What She Left Behind book review

What She Left Behind
Paperback | Kindle | Audiobook
By Ellen Marie Wiseman
Publisher: Kensington
Release Date: December 31, 2013

Ellen Marie Wiseman is a bestselling author whose 2nd novel, What She Left Behind, was published in 2013, and remained on Amazon’s top 200 list for years. I just formed a book club with some of my neighbors, and our 1st pick for the month of August was Wiseman’s story of two young women, one from the 1920s and one from the 1990s, who become connected when modern Izzy finds the diary of Clara in an old suitcase left in a shuttered asylum. While Izzy contends with the horrors of high school, coupled with a very troubled past, she feels compelled to follow Clara’s story, who was forced into a mental institution by her father because she refused to marry a man chosen for her. After all, she was already in love.

Crazy Rich Asians header

Crazy Rich Asians
Director: Jon M. Chu
Writer: Adele Lim, Peter Chiarelli
Cast: Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Gemma Chan, Awkwafina, Kris Aquino, Lisa Lu, Ken Jeong, Michelle Yeoh
Distributor: Warner Bros.
Rated PG-13 | Minutes: 121
Release Date: August 15, 2018

Romantic comedies may be a dime a dozen, but every once in a while there comes one that can change the course of cinema. And in the age of having more representation on the big screen, no film is more important than Crazy Rich Asians. Director Jon M. Chu‘s adaptation of the Kevin Kwan novel of the same name represents that shift. It’s a film that changes the genre by looking at it from a different perspective, one that has been largely ignored for almost an entire generation.

And because of that, Crazy Rich Asians is not only a special film but one that is also highly entertaining and enlightening. Check out my full review below.

Prodigy (2018) Film Still 03

Back in March, Prodigy, an indie psychological horror film from the writer/director team of Alex Haughey and Brian Vidal, was released On Demand. The film is a contained thriller starring Richard Neil as a psychologist brought in to interview a young girl in a military bunker inside an interrogation room. We don’t know much about her, but she’s in a straightjacket. Savannah Liles delivers an amazing performance, especially for a young actress, and the film is subtle, yet tension filled. After outperforming their projections on Amazon, Prodigy was picked up by Netflix and will begin streaming on their service on August 22, 2018.

Taraji P. Henson in What Men Want from Paramount Pictures and Paramount Players.

Remakes simply can’t be helped. So in order to help a remake from feeling repetitious, it’s going to have to offer an interesting twist in order to keep things fresh. In the case of What Men Want, a re-imagining of the Mel Gibson-starring comedy vehicle What Women Want, we see Taraji P. Henson take the lead as a woman with the ability to hear men’s most inner thoughts.

An official trailer for the film has been released by Paramount, and you can check it out below.
