So, as much as I love movies, I am not so quick to recommend them—- as tastes vary considerably. However, that being said, I liked the message in PROM. True, it’s not great cinema, but it’s entertaining! Big stars: Meryl Streep, James Corden, Nicole Kidman, etc. My sister Rissi told me about it, so I was ready for a movie. Well, it’s part Broadway musical! ( right up my alley!) It’s about a high school girl who wants to go to PROM with her girlfriend. It’s not about tolerance…it’s about ACCEPTANCE.
In these days of division and separation, I found it particularly inspiring and affirming. We can all take cues from this movie about what motivates us, trust, sacrifice, being truly neighborly, and learning how to live together peacefully. Maybe check it out…we watched it on Netflix.
Ciao for now! Patty ✌️?❤️?
