Understandings --- Day 5/100

Walk: Sundance Kabuki (Captain America: Civil War)
Distance: 3 miles and home yoga



If you want to feel as unintelligent as Ciwt, please take yourself to Captain America: Civil War.  She didn't understand anything, including, until the last 15 minutes when he was identified, that the main character she'd been watching for over 2 hours was the 'man' himself: Captain America.

The good news is she understood - and Liked! - Love & Friendship better than she anticipated.  She's not that big a Jane Austen fan, but maybe the director isn't either.  Somehow he has added to Austen's usual (to Ciwt) rather stifling mix of British social exposition a modern sauciness, raciness and humor that makes his movie a delight.

Tomorrow is Carmen, Bizet's opera.  He wrote it in 1875 and the Opera House will have supertitles, so Ciwt is expecting to understand and enjoy it.
