Blake Lively is the star of the Lee Toland Krieger directed fantasy / romance, The Age Of Adaline, a movie about a woman rendered ageless following an accident.
Also starring Michael Huisman, Ellen Burstyn and Harrison Ford, Krieger’s film deals with the bittersweet realities that arise as a result of Adaline’s unique situation and with particular reference to her romantic life.
I did enjoy the movie, especially the romance even though there was a point towards the end when one of Adalines decisions just felt incredibly rash/ hasty…
I’ve given it a bit of thought and think that if I were afforded the option, I’d probably choose to have the ageing process slowed down quite a bit rather than stopped completely. That way everyone can hopefully just put it down to good genes.
Did anyone else notice the resemblence between the rather handsome Michiel Huisman and Shia LeBeouf? Not to say that they’re twins of course.
The trailer is here for the new film about Jesse Owens, the American athlete who achieved greatness against massive odds…
It’s a shame that upon returning to America after winning 4 gold medals at the Berlin Olympics, Owens wasn’t treated as well as you might expect for an American hero.
During that time, as bad as things were in Nazi Germany, they weren’t great for people of colour in the United States either. Nevertheless, Race, the story of Jesse Owens is still a powerful one, especially for all oppressed people with big dreams.
Directed by Stephen Hopkins; Stephan James stars as Owens with Jason Sudeikis, William Hurt and Jeremy Irons in the key supporting roles.
