ST.VINCENT: Film Review

Film poster: source.

I had no idea about the plot line of ST. VINCENT prior to seeing it in the theatre last week, but the cast (and “buzz” about the film) sold me: BILL MURRAY, MELISSA MCCARTHY, NAOMI WATTS, JAEDEN LIEBERHER, CHRIS O’DOWD, and TERRENCE HOWARD. Writer/director THEODORE MELFI‘s movie is touching, funny, and it wasn’t too long (which means a lot in my books).

It is about what transpires when a young boy and his mom move next door to a grumpy old man (who has a heart of gold). The plot line is not ridiculously original, but I think everyone can relate to the desire to love again before all hope is lost, and experiencing companionship with the least likely of people. I recommend seeing it!

So, if you watch the video below I’ll tell you about why I thoroughly enjoyed the film True Adolescents from 2009 starring Mark Duplass of The Mindy Project fame (he’s one of the holistic doctors…fun fact: the other doctor is played by Duplass’ real-life brother, Jay).

Also, I’ll give a bit more info about the writer/director Craig Johnson, who is best known for The Skeleton Twins a soon-to-be indie classic.

I’ll introduce the memoir I’m addicted to reading, Drunk Mom by Jowita Bydlowska. In the second YouTube video I talk more about why I am loving this book and why it helps me stay sober.
