Ok, so occasionally I watch a "chick flick" that just totally melts my heart. I love a good romance story. Generally when I watch anything on Netflix I go straight to the Romance category. Every once in awhile I watch one that just absolutely sucks me in because it's just SO romantic! Ones that come to mind off the top of my head are of course the Twilight series. Incredibly romantic and I'm a little obsessed (it's waned a little but I still love it!) and then awhile back it was that movie Beastly. Although I'll admit the acting was a little rough in that movie but I still thought it was an incredible sweet love story and the main dude was super good looking.
Yesterday I got a little bored at one point and since I was feeling a little lazy yesterday I decided to watch a movie. Nothing really sounded good, I started one of those old romance movies that is set back in Victorian days but it was icky and I made it through half of it and cut it off. Then I saw the movie Keith. My little sister, D, told me about it a long time ago and gushed about how sweet it was and I had to watch it but I kinda forgot about it and never took the time to watch it. Especially cause it's an indie film and sometimes those are full of bad backdrops and bad acting and cheesy script. But I'd figure I'd give it a go.......
And now, I'm totally obsessed!!! I watched it twice yesterday. Yup, twice.
Here's the official movie summary:
Natalie has it all: yearbook editor, scholarship to college, star athlete, reigning social queen. Then Keith enters her life. Secretive and enigmatic, he slowly lures her from her comfort zone. The more Keith holds back, the more Natalie becomes intrigued with figuring him out. In her head, she's determined to keep him at arm's length, but in her heart she can't resist him. As Natalie's world slowly unravels, both their lives are changed forever in this powerful love story.
Let me just say first of all the acting was superb! I was expecting Jesse McCartney to be as cheesy an actor as he is a singer but I think he missed his calling because he was an amazing actor is this morning. The the "leading lady" Elisabeth Harnois was just as good.
The script was so believable and didn't feel forced or rehearsed in any way.
And the story itself is just so sweet. I may have even got a little choked up at one point.
It's seriously one of the best indie films I've ever seen!
A must watch if you love romance movies.
And for your viewing pleasure here's the trailer - the quality is a little crappy but you get the idea!
