Summer Reading List

Standard

Two years ago during the Film Festival, we screened The Descendants and had a Q&A with the lead opposite George Clooney, Shailene Woodley. I remember sitting there thinking how well-spoken, down to earth and real she was while holding a mic and speaking to a room full of strangers. She had a command and presence that just pulled you in.

Fast forward to today, and she is blowing up. With the lead in the Divergent series (which by the by, is a FANTASTIC series and highly recommended if you enjoy/ed Hunger Games) and The Fault in Our Stars (just picked up the book, plan on reading it during this weekend’s Colorado trip), she’s in this spectacular trailer, The Spectacular Now. It’s also based off a book.

There’s your Summer reading list courtesy of Shailene Woodley’s movie career.

Oh and naturally, I’m all about the song in this trailer– “Feel Again” by OneRepublic

Beware, Mother-Daughter Date Night

Standard

Mom crushes on George Clooney. I crush on Ryan Gosling. And now, the two came together for a movie. And here’s the thing, it’s a movie that looks fantastic. Like Michael Clayton meets Fracture meets State of Play.

Clearly we’ve got a movie date on our hands this October. Trailer below for Ides of March.
