What would a lifestyle blog without a movie feature as part of its content be? My answer to that is dull and tasteless. Well today being the first movie review we check out ‘Hope Spring’ and ‘The Campaign’. 

Hope Spring:

Director: David Frankel

Cast: Tommy Lee Jones, Meryl Streep and Steve Carrel.

This is a story of a couple in their 60s who are in a dull relationship which has brought nothing but boredom to Kay (Streep). Married to Arnold (Jones) for 31 years, she sets on a mission to change the relationship around and bring in some fun to keep the fire burning. In this film we see Jones cleverly play a fantastic role and bring life to the character he plays as husband to Kay. ‘Hope Spring’ will be making its debut on the big screen pretty soon.

The Campaign:

Directors: Ole Bornedal and Sam Raimi

Cast: Kyra Sedgwick, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Natasha Calis.

The thriller begins with a prologue in which a woman is trying to open a sealed antique box when she is attacked by an unknown entity. The sealed box is put on a yard sale where new neighbours Stephanie played by Sedgwick and her husband is interested by its design. They then decide to buy the box. Their daughter Em played by Calis says she can hear noises from the inside of the box. Together they learn that the box was a cage in which the soul of a malicious demon, a dybbuk, has been entrapped. If you’re a horror fan you’ll most probably enjoy this film.
