Local Hero - Another less than typical holiday flick

If you haven't seen Local Hero (1983) you should. And Christmas is a great time to watch it. Not only because the scenery is beautiful, the story funny but poignant but there's even a sort of miracle...and shooting stars!

This movie also has an amazing soundtrack. And I once sat on a ferry that was slowly navigating its way from Vancouver to Victoria, BC through freshly covered snow clad islands, staring out a huge window while listening to this on my walkman (old version of ipod...iphone). It was one of those rare but perfect moments.

You can watch the entire movie here...
