Click here to see the trailer for Stephen Spielberg's Ready Player One, currently in theaters. Look for the DeLorean. (Hint-it's moving quickly and is black and you're more likely to find it if you watch one of the explanatory videos that elaborates on the trailer.) If you want to, stay on the YouTube page and see lots more about Ready Player One. After all, it's a movie about the native online generation.

Great and uplifting film!

A Moveable Feast (4 of 5 stars for me)

I had not read Hemingway since H.S. and had never read Moveable Feast. I read in Claudia's post that later wives edited this book? Hmmm. To me it was clear in this book that Hadley was the love of his life so I'd be skeptical that a later wife edited it. Having said that, Hadley only had a few quoted lines in the entire book. However Hemingway made several comments like "we had no idea at the time" how it was the greatest time of our lives.... Also a tremendous insight into the relationship Hemingway had with "Scott" Fitzgerald. And how his relationship with Getrude Stein developed and ended (although I've already forgotten the latter). I especially loved Hemingway's writing style and always felt like I was right there with him/them. I am so glad I read A Moveable Feast.

P.S. I decided to inundate myself in Hemingway and also watched the video of the 2011 HBO movie Hemingway & Gellhorn (his 3rd wife). If you haven't had enough of Hemingway yet, I recommend it. Clive Owen, Nicole Kidman.

Thanks, Pam, for your comment. It's always interesting when there is some disagreement of opinions among our group. Your movie idea looks interesting, too!
