The immigrant

image

A Polish immigrant named Ewa who has just escaped the dangers of her homeland, struggles to earn enough money to take her sister out of quarantine.  A man named Bruno that works in show business lends a hand to her and he promises to take care of her. Ewa distrusts the man but figures she has no choice, so she stays. But Bruno’s means of helping her out of a bad situation are destructive. They only get worst when Ewa begins to grow closer to Bruno’s magician cousin who is caring and charming.

I thought this was going to be a romantic drama and it was so much more than that. It was more of a cautionary tale but each character evolved and Joaquin Phoenix, Jeremy Renner, and Marion Cotillard were brilliant as always.


If you love animals you should watch this documentary such a good story :)


So this video brought a tear to my eyes. Love knows no limits, for sure :*)


Q
Any movies that are like Mr. Nobody? It has become my favorite movie and I'm having trouble finding more like it.
A

Mr. Nobody, I haven’t watched that movie yet. If it is as good as you say, I know I’ll probably like it as well. I’m going to try to watch it either this week or next week and than I will let you know if I know similar films. Thank you for the recommendation :)


My Girl
Vada is a tomboyish eleven year old girl who’s grown up without a mother. Vada is curious about the world around her. She has a slight fascination with death because her mother passed away when she was a baby and her father is a mortician. Vada has grown up with a father who is a workaholic and a grandmother that is senile. Although Vada’s father loves her, he doesn’t give her the attention she craves. When Harry hires an assistant called Shelly, this shakes up Vada. Vada feels that her place in her father’s life is threatened by this new woman. Thankfully she is not alone because seeing her through her troubles is her loyal best friend Thomas J.
I know most of you have watched this film but it is such a good coming of age story that most of us won’t mind watching it once, twice, or even ten times. For those of you who haven’t watched it, watch it! It is a classic coming of age story, that will have you caring for each character in the film.

This was my favorite movie when I was a little kid. It just seems like the perfect summer movie. Watching it again brings back all those feelings :*)


The great outdoors

image

The Great Outdoors is a comedy about a man who brings his family on vacation for a week at a cabin up north, only to have his annoying brother-in-law bring his uninvited family along.

Written by John Hughes, with big names like John Candy and Dan Aykroyd, it’s a fun movie. Pretty much exactly what you’d expect from an 80s comedy film. If you like cheesy 80s comedies, this movie is for you!


I can’t wait until The hunger Games: Mockingjay part 1 comes out; I just finished reading all 3 books (which are amazing by the way). These trailers are killing me!
