Co-written and directed by Til Schweiger,  Head Full Of Honey is the story of a man suffering from Alzheimer’s who embarks on a final road trip with his granddaughter.

Key cast includes Matt Dillon, Nick Nolte, Emily Mortimer, Claire Forlani, Eric Roberts…

I couldn’t help but notice what a good casting choice it was to have Nolte and Dillon play father and son. They kind of look alike, no? My overactive imagination also has me picturing an actual head full of honey. A visual that makes me think of two things ‘yummy’ and ‘Winnie The Pooh.’

I’m basically already preparing myself for film-induced weeping with this one. Fingers crossed it’ll all be worth it.

Head Full Of Honey Release Dates: November 30th, 2018 (US)…

ALIVE INSIDE (2014): Excellent Documentary About Music & Dementia

Inspired by Dan Cohen, founder of the nonprofit organization Music & Memory, Alive Inside presents brilliant insight into the broken American healthcare system. Specifically the nursing home and the extraordinary effect music has in restoring memory loss and a deep sense of self in dementia sufferers.

This is one of the best documentaries I’ve seen recently and it was impossible not to be moved by it.

Directed by Michael Rossato-Bennett, Alive Inside is the winner of the Audience Award at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. Watch it and feel empowered.

Happy Alive Inside 🙂
