Mrs Bale watches a movie on DVD


Two fellows in the movie Mid-August Lunch are sitting, drinking wine, and watching the world go by.


“Some weather.”
“You said it. Plenty hot.”
“It’s August. It’s hot.”
“It sure is."

    1. I feel the same way! I have seen it twice and just recently bought the dvd for myself. I plan to watch it each mid-August!

    3. Just gone back to that post, Nan, and watched the little clip ... which reminded me of how much I love the film, so going to get it out of the cupboard and watch it - again!!
      I have a few more favourites, one of them is an American film, "Breaking Away" 1979, which cheers me up every time I see it!

  2. I missed your earlier review, but this sounds exactly like MY kind of movie. There are so few of this sort made. Thank you so much for posting this!

  4. I had to re-read your former review (and my comment to it) - still haven't watched this one.

  5. I love this film - when we were having a CD clear out my husband said 'what do you want to keep this for'. I couldn't exactly explain why - but I put it back in the rack anyway - I have watched it many times and it always brings pleasure in the simplicity of the story.

  7. Nan, this sounds so delightful that I've moved it to the top of my Netflix list. I'm looking forward to it!

  8. By golly they sure are right! Even Mrs Bales would agree. Even if she lived in Oregon. And I put the movie on my list.
