A few nights ago I went to see Stuck in Love not knowing quite what to expect, just that the film had been running empty all week… and… it was great, I loved it. It was funny and touching and full of literary references and great music and wonderful first lines.
The film revolves around the Borgens family and the people in their lives.
William Borgens is an acclaimed author who would love nothing more than for his children to write and his wife to come home.
Erica his estranged wife wants to reconnect with Samantha, their college attending, ‘book being published’, ‘determined to avoid love’ daughter who hates her for cheating.
Of course, Samantha (played perfectly by that girl from The Mortal Instruments movie) ends up meeting Lou…
Meanwhile Rusty, their son, is on a quest to gain ‘life experiences’ so he can improve his writing and falls for the beautiful, but troubled Kate.
One guess what Rusty thinks ‘life experiences’ is code for…
So if you like well written witty drama/comedy with side helpings of exceptional acting, romance, irony, life choices and STUFF, this is the perfect choice of movie.
Recommended for girls nights!
