The Girl in the Book (2015)


girl “It’s a room full of people, see, we reached out to you. Tonight you’re here, reaching out to others and then with any luck, those others are gonna reach out on election day and fill in the right bubbles and maybe together we can change the political landscape.” – Emmett Grant

Number of Times Seen – 1 (13 Dec 2015)

Brief Synopsis – An aspiring writer must deal with her troubled past as she tries to find stability in her life.

My Take on it – This was yet another movie that I came across that I knew little about before watching and I was pleasantly surprised.

It definitely has a feeling of being very generic and predictable but it actually gives us great insight into what shapes us as people and how difficult it may be to change who we have become.

The story is told during two time periods of the main character’s life but they filmed the transitions so well that the jumps come across so perfectly.

This isn’t a perfect film, but it is a nice story that tries to help explain how we shape our lives by our actions and also our inactions.

Bottom Line – An interesting movie that although it feels very generic and predictable but is actually a very insightful look at how events in our lives can affect us years later. Liked the smooth transitions between the different time periods. Nice small budget film. Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – A Kickstarter campaign was set up to raise money for post-production, the goal was set at $65,000, the goal was met raising a total of $65,342. Rewards for donating included a behind-the scenes blog, and a coffee table book (From Wikipedia)

Rating – Globe Worthy
