Movie Grade: A
Everything, Everything was perfect. I truly mean everything about this movie was awesome. Before I get into most of the review, I have to talk about the thing that kept me spellbound throughout the entire movie. I literally felt saturated in wonderful, soft fabric. I don’t know if they did this on purpose: if they did, kudos to them. If it was just great set design and wardrobe choices, again, kudos to them. Every room in the movie had wonderful fabrics, from pillows to blankets to rugs. Every outfit that Maddy wears is amazing. I just felt wrapped up in security, warmth, and love, the entire movie. That was my favorite part.
The movie itself had great actors that nailed the story. Each member of the cast did a great job bringing this movie to life. I was mesmerized the whole time. It’s been a long time since a movie made me feel good. This one did just that.
This movie would make a great mother/daughter date. The movie from the angle of a mother, versus the angle of the daughter…really makes you think. As the mother of a 25 year old and a grandmother of a 4 year old, I could see both sides. It was tugging on my heart strings; the circle of life is an amazing thing. Just when you think you have life figured out, another curve ball is coming your way, no matter what your age is.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy this movie. I did, and was happily rewarded with a masterpiece.
