Watch | Read | Listen {September 2016}

I'm so happy it's September because that means fall is coming! AND it means Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is hitting theaters! I've been dying to see this movie for months, ever since glimpsing the teaser trailer. I can tell they've made several changes to it (one of which is very obvious character change), but I'm still looking forward to it. 

As far as books, I want to read every single one I've listed below. *grabby hands*


The Light Between Oceans
Based on a novel, Tom Sherbourne (Michael Fassbender), a lighthouse keeper and war veteran, and his wife Isabel (Alicia Vikander) are living off the coast in post-World War I Western Australia. One day, the couple rescue a baby girl on an adrift rowboat and decide to informally adopt her as their own. But Tom and Isabel discover the consequences of raising the child when an encounter with a particular woman (Rachel Weisz) threatens to break apart their blissfully happy family. {Watch the trailer(September 2)

On January 15, 2009, pilots Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger (Tom Hanks) depart from LaGuardia Airport and take off. Barely three minutes into the flight, disaster strikes. Without engine power and no airport within range, Sully is forced to land his ill-fated airliner in the frigid waters of the Hudson River. He is dubbed a hero by the press for his actions. But afterward, Sully's life is invaded by reporters and investigators who force Sully to put his job, family and reputation on the line. {Watch the trailer} This was everywhere on the news (especially since I live 20 minutes from the Hudson), and Tom Hanks is a great actor. (September 9)

Mr. Church 
Charlotte (Britt Robertson) lives with her single mother Marie (Natascha McElhone). One day, a stranger named Mr. Church (Eddie Murphy) comes to cook for the family. Charlie doesn’t like this mysterious man, but Marie finds out he was hired by Marie's deceased ex-lover to take care of her for six months because she has breast cancer and only has six months to live. {Watch the trailerYou know a movie is going to be good when the trailer makes you tear up. (September 16)

The Dressmaker 
In 1926 in the Australian outback, schoolboy Stewart Pettyman dies in unknown circumstances. The only witness to his death, schoolgirl Myrtle Dunnage, is branded a murderer and exiled from town. 25 years later in 1951, Myrtle, now an accomplished dressmaker and going by the name Tilly (Kate Winslet), returns to her hometown to take care of her ill mother Molly. Also starring Hugo Weaving, Liam Hemsworth, and Judy Davis. {Watch the trailer} I heard this called a "revenge comedy-drama," and that sounds fantastic to me. (September 23)

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
When his grandfather mysteriously dies, 16-year-old Jacob Portman (Asa Butterfield) travels and discovers "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children", run by the mysterious Miss Peregrine (Eva Green). However, he is chosen to protect the Peculiar Children as an evil band of forces is intent on killing them, know as the "Hollows" and "Wights", led by the mysterious Mr. Barron. {Watch the trailer} SO. FREAKING. EXCITED. (September 30)
