Happy Literary Friday, My Lovelies! This week I have nothing great to share because I'm still
reading savoring The House at Riverton. I probably would have finished it had it not been for the debacle of a movie entitled Macbeth 2015.
You see, we're reading Macbeth in British Literature. As Shakespeare should always be heard, I always begin by watching a version of the play we're studying, and I thought it would be a good idea to watch Macbeth 2015. What a Charlie Foxtrot. It was so bad! The lines were literally mumbled, and many of the best lines were edited out. Not a great idea….Mama was not happy when THE Scottish Play was reduced to weird effects and sword fights.
NOTE TO HOLLYWOOD: When you decide to produce another one of Shakespeare's works, remember that folks during the Elizabethan era used to say they were going to "hear" a play….not "see" a play.
Some weeks homeschooling is like a house of cards, especially when the teacher has been ill.
Wasting the time on this poor production set us back, and I had to "reassess" what to do next. Hence I didn't get to finish my book this week.
Just keeping it real here at Art @ Home!
In case you're curious, here's the trailer for Macbeth 2015:
