A Movie That Shouldn't Be Missed.... How About You

If you've been reading this blog for a while you know of my fondness for British movies. I can't seem to get enough of them and I love their humor.


Last night I had the great fortune to be searching for something to watch when I stumbled across the most delightful British film called How About You. Ten minutes into the movie I was wondering what I was thinking when I decided to watch it, but I continued and I'm so thrilled that I did.


As it turns out, it's just my kind of movie and had I turned the channel in search of something better I might have missed this deliciously charming movie. It has an outstanding cast of brilliant English actors including Joss Ackland, Vanessa Redgrave, Brenda Fricker and Imelda Staunton (of Harry Potter fame). But, the real star is the young woman who comes to care for this eccentric group of strangers who just happen to all live in the same house, Hayley Atwell. She's an up and coming actress who is sure to rise to fame, so I'll be keeping my eye on her.


This movie will not only give you an insight to aging and the elderly, but to your own aging issues as well. It's a beautifully written story and it's beautifully portrayed by some of the best in the business. It will warm your heart unless your heart is unable to be heated.


It's never too late to learn how to love life and living....

You can see a video teaser to this movie HERE. Trust me when I say you won't be disappointed. Out of 5 stars, I give this movie 3-1/2 stars...
