Opal Dream

The other night our Netflix selection was Opal Dream, which we knew absolutely nothing about and came to us through the "recommendations" system at Netflix.  Golly, was it good.  Very unusual.  Interesting setting.  Tremendous acting (and I always like it very much when I don't "know" the actors already).  Fascinating story.  Amazing family dynamics.  Gentle in places.  Harsh in others.  The underlying message:  You don't have to be able to see something for it to be real.

Think about it.

It sounds interesting so I added it to my queue. Thanks for the recommendation.

I've never heard of it either. I'll have to check with my mother, she manages to see everything that no one else knows anything about! Thanks for the recommend.

If I were here and available to comment on this I'm sure I'd like to say this looks interesting and thanks for the tip! But I'm still in hiding...

Nancy,
We like movies that are different and not so mainstream, also. Check out "Departures" a Japanese film that came out recently on DVD. Very different but very good.
