Over the last year, Bart and I have started watching more documentaries. We usually try and watch them on Sunday evening, after Ella’s gone to bed, as a nice way to wind down the weekend.
We certainly don’t watch one every weekend, but when the stars align and we have both a chosen movie AND a free evening, it’s been something we’ve really enjoyed.
A few we’ve watched:
- Forks Over Knives
- The Hobart Shakespeareans
- Food, Inc
- The Business of Being Born
- Two Angry Moms
- From the Earth to the Moon (a childhood favorite of mine, which is actually a docu-drama produced by Tom Hanks)
The main downside is that the poor girls I run with on Monday morning get to hear WAY more than they ever wanted to know about whatever movie we just watched the night before.
So now the question is. . . .what documentaries would YOU suggest we watch? You can see we tend to like ones about education, history, and food, but we’re happy to take titles. And then run them through the very reliable filter of “what does our library own?”
