Unexpected Delights

Sometimes you stumble over a film that is so unexpectedly delicious that you just want to slow it down so you can enjoy it just a little bit longer. Here are some of my favorite little gems:

Marilyn Hotchkiss Ballroom Dancing and Charm School
In a line: Frankie honors a dying stranger's request to keep a date made 40 years ago at the Ballroom Dance Class and finds himself finally finds solace from his wife's death
You'll Like It Because: It's touching and sweet with just the right amount of "swing".

An Ideal Husband
In a line: Based on the play by Oscar Wilde about one reputable couple being blackmailed about past mistakes.
You'll like it because: The wordplay is outstanding, comic timing is perfection, and Minnie Driver and Rupert Everett have the most amazing chemistry.

Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day
In a line: Miss Pettigrew, the dowdy down on her luck nanny, hooks up with Delyesia Lafosse, an American film star, for a day of adventure, learning, and whirlwind romance.
You'll like it because: The costumes and set of the 1930s are impeccably gorgeous and Amy Adams and Frances McDormand enchantingly play off each other.
