Hideous Kinky

Tonight I’ve decided to kick it old school.  And by old school I mean watch a VHS that I borrowed from the library because it’s the only place that had the movie I’ve been wanting to watch over and over again.  So, tonight it’s just me and VCR.

Eleven years ago my English class in Australia took a field trip to the movies to watch Hideous Kinky, a little known Kate Winslet movie set in Morocco.  Mesmerizing, although a strange field trip to take.  At 17, I knew I had to go to Morocco one day. But Europe had to come first, then university got in the way and you know how it goes.

You can imagine my joy as I travelled across the desert, passing by kasbahs and oases, seeing places where the movie was set and passing the hotel where Kate Winslet stayed while on location.  Tonight I will relive those moments by watching a high quality VHS!

Now excuse me please while I try to figure out how to plug in a VCR.
