Music Monday ~ This Week's Highway Earworm

Watching a movie deposited this earworm into the shell-like of your friendly neighbourhood blogger. Movie in question: Our Souls at Night, available via Netflix currently. The movie stars Robert Redford and Jane Fonda both in their (ahem) twilight years, and both, amazingly enough, even older than me! The Roger Ebert website has a decent review HERE.

The film is set in Colorado, it appears that the characters actually live on the flatter eastern side of the state, but in part of the story they take a camping trip to the wonderfully scenic Rocky Mountains area further west. As they drive along scenic highways in a truck this number is played - I hadn't heard it for years, used to love it. Now it's in my head - and I don't mind one little bit.
Willie and Kris are still with us, sadly Waylon and Johnny are not - and yet, as the song reminds us, they really are!

Did not like this movie one bit. I have problems with the perma-frozen face of JF, I find her plastic expressionless face disconcerting and unemotive. Loved her younger Klute, Barefoot, etc. and thought her a brilliant actress then. Shame really.

I did love the book the movie was based on tho and found it far superior to what they scripted here.

Wisewebwoman ~ I didn't hate the film, but it was a tad depressing, and the ending was not satisfying at all. Husband likes Robert Redford, he's ok but was never a fave of mine. We watched him again tonight in "The Discovery" - another rather depressing one, but it does have a good female lead in Rooney Mara.
