Movies

7. Impromptu (April 11) -- 3.5 stars

This is a movie about how George Sands was an incredibly charming utter weirdo and how Frederic Chopin realizes that he really needs more charming weirdo crossdressing writers in his life. It's a lot of fun. I have no idea if they were like this in truth but I hope so. 3.5 stars

8. Mozart's Sister (April 13) -- 2.5 stars

Welp, that got really depressing towards the end. This is a re-imagining of the early years of Maria Anna 'Nannerl' Mozart, Wolfgang Mozart's sister. As a teenager she travelled with her family performing musically with her brother and if the movie is to be trusted gradually saw her opportunities to work with music narrowed and obliterated due to her gender. Also Louis XVI is kind of a dick to her. 2.5 stars

Have you heard of Sounds and Sweet Airs? I feel like that's a non-fiction you might be interested in, based on your movie choices. :)
