Three Dark Films

My wife and I watched disturbing films three Friday nights in a row. All three illustrate the human condition. All three (I must say) were at my suggestion.

The Talented Mr. Ripley -- features a man whose talents included lying, impersonation, and forgery.

Doubt -- features a Roman Catholic nun who brings a dubious accusation against a priest.

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas -- features the son of a Nazi commandant who befriends a Jewish boy (of the same age) in a internment camp.

We're due for a light hearted comedy. Any suggestions?


  1. Marley and Me. It IS kind of sad, but heart-warming too.
    27 Dresses... but kind of a chick flick
    Elaine recommends Eddie w/ Whoopie Goldberg

  2. Thanks for your suggestions, Cynthia.

    A few of my favorite films (e.g. "You've Got Mail") are chick flicks.
