March’s Movies and $ for charity

Not one trip to the theater in March, but Netflix didn’t let me down during my insomnia week.  I want to add this from the movie Suite Francaise because I found it so interesting…

The film’s postscript reads as follows: Suite Francaise was written in secret as the Nazis occupied France. It was never completed. In 1942 its author Irene Nemirovsky was arrested for being Jewish and died in Auschwitz. Her handwritten manuscript lay unread in a suitcase for nearly sixty years until it was discovered by her daughter. Suite Francaise was finally published in 2004 and became a worldwide bestseller. The daughter is quoted to say: “It is an extraordinary feeling to have brought my mother back to life. It shows the Nazis did not truly succeed in killing her. It is not vengeance, but it is a victory.” Denise Epstein-Dauple

    I haven’t seen any of these! I read a review for Triple Frontier and decided against wasting my time. I may see Burnt since I do love me some Bradley Cooper.
