I watched a movie, “Wit” that I happened by at Blockbuster.  It was cheap and looked interesting enough, so I bought it.  I hadn’t heard of it, but it had Emma Thompson in it.  She’s generally a good actress and the description of the movie made it sound interesting enough.  It was actually pretty good.  It is quirky and has both a sense of humor and a sense of seriousness about a serious subject: dying from cancer.  It is centered around a professor of english poetry who is considered the most knowledgable person about the writings of John Donne, a 17th century poet.  It is based on an award winning play.  It was interesting how they mixed her memories of her human interactions with her present self dressed in hospital gowns interacting with the memories.  The subject was interesting and it was overall a good movie.
