For Your Viewing Pleasure

Last night we rented 'The World's Fastest Indian" starring Sir Anthony Hopkins and I have to say it is one of the best movies I have seen in a long, long time.

It's a true story about a New Zealander named Burt Monro, who dreams of travelling to the Bonneville saltflats in Utah to test the speed of his classic Indian motorcycle. The story is beautifully told and Sir Anthony is just fantastic in it. It's one of those films that will make you laugh and cry. (I looked over at my husband at one point and he was all tear-eyed, though he denies it!)

Anyway, it's just out on DVD and I highly recommend it. I plan to buy it, I liked it that much!
