Washington? Washington, boy, that must have been a big adjustment.
It wasn't that bad. Both places have a lot in common: Over-privileged people, crazed by their fear of losing their privileges. Alcoholism. Addiction. Betrayal. The near total degradation of what once were grand motives. The same spiritual blood-letting. I kind of do miss the seasons, though.

We enjoyed this movie. It was nicely paced, the plight of the single barely-employed father suddenly faced with the daughter he had not seen for 2 years and must now care for was credible, and the several sub-plots were well done, in places quite witty. The acting was first-rate. We were grateful to be spared car chases, shootings, fires, mutilations, and 130 dB explosions. All in all, a very pleasant evening's entertainment.
