What movie would you live in?

My good friend, Heidi, has a great blog named "Finishing the Hat". She blogs about her experiences with weight loss (50 pounds so far!!!), fun activities in Los Angeles and cooking. She has shared some fabulous recipes thus far - the latest is for grilled peaches.

Mondays are always Friend Making Monday for her and this week's question got me thinking....

If you lived in a movie, which one would it be? And which character would you play?

Going with the first thing to come to mind, it would be Tracy Lord (played by Katherine Hepburn) in The Philadelphia Story. Hepburn plays a strong-willed woman who is discovering her true self along with her true love. Plus, the fashion is amazing!

Somewhere, I think there's a picture of me in Palm Springs that looks something like this:

Besides, she ends up with Cary Grant (swoon)

So, what would you answer be?


  1. The first thing I thought of was "Enchanted April" 1992 (as I just watched it the other day) I would play Rose Arbuthnot, as at the time of watching I greatly related to the character . . . The other that came to mind was "The Enchanted Cottage" 1945, and I would be Laura. I suppose that I like enchantment, but there is a common theme in both films; a place beyond the world;love comes if allowed & is in the eye of the beholder.

  2. Once upon a time, a close friend called me up to say she had seen Amelie and the title character reminded her of me. When I saw the movie, what I thought was that the title character reminded me of who I wanted to be. So, though Heidi already beat me to the punch, I'd have to say Amelie, a film about someone who lives inside her own dream world while still noticing the wonderful details, beauty, and magic of the real one.

    But often I feel like the movies that most resemble my life and my heart are silent ones. No character in particular, no film in particular.

    Or...The Big Chill! A group of lovely friends, bound together by varying degrees of intimacy, who have fun, argue, talk about nothing and everything, and listen to really good music.
