The Way Way Back

Oh another good movie weekend. I have been waiting for this one to come out. The previews for it caught my attention!

I went to see “The Way Way Back” this past Friday night. I LOVED it. It is funny, sweet, sad and exciting all at the same time. Plus you get to see Steve Carell in a whole new light.

Way way back

Plot: 14-year-old Duncan’s summer vacation with his mother, her overbearing boyfriend, and his daughter. Having a rough time fitting in, Duncan finds an unexpected friend in Owen, manager of the Water Wizz water park.

The Kings of Summer

I hope you all had a good weekend! It always goes so fast.

I saw a good movie this weekend. So good, that I have to tell you all about it.

It is a little Indie film that premiered to great ratings at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. It was filmed in Ohio.

Plot: Joe Toy (Nick Robinson), on the verge of adolescence, finds himself increasingly frustrated by the attempts of his single father, Frank (Nick Offerman), to manage his life. Declaring his freedom once and for all, he escapes to a clearing in the woods with his best friend, Patrick (Gabriel Basso), and a strange kid named Biaggio (Moisés Arias). He announces that they are going to build a house there, free from responsibility and parents. Once their makeshift abode is finished, the three young men find themselves masters of their own destiny, alone in the woods.

This movie is funny and entertaining. The boys cast in their roles are FANTAASTIC. Patrick’s parents are amazingly funny and so awkward.

I highly recommended going to see it if it is in a theater near you. Let me know what you think!

Touch & Go by Lisa Gardner

T&G

I finished Lisa Gardner’s “Touch & Go” last night.

I really enjoyed it! I Could not put it down.

About: “When Justin and Libby Denbe, along with their beautiful 15-year-old daughter, disappear, investigator Tessa Leoni must race against time to expose the Denbes’ darkest secrets to discover who would want to kidnap such a perfect little family and just how far they are willing to go.”

Really recommend this book and any of Lisa Gardner’s books.
