I’m sorry I watched this in 2015, rather than 2016, because now it has to wait an entire year to appear on my “best of” movies. Bre Larson continues on her fabulous streak* and Jacob Trembly manages his role as a kid marvelously. I’d heard that the middle was harrowing, but man, even with the warning, I had no idea.
Cost: $4.00 (although I think the woman gave me the wrong change so I only paid $3.00)
Where watched: Laurelhurst.
*Short Term 12? Have you not watched it yet?

I really dislike this poster.

I actually tried reading the book some years back. All I remember was the beginning was very vague and it seems to be going down a depressing road so I stopped reading. Now I’m hesitant to pick it up again because I’m not sure if I want to read such a heavy book!
I’m not 100% sure what it’s about, but I have a good idea and based on that idea, the poster seems very misleading. Everyone I know who read the book loved it, but I never got around to it. Brie Larson is one of those actors who quite suddenly just seems to be in everything I watch.
I also did not get around to reading the book, but heard it was amazing.
