Monday Movie Meme

Come over to The Bumbles Blog for a great movie meme. Terry Kate from Romance in the Backseat is guest hosting. Today's Feature Presentation: Hidden Gems. Fill us in on the great films you have discovered that most viewers don't know about. I usually stick to fairly mainstream movies, but here are a few that you may have missed.
5 Children and It (2004) - The premise is similar to The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. Four children must stay in their eccentric uncle's home for protection during World War I. The "it" is a sand fairy. Great movie! Stars Freddie Highmore.
Something the Lord Made (2004) - Based on the true story of cardiologist Alfred Blalock and his African-American lab technician Vivien Thomas who invent bypass surgery for blue babies in 1941 at John Hopkins, an institution where the Jim Crow laws are alive and well.
The Chosen (1982) - Stars Maximillian Schell and Robby Benson. This is a story of two Jewish young men growing up in the 1940's.

Something the Lord Made was an Amazing movie I did not ever see it in the theaters but on TV twice, the best part is understanding that it happened in real life what a great tribute to Vivien Thomas!

I haven't seen any of these movies, but they all sound amazing. Adding them to my list!

Melanie said...

I haven't heard of either of those 3 but Something the Lord made sounds really good.

Terry Kate said...

Oh I love the second one!

What can I say? I am a sucker for Alan Rickman every time.

Great list and thanks for taking part,
