Friday night, I was up waaaay past my bedtime, watching a movie at TIFF. My childless self would have been so impressed but as a working mama of a almost 3 year old, the running commentary in my head went something like this as we waited in line to see the show: “when is this thing going to start?” “oh my there are a lot of young fancy people here” and last but not least: “all i want to do is go home and put on my sweat pants“. That was until realized we were going to Gala screening. Yes, a gala screening – like gala / “world premiere” of the movie. Earlier in the week, Aaron got free tickets to a film, and without actually knowing all the details, I agreed to go. Whoops!
Little did I know that I would be seeing the director and actors introduce the film. Not only did I see John Travolta, Christopher Plummer and Tye Sheridan – in the blink of an eye, they were sitting 100 feet away from us. Although I was exhausted, the commentary in my head changed to: “omg – this is so exciting! I can’t wait to tell my mom!” and “oh my John Travolta has had a lot of “work” done on his face” and “I really want put on my sweatpants”.
The film we saw was called The Forger. It is a lovely and enjoyable movie that left me thoroughly entertained and happy that we called a babysitter. Although, at times, it was predictable but the acting from the cast, particularly Christopher Plummer and Tye Sheridan was quite good. Totally worth staying up late and wearing “real pants” for! And in my books, that is a successful date night 🙂
