Watch | Read | Listen {April 2014}

Last month, I saw Divergent, The Grand Budapest Hotel, and Mr. Peabody and Sherman, and all were absolutely wonderful. Divergent was just as I imagined when I read the book, plus it was fast-paced and emotional. The only word I would use to describe The Grand Budapest Hotel is delightful. It was funny and charming and I already want to watch it again. I saw Mr. Peabody and Sherman with my 9-year-old sister with a giant bucket of popcorn, and I really enjoyed it. It was funny and cute and pretty smart for a kid's movie.

P.S. -- I'm a part of Chels & The City's Annual Fashion Week this year!

MOVIES

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America (Chris Evans) is living in Washington, D.C. and adjusting to the modern world when S.H.I.E.L.D. comes under attack. Captain America joins forces with the Black Widow (Scalett Johansson) to expose a conspiracy and fight off a terrible enemy -- the Winter Soldier. (April 4)

Hank and Asha
This romantic comedy is about Asha (Mahira Kakkar), an Indian woman studying in Prague, and Hank (Andrew Pastides), a New Yorker, who begin talking through video letters. They're two people who are looking for a connection, but when their relationship deepens they have to decide whether to meet face to face. Watch the trailer. I love rom-coms and this one looks wonderful!(April 11)

Transcendence
Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp) is the foremost researcher of Artificial Intelligence who is working to create a sentient machine that combines the intelligence of everything with human emotion. After Dr. Caster uploads his own subconscious, his thirst for knowledge evolves into a quest for power, and it seems like there may be no way to stop him. This movie looks crazy interesting! (April 17)

Authors Anonymous
A group of unpublished writers meet every week to discuss their writing, but when one of their own, Hannah (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting), gets an agent and becomes an overnight success tensions begin to rise. As her career takes off, the others in the group struggle to find their own path to success. Watch the trailer. As a writer, this is spot-on and hilarious! (April 18)

Belle 
Inspired by a true story, Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), is the illegitimate daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral, who is raised by her great-uncle Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) and his wife (Emily Watson). Dido's lineage allows her certain privilages, but the color of her skin prevents her from fully immersing herself into society. Watch the trailer. (April 25)

  1. THANK YOU for sharing about Authors Anonymous! It looks hilarious and as an aspiring author it definitely seems relatable too.

  2. I really want to see Captain America and Belle. As for Authors Anonymous, I think it's funny that to make Chris Klein and Kaley Cuoco seem smart enough to be authors they just threw glasses on them. At least, that's what it seems like to me. It does sound cute though.
