Those of you who have been following my career for a while know that I love a fun night out the town. When its for business, even better! Two birds, one stone. I’m big on multi tasking. Plus, getting all jazzed up for the red carpet is a part of the ‘job’ that I adore. Especially when there is an itneresting film or great networking event at the end of the step and repeat.
I was invited to attend the premier of a new movie called “Waiting for Forever.” I honestly hadn’t heard much about this film but had seen posters around town on bus stops and was intrigued. So I accepted the invitation and got all dolled up for the occasion. I love an opportunity to celebrate artistic endeavours.
This particular film didn’t really move me or grab my attention. Its not your typical romantic comedy and I like that about it, however, its a bit choppy and can’t really decide what it wants to be. Rachel Bilson is cute as a button but regardless of her characters current woes, doesn’t have a whole lot to work with. Tom Sturridge plays the whole Peter Pan syndrome thing well, but I found it very hard to suspend reality and go with the storyline. Tom’s character doesn’t feel like a lovable misfit, he feels like a certifiably crazy person in need of some serious therapy. I’ve got nothing against working out your issues! I think we could all benefit from talking some things out with professionals. Bottom line: all movies can’t be Lars and the Real Girl, though I appreciate a the effort! Let’s face it, The Pit and the Pendulum wasn’t an incredible piece of cinema so who am I to talk. But, I was with my favorite guy and the food at the after party was amazing, so yeah, it was a good night 😉
