"Really... A Movie Review?"

Exonumia | Kepi

This isn't going to be the traditional blog about coinage... Rather one about a movie I watched a few nights ago. "The Good Marriage", based on a short story and psychological thriller written by Stephen King. It comes from the collection titled "Full Dark, No Stars". The movie was released in October 2014. Starring Joan Allen, Anthony LaPaglia, Kristen Connolly and Stephen Lang. Now if there's a Stephen King movie on, I'm all over it... Scary, dark, mind-bending stories! What's not to love! The thing with this particular movie is that (and pleasantly to my surprise) it involves coins! Well... and a Serial Killer! As not to give too much of the plot away... Darcy Anderson (Joan Allen) has been married to Bob (Anthony LaPaglia) an accountant from Portland, Maine, for 27 years. They have a happy yet ho-hum relationship, running a mail order business selling and appraising rare coins. Darcy discovers her husband's sinister secret while he is away on a business trip... Yes for coins! A few months after Darcy's "discoveries", Bob is elated to find, yes find...can you imagine...He finds a rare 1955 Doubled Die Cent in miscellaneous change and the couple goes out to celebrate. Now this is where I stop. So at this point the movie might sound a bit corny, but did I mention Serial Killer early in my blog... Let's just say if you are a Stephen King fan and enjoy when coins play a part on the big screen then you might want to check this one out!

Thanks for reading my blog, hope you enjoyed it! ; )
