Ocean's 8

Saturday night, Sharon and I watched Ocean's 8 on AppleTV. The film is both a continuation and a spin-off from Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's trilogy: Ocean's 11 [2001]; Ocean's 12 [2004], and; Ocean's 13 [2007]. While I have a vague memory of seeing Ocean's 11, I am pretty sure that I never saw the second two film in the trilogy.

The movie features an ensemble cast, including Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, and Awkwafina. The film follows the group of women led by Debbie Ocean, the sister of Danny Ocean, who plan a sophisticated heist of the annual Met Gala in New York City.

The setting for much of the film is The Metropolitan Museum of Art. I have been there a number of times, including our trip to New York in March. I always enjoy books and films more when they are set somewhere I have been.

Overall, I enjoyed the film. Sharon liked it more than I did...
