I go through phases of adoration of bright red lipstick.
I'm currently in a bright red lips phase, so all outfits are topped up with a swipe of L'oreal 'Garnet Creme' (shade 460 if we're going to be technical about it).
I actually put MAC's bright red matte lipstick (I forget the shade name) on my imaginary shopping list on Friday but walked straight past Myers without a second thought. Ah well, it'll just have to be acquired on Tuesday.
On Friday, Stuart invited me over for dinner (delicious cream cheese stuffed mushrooms topped with cherry tomatoes and a steak and sweet potato main course....drooool) followed by a movie at the cinema next to his place.
We watched Samson and Delilah, Warwick Thornton's first feature film. The film is exquisite, hauntingly so.....there's hardly any dialogue and the movie bears no resemblence to the biblical story yet leaves a lasting impression. Its about two teenagers in a remote Indigenous community, and about love in the face of adversity. The movie is understatedly fantastic. There isn't a theme of sentimentality or even a forced story line, instead the actors are mind-blowingly good. Samson is a petrol-sniffing good-for-nothing, whilst Delilah is surprisingly self-contained and looks after her grandmother in the remote community. When her grandmother dies, they both head off to Alice Springs where they live on the fringe of the community (aka under a bridge with a homeless guy), unable to get life together.
I was amazed at the emotions delivered by the young actors, and more so how the film is so well-made...its a tough film about love, and as Margaret and David at the Movies say, "It's a knockout". It's so sad but ends on such a high note, its a completely unexpected relative happy ending.
I urge the Aussies out there to watch this beauty of a film, its one of those that grabs at your heart, doesn't preach and will make you laugh, be appalled and aghast all in one sitting. Just gorgeous, in a wonderfully understated way.
and the boys.....
Hope everyone's having a great weekend; we have an extended one here in Australia in celebration of the State's first European settlers to the Swan River Colony (Foundation Day).
