That Thing You Do!

Alphabet Movie challenge: day 2

Book adaptation I’d love to see Richard star in

Answer: The Winter of Our Discontent


quick summary: married man-father Ethan, runs small town grocery store that used to be owned by his family, but is now owned by an Italian immigrant. Wife & teenage children are dissatisfied with their status in the community, which starts to weigh heavily on Ethan. After an innocent conversation with a friend who works at the bank about what would be the best way to rob it, honest Ethan starts entertaining wild ideas. Events unfold that have Ethan acting very out of character in order to get back the store that belongs to his family.


Angst, Guilt, Breaking Free; ample opportunity for Richard to

do what he does so well 😎
