@chibisashimi requested: “a pretty, frothy Sense and Sensibility type fake movie staring Nicole Beharie, Chadwick Boseman, Gina Torres and Lawrence Fishburne.”

The music that came up: Postmodern Jukebox’s cover of Rhianna’s We Found Love

Yellow Diamonds -- When Lord Willoughby dies quite suddenly of a fever, the estate is set into an uproar.  His only two sons, Arthur and Fredrick (Fishburne and Boseman), had a falling out with the family ten years ago and have not been home since.  Rumors have swirled since they day they left – of the great tragedy that caused the family to scatter to the winds, of fathers betrayed and sons disowned – but no one has ever been able to confirm the truth of it all.

Now both of the prodigal sons must return home – each having made something of themselves, each having married, each having reason to think their claim on the estate is stronger than the other.  Their first meeting ends most unfortunately with raised voices and ugly recriminations.

Now their wives – Isobella (Torres), a naturalist who would rather spend time with her flowers and bees than at balls, and Beatrice (Beharie), the daughter of a Carribean governor whose fiery pen is well-known, even in these country hills – must forge a friendship and find a way to bring their newfound family  together, to bring old secrets to light, and to put old jealousies to rest.

Movie Meme: [4/20] movies » John Wick (2014)
“John is a man of focus, commitment, sheer will… something you know very little about. I once saw him kill three men in a bar, with a pencil. With a fucking… pencil. Then suddenly one day he asked to leave. It’s over a woman, of course. So I made a deal with him. I gave him an impossible task. A job no one could have pulled off. The bodies he buried that day laid the foundation of what we are now. And then my son, a few days after his wife died, you steal his car and kill his fuckin’ dog.”
