Movies: Sideways • Being Julia

Sideways - Two friends, one divorced, another about to get married. One reeling from a divorce that seemed to have hapened only yesterday, another wanting to get laid before committing himself. Both afraid to embark on a new journey, one of leaving the past behind, the other of making a mistake that will impact his future. More bittersweet than terribly funny, in the tradition of "About Schmidt".  Very interesting movie even if you can't tell a Pinot from a Merlot. Go figure. 

Being Julia - Annette Benning is again in the running for an Oscar and deservedly so. Wicked performance. Question is:when you act for a living, when and where does the acting stop and living your true self begin?
