Film (Home)School

It's entirely possible that I love movies just as much as I love books. There are so many films out there to absorb and explore, it's easy to get lost in the big-budget "popcorn movies" and miss all the hidden gems (not that I don't appreciate a good popcorn flick). The husband and I started Film (Home)School as a challenge to ourselves. Our goal: To explore genres, directors, production value and various periods of movie-making history to the Nth degree. We invite you to follow along and explore with us!
