HOLIDAY IN THE WILD (2019): The Things I Liked…

Holiday In The Wild is a fairly enjoyable film focused on the drama / romance between an elephant conservationist named Derek (Rob Lowe), and Kate (Kristin Davis), a newly jilted woman who meet for the first time while in Zambia, Africa.

Well acted and shot, I enjoyed the beautiful footage of Zambia and its majestic animals – mainly the elephants. All the festive cheer was also very welcome; especially since I’ve been in the mood for Christmas for several weeks now.

I’d say that ‘easy viewing’ is definitely the phrase for director Ernie Barbarash’s movie. I had fun even though perhaps unsurprisingly, near the start of the film I couldn’t stop seeing Davis’s Kate as the most famous character she’s ever played. None other than Charlotte York of HBO’s Sex And The City, of course. As a Charlotte fan, I can’t say that I was too mad about that.

Watch Holiday In The Wild for that easy viewing, ‘Christmassy’ vibe – set in Zambia and with Elephants!

Lastly, let me know if you too found yourself really appreciating how good a son the character played by John Owen Lowe appeared to be.

Happy Film Loving
