Arranged **UPDATED**

** It was Charlotte from Waltzing Matilda who wrote a wonderful review of this movie! Thank you, Charlotte! **

I'm starting to get a bit worried... in less than one month I've had three different infections, and two different rounds of fever/chills. Please pray for me!

In the meantime, what better way to sweat out a fever than by watching a fun movie? I wish I remembered where I saw this movie recommended... I hate not being able to give credit where it is due, but I honestly have no idea what blog I saw this on.



Anyway,








this is an wonderful movie.

Seriously.

If you are a member of Netflix, you have the option of watching it on your computer (no extra charge).

It is the story of Rachel and Nasira, two women from vastly different cultures (Orthodox Judaism and Islam) who become friends. The bond that brings them together, of course, is in the title: in both cultures, marriages are arranged.

So whether you're wrapped up in a fuzzy robe, trying desperately to get warm and feel better (like I am), or just needing a fun "chick flick" to bring a smile to your evening, I wholeheartedly recommend ARRANGED.

God bless!

It might have been mine since I posted a review last week. I am so glad you liked it. Wasn't it a good movie? It really sparked a lot of interesting discussion around here. I am so glad someone else watched it!

I love all your wonderful reviews, and ideas - I have no idea how you do it all, but I'm glad that you do! I will be praying for you that you recover quickly, the constant sickness has to be draining.

Claire, thank you for your prayers. It was a stressful weekend, but God and friends came through!

I rented this movie from blockbuster about a year ago. I was looking for a GOOD movie and man did I find one. It was a great movie and I've watched it several times since. Glad others like it too.
