Thumbs up, with a warning

| | Comments (1)

Winner of the Academy Award for Best Foreign Picture, and one of Christianity Today's "Most Redeeming Movies of 2006" as well as their "Critics' Choice Movies for 2006", this comes with a recommendation from me as well.

But it comes with a warning: You must be of strong stomach to watch this one. Violent, sad, eye-opening. God searches for even the most prodigal of his sons, and Tsotsi is prodigal indeed. He's a thug in South Africa--and the first 30 minutes of the movie make you believe that he is irredeemable. But he steals a car (after shooting the woman driver) only to find that he is not alone. There is a baby in the back seat.

HI MamaT

A website right up your alley from my local library blog

For ravenous readers

Overbooked is the perfect site for book lovers looking for new books to read. Packed with book lists galore, readers can search for read-a-like suggestions, or browse lists by theme, literary style, or place. And take some time to check out the "hot lists" for new and notable book suggestions (including forthcoming titles).
