One of the first movies I am going to see this weekend isAngels and Demons. Like almost everyone else, I read The Da Vinci Code before reading this book, even though Dan Brown wrote this one first. I enjoyed this book more than I did Da Vinci and was lucky enough to go to Rome after I read it and see most of the important places talked about in the book: Piazza Navona, Chigi Chapel, Santa Maria della Vittoria, the Vatican, and many others. I do think the ending to the book was a little farfetched, so it will be interesting to see what Ron Howard does.
Besides this movie, my weekend and week will be filled with going to theKimbell Museum in Ft. Worth for the Art and Love in Renaissance Italy exhibition, going to hear Kathleen Kent and Cristina Henríquez speak at another Arts and Letters Live – Fresh Ink event, going to the Meadows Museum for an Etruscan exhibition, and perhaps seeing Topol play Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof on his farewell tour as the commercials for this have been endless.
Maybe some live music can be thrown in the mix as well.
