A Charming Discovery

The Oscars are great for discovering cool films and music that might have slipped under your radar during the year. Rob and I were introduced to Once when “Falling Slowly” was nominated for best song and to A Mighty Wind when “A Kiss at the End of the Rainbow” was nominated.

This year, we were fascinated by the glimpses we had of “The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore “- the winner for Best Animated Short. We purchased the movie and watched it today.

It was utterly charming. Although there was no dialogue, the little book characters had so much personality! And I loved the little bibliophile touches (his little book friend communicated in a sort of flip-book illustrations, much of the household furniture had a “booky” look to them – the grand piano had a book cover and pages as a lid and it was held up by a fountain pen, when Mr. Morris tries to operate on a hurt book, the patient is hooked up to a little ventilator book – just cute little touches that it was fun to notice). 


If you haven’t seen this film, I definitely recommend it.


About Ciarrai

Hi. My name is Kerry but here online I tend to go by the Gaelic version of my name, Ciarrai. I am a woman in my mid-30's who lives on Long Island, NY, with my husband, Rob, several guitars, a Nikon D40, more yarn, beads and books than I care to admit to and a cat who has a million nicknames and quite a few theme songs. I have a B.A. in Psychology and have recently returned to college to pursue a teaching degree so that I can eventually get a job as a High School English teacher. In addition to my major obsessions (Reading, Beading, Knitting, Music and Photography), I also enjoy playing Board Games, going to Renaissance Faires, Museums and Broadway Musicals.
