Weekly Goals 31-7-17

This isn't strictly a weekly goals post because I'm not actually setting myself any real goals this week.  I know I'm not going to get any writing done, so aiming to do some is fruitless.

Instead, I'm just going to enjoy the film festival while it's on.

I've seen two more films, both of which I liked for different reasons.

Patti Cake$ is a film about a poor Jersey girl who dreams of being a rapper.  It's not a wholly original premise, but there are some lovely, original touches.  The lead, Patti, is a large girl and looks like the most unlikely rapper.  The rest of her posse are also an unusual group of characters.  Her home life is pretty dire, and it's easy to understand why she might be happy to escape into her dreams.

Menashe is set in the Hassidic Jewish community and tells the story of a widower trying to look after his son, something he is not allowed to do within his religion's traditions.  It was fascinating to get to see this community because it's something we don't get access to usually.  It was also a little sad because despite wanting desperately to parent his son, Menashe was almost as much of a kid as the little boy.

And that's it for now.  I'll be back with a couple more little reviews later in the week.

Do let me know what you're plans and goals are this week, okay?


  1. Those sound interesting. I hope I can see them sometime.

  2. Going to a film festival sounds fun. Both of these sound interesting.
