One of my favorite movies is Coal Miner's Daughter. It is one of the few movies that my Dad has watched and he really likes it too. One of the things that I like about it is that it portrays the life of Loretta Lynn without any hint of irony, just plays it like it is and shows her upbringing with a great honor and respect. This movie was directed by the English director, Michael Apted and he is one of my favorite directors! Has the documentary "56 Up" come out yet? He filmed children at the age of seven and have visited them every seven years since that time. Have you ever seen these documentaries? I find them fascinating. Michael Apted has also directed some of my favorite movies, Gorillas In The Mist, Amazing Grace, and Voyage Of The Dawn Treader.
Hey! I found the Seven -Up documentary, so if you would like to see a snippit of it, it is here for you!
