Gran Torino -- see it!

Gran Torino was an excellent movie.

Clint Eastwood was brilliant and the Hmong actors did a darned good job.

The basic story is about Clint getting to know his Hmong neighbors -- and coming to be their protector / mentor / friend. Of course, there is much more to it -- but, it isn't a Dirty Harry kind of movie.

Hubby said it best, at dinner afterward he said "that movie could have been 45 minutes longer".

See it -- it's the kind of movie that sticks with you.
