Monday Muse - Indie Films


In addition to informative and oft-times inspirational documentaries, Netflix has afforded me the opportunity to watch many Indie Films that don't play at the local theater, nor appear in my local video store. One movie that I watched recently really spoke to many of my interests... in stories, in cultures, in connection and friendship. That movie was Arranged. The trailer below will introduce you to the two young women whose stories intertwine in this gentle, quiet film. I just loved it!

I thought this post amazing because as of late I've started watching some netflix indie movies late at night on the computer. They have a bunch you can watch like that. SO of course I had to see if this was one of them and it was and OH my, I loved it too. Those two characters have stayed with me for days now.
Last night I watched a movie called The Visitor. It was good too. Maybe you've seen it but if not I think you'll like it.

Robbin,

That is how I watched this one too, "instantly" online. It is a great feature of Netflix! I will have to check out The Visitor. I think it may have popped up as one that Netflix has calculated I would like based on other films I have watched and rated highly. Thank you for the recommendation and the visit.

The characters in Arranged are wonderful, aren't they?

Aisling!!!

I happened to see this post of yours and, while I don't have Netflix, we do have a pretty good library system. I was tickled to see I could get the movie, "Arranged" and reserved it that day.

I just now finished watching it and *loved* it!! Thank you so much for recommending it!

Pairie Star, I'm glad you were able to find it, and that you loved it. These two women were such wonderful characters to me.
