My dad went out of town for a much needed break from caregiving, and I stepped in to stay with my mom and pretty much eat ice cream til we ran out, make grilled cheese sandwiches, never tell her to take her pills, and watch movies that she goes to bed halfway through. It’s not easy picking a movie to watch with your 83-year-old mother who gets embarrassed when there’s swearing. So I picked Late Night, the Mindy Kaling Emma Thompson film because it seemed nice and it also has John Lithgow who is always great. There was swearing but at least no sex. Mom asked me if it was a regular movie or a made for TV movie. Made for paid TV movie? Made for streaming? Straight to streaming?
I enjoyed it.
