A Simple Favor is about a mommy vlogger named Stephanie Smothers (Anna Kendrick from The Last Five Years and Into the Woods) who meets an eccentric and enigmatic woman named Emily Nelson (Blake Lively from The Shallows and All I See is You). The women’s sons are best pals, so after a couple of martinis, Stephanie and Emily become fast friends, with Stephanie vicariously relishing in the glamorous life of Emily and her author husband, Sean Townsend (Henry Golding from Crazy Rich Asians).
Adapted from James Lapine’s book and with the music of Sondheim, Rob Marshall’s Into the Woods is a great deal of fun to watch.
While it’s a cute and fun movie, it’s not for really young kids; ParaNorman is very dark, fairly scary and totally deserving of its PG rating.
In The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part One, the first installment of what will be the final adaptation of Stephanie Meyer’s hugely popular “Twilight” series of books, Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart) getting married, and in a freak of nature twist having a human-vampire child.
