Blow Dry

This is a very sweet British indie about a small town in England and a hair cutting contest. It’s a goofy premise, but it works. We were inspired to watch this due to the presence of the recently departed and much loved Alan Rickman, as well as pride of South Minneapolis Josh Hartnett. He went to my high school, and seeing him here with a fairly decent English accent was very strange. This movie had a ton of heart. At times it edged into something stickily sentimental, but never it a bad way. It made both of my parents cry. It was a lovely little story about family, and working together, and community. Absolutely lovely.
