Dancing Away


Meryl Streep on the island of Skopelos, Greece.
                                   
I have a secret crush on Meryl Steep. I absolutely adore her. Mama Mia with Phyllida Lloyd as director is a light-hearted, quite enjoyable  music/romantic comedy film.                                                                           It is based on the great songs of Abba. Have you seen it? It is really entertaining and the female and male 
characters are quite hilarious. Overall, a feel-good movie.
Superb songs, fascinating scenery, a fabulous Greek island!
Not quite my preferred genre, actually. But I loved it and I'd highly recommend it.

blueviolet said...

I think she's pretty fabulous too, but I've never seen that movie. I guess I should!

Tracy said...

I have never seen the movie because I am not that much into musicals, but if the scenery is as beautiful as those photos I might have to give it a try. I think Meryl is a fantastic actress.

Love Mama Mia! And Meryl Streep is awesome!

I never knew what people meant by a feel good movie until I saw this film. Meryl is a wonderful actress I agree with you.

KrippledWarrior said...

Don't spread this around. But I watched that movie. And despite not being an ABBA fan, I liked it quite a lot...

Bossy Betty said...

Love Meryl and love "Mama Mia" too! I saw it on the stage and in the theater. I think I will begin singing those songs now! My family REALLY thanks you for this!

RA said...

Not my type of movie, actually. But I loved every second of it. Honestly, movies with such a high entertainment value are way to few and far between! Besides, I adore Colin Firth. Seeing him as a gay guy turned me... on! :D

Shigune Matsui said...

I've never really gotten to seeing Mamma Mia! , but I will tell you: that movie is the 50th highest grossing movie of all time. Pretty interesting huh?

Ted said...

That is a nice movie!
Great songs, but what I love mostly is your beautiful photographs!

This movie is not really my preferred genre but what I love about is:
Meryl Steep, the Abba songs, the beautiful scenery and the fabulous Greek islands.

Christiejolu said...

My girls love this movie!

The pics are beautiful!

JoJo said...

I love Meryl! She's very talented. She won me over in The Devil Wears Prada. I saw mamia, but the movie is nothing compared to the Broadway show. The show is incredible! I highly recommend it!
P.S I've been following you for a while now :-).

Kelly said...

I have not seen the movie, but I've heard it's quite a fun film.

Your photos are refreshingly beautiful!!

Pat said...

I pretty much enjoy ANY movie that Meryl Streep is in, and I particularly liked her in Mama Mia! That was such a feel good movie! I thought the scenery was absolutely gorgeous! And who doesn't love ABBA music, right?

Your photos are stunning! Love the fresh blue color of the water!

Thanks for the photos dear, I can now try to imagine what summer is like while I cover myself in a thick blanket lol
Have a great weekend xxx

athina said...

I have seen that movie.I liked it but the end of the movie was unexpected for me.
Nice photos!

Turquoise Diaries said...

I already saw so many wonderful pics from that movie now all I have to do is watch it but as you said musicals are not my favorite neither...

Bec said...

Thanks for checking out my blog :) Followed you back :)

Emm said...

Gosh, you know what? I really need to make an effort to watch this film or see the play. I adore Abba and you're right - Meryl Streep is pure class.

Emm said...

Oh, by the way... I forgot to say! I love your photos in the post. I was just thinking this mroning that I needed to get away from it all and see the sea and you made me feel like I had been there!

Tracie said...

I love her. I haven't seen this movie but I saw "It's Complicated" while the boys were away. Your photos are gorgeous!

ruma2008 said...

The sky. The sea.
Both have brightness such as the jewel.

Even as for the cloud, I am dazzling...

Thank you.

Mr. Stupid said...

She's amazing. I did watch her in "It's complicated". Loved the pictures. They are very beautiful.
Smiles...

Nevine said...

Meryl Streep is a genius! I don't think there's a role she can't do. And I've quite a fetish for ABBA, so that was an awesome movie, as far as I was concerned. Very very cool for the summer.

And your photos make me feel like taking a swim. It's been at least a week since I took a long plunge and immersed myself in water. I think I'll do that this weekend... right around the corner.

I wish you a lovely weekend, dear Betty. Enjoy the gorgeous sun!

Kristen said...

I not only love Mamma Mia, but I too, love Meryl Streep! Especially in the film It's Complicated!

septembermom said...

She's an amazing actress. I really want to see that movie. It also has another one of my favorites, Colin Firth.

Love the pictures.

Traci said...

Great movie (it makes me want to visit!!!) and great actress. The movie Julie and Julia was my inspiration for blogging. Just think without that movie, I might never have met you. That would have been terribly sad!

tattytiara said...

I'm not a musical fan, but I'll see pretty much anything else with Streep in it as well. So much skill and talent, such a pleasure to watch - even when she's making me cry my heart out!

Kelly said...

Love Mama Mia! Seen it several times. Thanks for the follow. Following back!

I just saw the movie "It's Complicated" with her and Alec Baldwin. She's such a treasure. It is a joy to watch her in any film. And she ages with such grace, too. Not all plasticy, like so many older actresses.

Beautiful pictures.

I love that movie. I remember when I was little I'd dance and sing on my trampoline to my mom's ABBA cd. I love them!
