“Too many lies, Too many truths”

I started it without having the slightest idea that it was based on a true story[2], or that years later it would be a mini-series with exceptional protagonists! Sarah Gadon (11/22/63) is the protagonist, flanked by Kerr Logan (Game of Thrones) in the role of the alleged accomplice, Anna Paquin (True Blood, X-Men) in those of the murdered housekeeper, Edward Holcroft (Vampire Academy) is the face of the doctor who will seek an answer. The mini-series was directed by Mary Harron (American Psycho) with a screenplay adapted by Sarah Polley (Dawn of the Living Dead, Splice).

Through The Mirror

(the recipe is from my English friend, John)

Ingredients for about 20 biscuits

Through The Mirror

“Yes, it is. It’s, like, when someone has an affair, why does the wife always hate the other woman? Why doesn’t she hate her husband? He’s the one who’s betrayed her, he’s the one who swore to love her and keep her and whatever forever and ever. Why isn’t he the one who gets shoved off a fucking cliff?”
― Paula Hawkins, quote from Into the Water

I think this can be defined for me as the Summer of thrillers, which is definitely one of my favorite genres, but I usually leave them for the winter, wrapped in blankets and with a nice hot chocolate to comfort me.

Naively, I was convinced that the quiz I was taking part to with my … Continua a leggere “Pancakes, Brandy & Manipulation”
