Picky Chick Weekend Flicks

If you are one of the few people who aren't traveling this fine Labor Day weekend (myself included) and want to stay in and catch a good flick, here are some Picky-Chick suggestions...

- 2005 - Steve Martin, Claire Danes and Jason Schwartzman. This on-the-down-low romance is a great quiet night film for you and your beau. Girls will love the seriously intense love story between Martin (a wealthy businessman) & Danes (a Saks salesgirl), while Schwartzman (the films comic relief) will entertain the guys.

Dr. Zhivago - 1965 - Omar Sharif & Julie Christie. This beautifully shot epic romance takes place around the Bolshevik Revolution. Julie Chrisite's stunning appearance has you at scene one. It's a little long, so make enough popcorn. Oh, and it happened to win 5 Academy Awards and earned a nomination for Best Picture.

Marathon Man - 1976 - Dustin Hoffman & Laurence Olivier. While this one may be a little more catered to the boys, it's emotional enough to keep us Picky-Chicks interested. A young Dustin Hoffman was nominated for his performance as a college student caught in the middle of an international conspiracy, while an unrecognizable Laurence Olivier won the Academy Award and Golden Globe for his portrayal of an exiled Nazi war criminal. Great film.
