Swimsuit, by James Patterson, is a well written mystery, and shows that we tend to go along with people who are dressed well, without asking questions. It will be a very hard book to put down with many plots and twists.

Gran Torino

Gran Torino is a well done feature, filmed here in Metro Detroit, and shows what a great actor and director Clint Eastwood is. It involves an older man that realizes relationship ties with his neighbors of other cultures, who realizes that they are no different from his own self.

The Changeling

The Changeling starring Angelina Jolie and directed by Clint Eastwood is a tragic true story of the 1920's of a mom who never gives up hope of finding her kidnapped son.  I like history, and if you do, too, you will learn much from this sad tale that affected many southern California families.  It is a tear jerker and not for kids, but Angelina Jolie is a marvelous actress, and this is her at her best.  You will not be able to get up from your seat once this movies begins.
