Good morning Wonderfuls! How were your weekends? Things were lovely for me in the city – I was TIFFing it up on Friday and Saturday!
I managed to pick up my movie tickets on Friday, but the mad paddling continued throughout the day! I wanted to make sure that everything was organized and I wasn’t leaving any loose ends behind for my team to handle while I was gone, and I got away from the office a lot later than I wanted to. That led to our very own mini episode of The Amazing Race trying to get to the theatre on time: “ok, we have 10 minutes to get from here to John and and Richmond Street West !!! Go go GO !!!”
Luckily, we made it with minutes to spare! The movie was “The Kids From the Port”. There was a Q and A with the director afterwards, and it was really interesting to get to chat with him about the film and his experiences while shooting it. Not to mention that I got a kiss and my friend got a handshake – bragging rights clearly go to amb! (What?! TIFF is supposed to be about the movies?!?)
Saturday’s movie, though, was the highlight. On Saturday we saw “Can a Song Save Your Life” and I loved it so much that I’m using it for this week’s edition of My Life as a Movie Monday, even though I’m on vacation this week and don’t actually need saving, at least not for the moment. I smiled pretty much from start to finish.
It stars Kiera Knightley and Mark Ruffalo and my beloved Adam Levine, and you guys all need to go see it once it’s released to theatres so we can talk about it, ok?? And when “Lost Stars” is all over the radio and burning up the charts, you can say you heard about it here first!
I am on vacation this week, so there won’t be another post for you until Wednesday. But it’s going to be a good one! We’ve got a special guest posting for us! In the meantime, what’s the last movie that you saw that had you grinning from ear to ear? Tell me all about it in the Comments!
