Rental Review: Gifted

I have been traveling a lot lately (much to my chagrin) and though I feel exhausted, all of the planes, trains and automobiles have given me ample time to download and stream. On a recent flight from San Francisco to Boston I watched Gifted, starring Sudbury, MA native Chris Evans.

Read: What She Ate

I was so excited to start reading What She Ate by Laura Shapiro. I had seen a few stellar reviews and it since it focuses on two of my favorite things, strong women and food, it seemed an obvious winner.

Stream: Transparent (Season 4)

I have been a big fan of Transparent since it first premiered. It's a show that really makes me think. It expands my mind and pushes me to broaden my approach to the world.

It's also the most accurate account of life in a Jewish American family that I've ever seen on television or in a movie. 

Season four was released at the end of September and this time we accompany the Pfeffermans on a family trip to Israel. Maura is invited to give a lecture based on one of her books and Ali tags along.
