There are a few movies that I've wanted to see, but have been trying to keep myself from renting. So, I was excited to find them at the library tonight!
The first one I popped in was Hope Springs. I have enjoyed Tommy Lee Jones' films, so I wanted to see it. Here's my review: SKIP IT! I fast forwarded through over half of the movie. I think I watched this 2 hour movie in a total of 15-20 minutes. It was so disappointing. The "counseling" wasn't funny (nor was any of the movie) and it was just redundant. And I realized very quickly that I didn't want to listen to any of the counseling sessions or watch any of the couple's attempts to "fix" their problems.
The second movie I watched (since it took so little time to watch the first) was October Baby. I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed the acting, story, and ending. If you've thought about watching it, I hope you will and that you enjoy it. I had a miscarriage before I had my daughter Autumn, so it hurts my heart deeply to think of someone choosing to abort a child. October Baby is about a young woman who learns that she was the result of a failed abortion attempt. This story is one of a search for identity and healing.
I am so thankful that I didn't rent Hope Springs and waste $4! I am also thankful to have finally watched October Baby.
