It has been a while since I last blogged. Well, work and life have kept me busy. I’ve been more into TV shows than sitting at length and kicking back with a movie. This past week, I’ve been sick due to pneumonia – 5 days of no work, led to lying down in bed, watching movies and getting access back to my blog.
The movie I picked, or rather was on ‘My List’ for a long time, was Flawless starring Demi Moore and Michael Cane. The movie is set in the 60s and is about a 30-something woman, Laura (Demi Moore) who has been dedicated to work and has had no time to live her life. Her frustration builds up, when she is passed up for promotion multiple times at the firm. The firm she works at is one of the largest distributors of diamonds called London Diamond Corporation.
Her life changes when she is faced with a proposition from an almost about to retire janitor, Hobbs (Michael Cane). Will she throw away everything she has worked for and try to do something this daring?
The movie is good and runs about 2 hours long with many predictable moments, so don’t look for overly twisted turns in the plot. It leaves me with the thought that, nothing much has changed since the 60s. While there are many more women managers, it is still hard to be a woman to be successful and have a life of her own. Something that is now changing, and I hope that 40 days down the line, when I read this post (or get back to my thought), things would have drastically improved.
My rating: 3/5
Life is for living.
