The Lost City – Best Movie I’ve Seen in a Long Time

Lost city This 2005 film by Andy Garcia (both director and leading actor) recounts the effect of the 1959 Cuban Revolution on one family. The movie is a wonderful way to clarify one's often cloudy personal history of that event.  (Remember Castro's ticker-tape parade in New York City?)  It is engaging, moving, beautifully filmed, and has a soundtrack to die for.  Need I say more?

Some critics said it was too long.  I watched it with a friend who is notorious for wandering away 5 minutes into any movie we watch at home.  She never moved an inch.

Available on Netflix.  (And probably lots of other places as well.)

Watch it!

About Mary Jane Ballou

Mary Jane Ballou’s life in sacred music began in a children’s choir at the age of three. Instrumental music waited until her piano lessons started in primary school. And her music life remains a joyous pairing of sacred vocal music and the instrumental repertoire of Spain, Ireland, and Scotland.
