11 days until Les Miserables: From Stage to Film
Today was the day in which Les Miserables was to be release originally, but it was postponed until Christmas day. The release of Les Miserables today was supposed to be the most amazing birthday present for me. I had already the day plan I was going to have breakfast with a friend and then with her to watch Les Mis and then in the afternoon ice-cream cake and go to the movies with my mom and sister. Now is only breakfast with my friend and diner with my mom and The Hobbit.
Any way to celebrate my birthday I decide to create a list about Broadway play that had become Films.

Time to go back to school!!
August is here, and that mean two things: First it means the best season for movies is over and the second it’s time to go back to school. Ah, School! We complain a lot about it, but when you leave it behind you really miss that magic time. For other like the braves stay home moms, it’s the magic time when they will be able to have a minute of silence, for those hard worker nannies and aupairs it’s an even better time when the will have a little of time for themselves. But for me it’s time to put together a list of the best movies about school.
