Erica loves movies where nothing happens and people just sit around and talk. And yet she had never seen My Dinner With Andre, perhaps the prototypical such movie, so I picked up the Criterion Collection version for her for Christmas and we finally got around to watching it. The movie is just as I've said—two men meet for dinner and talk. Absolutely nothing happens, nothing is decided, no one changes. And it's a wonderful movie. Andre Gregory's story of his personal and theatrical explorations verge on self-parody, but there's a sincerity that carries him through.
