  1. Hi Kimberly, I was trying to remember this Danish film yesterday. You can stream it from Netflix.
    After the Wedding (Efter Brylluppet) by Director Susanne Bier. So nice to have met you.
    To save the failing orphanage he runs in India, Danish transplant Jacob Petersen (Mads Mikkelsen) returns to his homeland to meet a self-indulgent businessman named Jørgen who’s offered a generous donation — and represents everything the noble-minded Jacob abhors. Complicating matters further are the unusual strings Jørgen has attached to his so-called gift. Rolf Lassgård co-stars in this Oscar-nominated emotional powerhouse of a drama.


  2. I’m very happy to have known you. You are an awesome woman with a deep heart and much caring for the world around you. We need more people like you in this world.
