15 Films of 2015

Here’s a list of my must see films of this year!! (click on the title to see the trailer)! Which ones are you excited to see?

The Last Five Years – features Pitch Perfect alum (and face of Kate Spade) Anna Kendrick as Cathy Hiatt, a struggling actress, and Jeremy Jordan as Jamie Wellerstein. Based on the musical, the two illustrate the struggle of their love affair!

Age of Adaline – Ryan Renyold’s other half (and new mother) Blake Lively stars as Adaline, a young woman born at the turn of the 20th century who becomes ageless after an accident. Of course there is a handsome man (Nashville’s Michiel Huisman) that she meets who is worth losing her immortality.

Cinderella – The classic disney animation film comes to life with Lily James as the new Cinderella.

The Longest Ride – Three words :1. Scott 2. Eastwood 3. Cowboys! (yes that is Clint Eastwood’s son) How could not say no to that? Based on the novel by Nicholas Sparks (swoon) this film follows the lives of a young couple as they intertwine with a much older man as he reflects back on a lost love.

Insurgent – The sequel to the famous Divergent follows Beatrice (Shailene Woodley) as she confronts her inner demons and her fight against a powerful alliance that threatens to tear her society apart.

Pitch Perfect 2 – Does this even need an plot summary…NO! If you don’t know this film then that is your loss!

Clouds of Sils Maria – A veteran actress (Juliette Binoche) comes face-to-face with an uncomfortable reflection of herself (Chloe Grace Moretz) when she agrees to take part in a revival of the play that launched her career 20 years earlier.

Jurassic World – Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park. After ten years of operation and visitor rates declining, a new attraction is created to re-spark visitor’s interest, which backfires horribly! Starring Anna Faris’s better half and Parks & Recreation alum Chris Pratt!

Fantastic Four – Don’t know this film? No worries, watch the 2005 version of it (with Jessica Alba and Chris Evans) that’ll give you an idea of what it is about! Starring Whiplash superstar Miles Teller, and Kate Mara.

Little Accidents – Elizabeth Banks (Effie, as I like to call her) stars in the film following a small town still living in the shadow of a terrible coal mine accident, the disappearance of a teenage boy draws together a surviving miner, the lonely wife of a mine executive, and a local boy in a web of secrets.

EntourageDrive Me Crazy alum and all-around-good-looking-guy Adrian Grenier stars in the film following the series that ended in 2011. Crazy excited to see this, you know there is going to be hundreds of celebrity appearances in this film.

Sand Castles – In rural Indiana, Noah and his family wrestle with the mysterious return of his now mute sister Lauren, who was kidnapped and held captive for over a decade.

Mockingjay Part II (trailer not yet released) – to make it short it is the final film of the Hunger Games franchise. Still curious? You have 9 months to read the book before the film is released!

Trainwreck – Amy Schumer (hilarious comedian and I think everyone’s girl crush) stars alongside SNL alum Bill Hader (Stefan for short) in this (what looks to be a) romantic comedy about a commitment-phobic career woman, that has never thought that monogamy was ever possible, who meets a good guy that may change her mind.

Weekend Movie: And While We Were Here

This weekend we watched And While We Were Here starring Kate Bosworth and Jamie Blackley (hello handsome)! The movie focuses on Jane (Kate Bosworth) and her husband as they head to Naples for her husband’s cellist performance. Jane soon encounters an unexpected romance with a young American. This is truly a beautiful storyline and an amazing film! Luckily, it’s on Netflix so you can snuggle up with some hot chocolate (or coffee) without even leaving your home! Let us know what you think of the film!
