Love Everlasting

About the movie: Bridger Jenkins, a senior in high school, is an outsider with hidden scars and a lifelong dream to see the ocean. Living in poverty, his mother has done everything in her power to give her son a good life, but their world is once again turned upside down when Bridger's abusive stepfather threatens their lives. On the road with only 197 dollars to their name, Bridger and his mother embark on the journey of a lifetime. But a series of obstacles foil their plan and they end up stuck in the middle of nowhere - a small town that will prove to change their destiny. When Bridger has a chance encounter with a brown-eyed beauty shrouded in insecurity, sparks fly and an everlasting bond is ignited between two misfits longing for acceptance and true love. 







My review: I got to do the coolest thing last night, I got to go to a movie premier. You 
know...red carpet, limo, stars, people all dressed up, so awesome. And then, the coolest part - I got to meet and talk one on one with the star of the show, Lucky Blue Smith. I was amazed by how down to earth and kind he was. He was even a little bit goofy, just like the boy next door, not like the supermodel/actor/musician that you would think that he'd be. It was fun to hear him talk about his family and the goals that they set and how they keep the goals on the wall so they see them and think about them every day. He was
really such an amazing young man.

And then, the main event, the movie. I really enjoyed it. I liked the way Lucky, or Bridger was, he really seemed just how he was when I met him in real life. A little goofy, flawed, kind and thoughtful. I liked the way he was concerned about his mom, she was with a man who was not kind to either of them. It was really fun to watch the two of them together, they really did seem as though they could be mother and son in the show. 

And then there's Clover. At first she's a bit hard to get a read on, she's too busy pushing everyone away to tell how she is. But then she has her dream and you understand just a little bit why she's the way she is. I loved the way she ends up looking out for Bridger and pushing back against the bullies she's dealing with at school.

There's a whole great cast of characters in this one. There's Clover's dad, Mr. Williams the shop teacher, and Clover's friends. Clover's friends are hilarious, especially the red headed one, I can't remember his name right now. But he just knows that Clover's meant to marry him and he's kind of awkward in a really funny way. 

This is a great movie, I really enjoyed watching it. And guess what, it opens in theaters today. Make sure you take time to go check it out!
