21.


Based on a true story but fictionalized, this is the story of MIT students who counted cards in Vegas and made some good money.  I won’t say more than that about the plot, but will say the movie was well done and I enjoyed it on my transatlantic flight from London to Cleveland.

It was cool to see Boston and Cambridge — MIT, the T, etc., on the big screen (err, laptop…).

I would like to read the book “Bringing Down the House” that this movie was based on.

Bach’s Concerto for Two Violins in D minor (bwv 1043) showed up at one point, so that is now in my monthly play list.
