Forced my hubby to watch a Hallmark Christmas movie with me, The Christmas Bow, how sticking cute. Great to see an actual violinist in the part, without both of us giggling that they can't play and think we won't notice...
There's another movie coming up where the actress is not a musician, said she had to practice 4 hours a day for 2 weeks just to able to look realistic, and commented that she wanted to have her bowing down and fingers in the right places for the camera even though she didn't know the note, she wanted to make it look right. She thought it was the hardest instrument to learn and was giggling that she had a body double to actually play. (maybe I should have spent 2 weeks 4 hours a day bowing, as when she demonstrated it looked prefect!)
Looking forward to watching that one too!
I love Lucia, she is an amazing violinist, I saw her live a couple times many years ago when she was touring with Josh Groban. I haven't seen the movie, but it looks like a good one. She injured her hand quite a while back, a deep cut I think that severed a few nerves, and had to have the nerves repaired. She was afraid she wouldn't be able to play anymore. A horrible injury for a soloist to get.

Mimi Aysha -
I finally watched "Christmas Bow".
Going to get the Grandkids to watch - they'll love it, too!
Watching someone in a movie who actually can play the violin beautifully is soooo refreshing.
The only thing that kinda irked me was when they dubbed her singing (was too obvious) and maybe she tried a little too hard to look expressive, but the movie definitely got me started in "Xmas Mode"! ❄🤗❄
I've started, but still got a lot of Xmas & Birthday shopping to do. ❄🎁❄
