Everything is Illuminated

Based on the novel by Jonathan Safran Foer, is this endearing film starring Elijah Wood as a "collector" on a "rigid search" for a woman who is ultimately responsible for his existence. At times hysterically funny and at others heartbreakingly sad -- the fact that the characters are so well portrayed and developed truly makes this story come to life. We both will admit to being leery about a film (of this sort) having the potential to drag, however if anything it felt as though it ended all too soon.

Since there haven't been any wine oriented posts of late, we thought it was worth noting the Stella Pinot Grigio that we enjoyed while watching the aforementioned movie. We picked it up at our local Trader Joe's for a reasonable $11.99, pairing it with a veggie pizza. As most Pinot Grio's are, it is light and crisp, perfect for the warmer weather that is coming upon us...

Thanks for recommending Everything is Illuminated. I really enjoyed the movie! I especially loved the character of Alex. What a silly Ukrainian :)
