Sunday Movie

Went to the movies late this afternoon and saw Cadillac Records, which just opened this week. I know that there are glaring omissions in the movie vs. actual history of Chess Records, but the music is great, the story compelling, Adrian Brody as fascinating as ever, and Beyonce Knowles A.MAZ.ING as Etta James. Wow, that young woman can sing and, truly, she can act. I have always enjoyed Muddy Waters, too, so to hear the music and view a story of the times was entertaining.
Coupled with a good late lunch/early dinner of Mexican food this was a most enjoyable outing.
