I watched Christoper Nolan’s movie Dunkirk today.
Please see this movie if you can.
I cried a lot during this movie, because it is about the real people on the ground who fought and died for their country.
But it’s also about the people who fought so hard to get home. And the brave folks who helped them.
***** stars out of 5 for Dunkirk.
Outlander is my latest cable television addiction.
Based on the Diana Gabaldon series of books, Outlander is the story of Claire Randall, a British woman who has been serving in World War II as a nurse. Claire and her husband Frank travel to Scotland to enjoy a second honeymoon after the war.
Claire’s husband Frank is a history professor, and he is doing research during their honeymoon. Claire goes off by herself to collect local plants for medicinal purposes. Claire is busy collecting her plants when she time travels into the past.
Outlander is a historical romance story, but it’s also fantasy. Claire falls in love with another man (Jamie) in the past, and their love scenes are steamy! Heads up: there is a lot of violence in this story, if this bothers you.
The series airs on STARZ, and it’s a wonderful story. The scenery is beautiful, the acting is well done, and I love the time traveling!
If you enjoy historical-romance-fantasy stories, Outlander is worth your time!
