There are a lot of great movies coming out late this summer and into fall!
Going to the movies is a fun thing the kids and I love to do together. A big container of popcorn, cushy seats, a family-friendly movie, and we are in hog heaven! I thought you might like to know about a few "moving picture shows" that are coming our way soon and extending into the holidays...
Same Kind Of Different as Me | October 20th
Same Kind of Different As Me is adapted from another bestselling true story of the same name from Thomas Nelson Publishers. You can buy the book HERE if you'd like to read it before the movie comes out. An international art dealer, Ron Hall (Greg Kinnear) finds himself befriending dangerous homeless man because of dreams his wife (Renee Zellweger) has been having. Her dreams of the homeless man lead all three on the most remarkable journey. Jon Voight plays Hall's father, with whom he reconciles due to the revelations his journey awakened him to.
A film where faith and hope intersect plus wonderful music from Brad Paisley. Don't miss it!
WONDER | November 17th
The inspiring and incredibly heartwarming story of August Pullman, a boy with facial differences who enters a main-stream elementary school for the first time in 5th grade. Academy Award winner Julia Roberts stars as Auggie's mother and Owen Wilson as his dad. Wonder is based on the New York Times bestseller.
Auggie teaches the world how to see a person’s inside instead of looking at only the outside. Wonder is a movie for the entire family.
