1 Night Movie Review and Giveaway

We received the opportunity to watch an early release of 1 Night from Level 33.  The movie stars: Anna Camp, Justin Chatwin, Isabelle Fuhrman and Kyle Allen.

Written and directed by: Minhal Baig. Produced by Kerry Barden, Han S Canosa and Marius A Markevicius.






Thirty-something Elizabeth (Anna Camp) must decide whether to salvage her relationship with Drew (Justin Chatwin) after much personal disappointment. Meanwhile, Bea (Isabelle Fuhrman), a worrisome teenager, reconnects with her introverted childhood friend, Andy (Kyle Allen) to overcome their differences in high school social status following their prom. Past and present collide as two couples explore love over the course of one night at a hotel.

My thoughts:

I have always been a sucker for a romantic comedy so was eager to jump at the chance to watch this early release.  The movie is a little over an hour long, so no long drawn out drama.  I did enjoy the movie, and was able to sit still through it, without jumping up here and there, to watch it all.  I won't give out the ending, but there is a small twist at the end, that if you have watched the whole movie, you can probably figure out what it will be.  I think after the first few minutes of the movie, it was pretty easy to figure out what was going on and how it would turn out at the end. I found the acting to be a bit above average, but the characters were likable and though there are many actors in the movie, only a small handful actually have speaking parts.   

None the less, I did enjoy it and I think that people will enjoy it as well.  1 Night was released on February 10th, which was just in time for Valentine's Day.  If you get a chance, I would check it out if it is playing near you, and it is also available in a digital format as well.

I Love My Grandma Book by Giles Andreae and Illustrated by Emma Dodd Review

http://images.abovethetreeline.com/ea/TW/images/jacket_covers/original/9781484734070_a2fa4.jpg?width=1000

By: Giles Andreae
Illustrated: Emma Dodd
On Sale: December 6, 2016
Disney-Hyperion
Price: $16.99.
Age Group: 3-5 years of age.
32 pages
Also available via eBook.

Summary:  Story of the love between a Grandma and a Grandchild and the adventures that they have.

Our Review:

As you can see, our kiddo falls out of the recommended age group for this book, but since she loves to read, pretty much anything she gets her hands on, I knew that she would enjoy this book as well.  


If your child is on the younger end of the scale, this would be a good read together book with their Grandma (or Mom, Dad, etc). Our kiddo loved the book, besides telling me that she does, the fact that she has now read it just about every night before bed, lets us know that she really does.  We loved the story line.  Easy for younger kids to understand and they can put themselves in the story and relate to it because these are probably activities that they have done themselves.  

I think that the highlight of receiving this book for me, was on Christmas morning.  My husband's mother came over and the kiddo told her that she had something to read to her, with a "this is what you and I do when I come to visit."  She then proceeded to read the story to her Grandma, who was just about in tears when she was done.  Was a very touching moment between the two of them. 

The story line is fun and heartwarming.  

Then, you need to check out the illustrations.  They are colorful, expressive and jump right off the page. They show the love between the Grandma and the child as well as all the fun things that they do together.  Of course, at the end, though they have had a ton of fun, it is nice to go back home to Mom. 


In closing, we truly do believe that you would love this book.  This would be a perfect present to have your child give to that special Grandma in their lives.  

Happy reading!!!
