We've done it--we have reached the final letter in the alphabet. This one was hard, but I managed to find a favorite story that fits the bill nicely.
Oh come on. Do you blame me for picking it? Plus, I am rather smitten with Antonio Banderas.
It's a rags to riches story, and a redemption story, and a justice story, and a hero story. And did I mention Banderas? I really enjoy a fun film (and I am really just talking about the two movies with Banderas, because the old tv show was fun but not a favorite) that engages me on so many levels. I know, I think too much, and sometimes find lots of things in stories other people don't, and I'm sure for many, this is just a silly movie where swords are brandished with flare. But for me, it's a rather epic story, with a little romance thrown in (I have to give kudos to Catherine Zeta-Jones, for her fiery portrayal of the love interest). Oh, and did I mention that Anthony Hopkins is in there too? He is!
So check out The Mask of Zorro and The Legend of Zorro so you can see what I'm talking about.
And thanks for participating in this fun, 26 day journey through some of my favorite stories! Don't be a stranger, and I'll try to update on a regular basis with my meandering and sojournings and whatnots.
