ago now, I came across a list of movies that were billed as "the best movies you never saw," and after looking through the list, I asked my friend Bob if he would check to see if five of them were available through Netflix.

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.
