I haven’t had much television or stitching time, but when I did, I hit a couple of awesome shows I have to tell you about.
Are you a PBS fan? Are you a WWII fan? If you are, you must watch Atlantic Crossing.
The show starts as WWII is erupting. It focuses on the royal family from Norway. Here is the synopsis:
“A princess steals the heart of the president of the United States in an epic drama based on the World War II relationship of Franklin Roosevelt and Norwegian Crown Princess Martha. Kyle MacLachlan (Twin Peaks, Sex and the City) stars as Roosevelt, opposite Swedish star Sofia Helin (The Bridge) as the beautiful Martha, who flees the Nazis with her three young children and lives under Roosevelt’s protection. The eight-part series co-stars Tobias Santelmann as Crown Prince Olav and Harriet Sansom Harris as First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt.”
If you go to PBS’s website they do a Fact/Fiction page for each episode and I’ve been enjoying that. I’ve found myself looking up history online too. I know that once I do that, I’ve found a show that has me hooked. I HIGHLY recommend it. It is currently playing on PBS.
I rented a movie. I rarely do that but am so glad I did. I streamed it through Amazon. You can find the movie HERE. I saw a preview of the movie and knew immediatly, if I were going to the theatre I would have like to see this so, I rented it. The movie is Six Minutes to Midnight. Judi Dench is in it so I had to give it a try.
The story is based on real events. I found the movie very interesting and it was a big treat for me to rent a movie.
Here is the synopsis:
“Summer 1939. Influential families in Nazi Germany have sent their daughters to a finishing school in an English seaside town to learn the language and be ambassadors for a future looking National Socialist. A teacher there sees what is coming and is trying to raise the alarm. But the authorities believe he is the problem.”
Here is the trailer…
