Serena with Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper (26 February 2015) USA

When George Pemberton (Bradley Cooper) married Serena Shaw (Jennifer Lawrence) life with such a beautiful woman became unbelievable. They met and married in 1929. They were madly in love; Serena could hardly breathe without George and he felt the same.

Serena became George’s partner in business as well as his wife. Their first meeting was accidental as Serena rode her horse through the beautiful woods in Boston, when George rode up behind her and stopped her to talk. Or, was it all part of a plan?

Strong in their beliefs of success they proceeded with producing a Timber Empire in the beginning of the Great Depression in 1930. Their honeymoon attitude still shined for George and Serena. They traveled to North Carolina to the timber camp; it was her first time there to see all the men who worked hard for a few dollars. However, a few dollars was not what she would settle for in her lifetime. 

Being in the North Carolina Mountain wilderness was new to Serena, but then no one seem to know the real person of strength, determination, and jealousy who would do anything to get what she wanted.

George lived in the timber camp before, long enough to become involved with another woman Rachel Harmon (Ana Ularu), before he had met and married Serena. Their illicit relationship endured because Rachael had his illegitimate son.

Serena showed George her true side of being a partner, she worked more efficient and produced more than any man they employed to manage the crew; some husbands might frown on this; but not George.

When Serena could not produce a child for George, she became obsessed because nothing she ever wanted before became beyond her grasp.

Now, the real sick Serena started to come out; mean, destructive and eliminating anyone who stood in her way.  

And, would George be able to live with Serena now? Or would she decide to rid herself of George. Or, is it true that some loves can never let you go?


I cannot wait to see this movie as I know it will be great beyond my anticipation; by showing us the ones who lived through the Great Depression and what some did to survive.

Christy---Kellie Martin and Tyne Daly

                                                          First Movie

     To anyone, who has been stuck in your home, by the snow, rain, storms, or just not feeling up to par. Maybe, you have been watching movies or reading, and I think it is the best thing to do to avoid---cabin fever. I thought I would share with you some of my favorite movies. Which one can now find on DVD, and watch them over and over again, as I do.This one was made about sixteen years ago, and is still a favorite of many of my friends.Christy Complete Series.jpg
     Is there is anyone out there that has not seen "Christy" starring Kellie Martin and Tyne Daly? Then you have missed a great movie with the best actors. This movie is based on a novel by Catherine Marshall. ( It is cold and raining outside, and I am going to watch Christy, again--I have lost count of how many times I have watched the complete series.)
     If anyone wants a great movie which one can watch anytime to relax your mind, after a hard day at work, this is one to buy, you won't be sorry.
     Christy  was filmed in 1994-1995. It is in color and is  907 minutes long. Which is 15 hours of the best movie ever made on location in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, in my opinion.
     The movie begins in 1912, almost 100 years ago, when times were really hard for these mountain people. They barely had enough food to eat in the winter months, but their pride would not let them complain.
     I will never forget Cutter's Gap, because I was so engrossed in the movie, that I felt all the hurt, pain and the love these people shared. It felt like home to me, and I couldn't wait for the next night,(after work) to watch more---working in the daytime interferes with----my movie watching.
     This is a story of a young girl named Christy Huddleston, who left her loving parents, and the home she grew up in North Carolina to come to Cutter's Gap. She was there to teach children who were too poor to wear shoes, and lived in one of the poorest area of Tennessee.
     Christy was only a few years older than some of the students she came to Cutter's Gap to teach. This movie is so amazing. As I watched it, I struggled with Christy, as she learned the ways of the mountain people and their great Scottish pride
     She was constantly trying to make their lives better---but hitting the brick wall of pride. However, that did not stop her, and she learned how to help the proud Appalachian people keep their pride.
     Her sweet and helpful ways got her into trouble some of the time, but her heart was always in the right place. And she found love in Cutter's Gap. I won't tell if she married the tall handsome preacher; or the good looking doctor who was born in Cutter's Gap, and wore his proud Scottish pride, like a second skin.
     Christy became best friends with one of Cutter'sGap hardworking mothers. This was a very special relationship for them both, from the beginning to the end of the movie; I was the invisible member of Cutter's Gap.
