OK, it’s been awhile because I’ve been so busy with fun things! Three new classes–and ONLY three–enabling me to give the students really good attention AND to learn the new online learning format our school has adopted. So far I like it a lot.
The Netflix description: “Set in post-World War II England, this bittersweet coming-of-age tale follows 16-year-old Stella (Georgina Cates), a star-struck lass who joins a low-rent theatre troupe led by cruel monocled director Meredith Potter (Hugh Grant). Immediately smitten with Potter, the impressionable Stella instead ends up in the bed of the company’s star, erstwhile matinee idol P.L. O’Hara (Alan Rickman) — a hopeless bounder — when Potter rejects her.”
Netflix–“Cast out of the house by her grief-stricken father after she accidentally causes the death of her mother, Dina (Maria Bonnevie) is left to raise herself, until a tutor and a wealthy man named Jacob (Gérard Depardieu) intervene. In time, Dina marries Jacob and puts her shrewd instincts to work for his business — which, upon his suspicious death, Dina inherits over the objections of his two sons. Ole Bornedal directs this epic drama set in Norway.”
