  1. I do hope The Kennedys is good--so much good material there!

    I hadn't heard of The Conspirator, but I do like Robin Wright (aka The Princess Bride!).

  2. Jane, I do hope that The Kennedys is done with style and not overly focused on the sexual exploits which I read might be the case according to one article.
    The Conspirator does sound interesting and the cast and director make this true story sound like it will be a winner!
