I love this movie. At first I thought it was going to be just another feel good movie about family life that it’s realistic. I was wrong I love being wrong
Diane Keaton was great in this movie, a bit like the character from “Because i said So”, it’s a cute movies. But Olivia Wilde, surprised me in this movie, She’s is gorgeous, I mean if I could have those eyes I would although stye would look weird on my face, but moving on. So the movie was real and fucked up, like all families right. I’m being distracted. Okay so the characters in the move are real and can literally be anyone in society. That’s what i liked about it.
We all know of the perfect couple hiding the fact that they have fallen out of love and fighting what they think is the end. Then there are those that in the middle of typing to handle being the divorced parent. Add in sibling rivalry, dreams, and jealously this makes for a good feel movie on epic proportions.
There are secrets and lies for no reason, just because people think that the truth can’t be handled, even though we all know it is just made worse by being kept a secret.
Right? We’ve all heard of the saying that the truth will set you free and it’s true, but a hard pill to swallow.
It’s a story about family and the struggles of new beginnings all centered around Christmas when the feel goods are at their peak.
And yes, Diane Keaton is wearing one of those ridiculous dresses that puff out…
I must say that I am quite surprised by this book. When I first laid eyes on it, the semi-thin bright green cover piqued my interest. Then when I saw that it was the movie that Hermionie Granger, aka Emma Watson was in I knew that I wanted to read it as well as watch it.
So I dove right in not even knowing what to expect. First I didn’t know if I liked the way the book was organized with the letter format, but it quickly grew on me. I found myself right there with Charlie when he told Sam that she was beautiful and in the room with Patrick and Brad. I found myself rooting for Charlie when he saved Patrick from the jocks and the felt the pain of rejection when he messed up with Mary Elizabeth. The best part about the book was that I didn’t even know I was being sucked in until I finished the book in less than six hours. And it happened to be the first book I have finished of the year. I can’t wait for there to be more. I am reading The Secret Garden on the Kindle, but back to the story.
I loved this book for so many reason. First that Charlie was such a unique character and they way he thought about things or saw things that people didn’t want him to see. It just made me like him that much more. I like the animosity of Sam and Patrick. It’s like he just randomly met them one day at a football game. They were always there from the beginning, but fate told them to take a chance on Charlie. And they listened and did.
So it’s going to be hard to find anything that compares to this novel, but I will do my damndest to try.
