Maggie's First Movie
We just got back from taking six-day-old Maggie to her first movie: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (Spielberg, 2008).
Maggie slept through the whole thing, but I thought it was awesome. The movie itself was harmless fun without much artistic or philosophical interest -- nowhere near as cool as Speed Racer (see my post on that film here.) But it was really amazing to be at the movie theater with my daughter on our first outing away from home since she was born.
It was especially appropriate that out first cinematic experience was a movie about an iconic Hollywood hero meeting his son. I look forward to many more father-daughter movie matinees.
