A moment of parental pride

Posted at 5:26 PM on December 9, 2007 by Euan Kerr (1 Comments)

As parents we all remember the milestones of our children's development: first word, first step, first time hauled up in front of the principal, that kind of thing.

Well, I witnessed one last week and frankly I'm a little tickled. Sarah-the-19-year-old sent an e-mail from college recommending a movie.

She had seen "Radiant City." It's a National Film Board of Canada and CBC collaboration using humor to tackle the issue of urban sprawl.

Sarah sent this note: "It was hilarious and informative, I would highly recommend it for you and mom if you are ever looking for a movie to get off of netflix."

It just made me so proud for some reason. And I also added it to the queue.

Ah now, that takes me back. I remember when you were 19 and made recommendations of films that were not on the block buster variety. I remember going to the Edinburgh Film Festival to see Zorro the Gay Blade, on your recommendation (and free tickets) and really enjoying the film. 19 year olds are worth listening to.
