There are only three letters to describe my feelings about this movie, “LUV!” It stars Common, Michael Rainey Jr. and Dennis Haysbert. Luv was the ‘Official Selection at the Sundance Film Festival in 2012′ and now i know why.
I’m not a big fan of sharing the plot to the movie because I never want to ruin the experience, but here is what I have to say about the film….
The story took place in the course of about 24 hours and follows Common teaching his nephew how to be a man. The tagline to the film is, “Follow Your Hero. Or Become Your Own Man.”
This movie was all about the acting. The camera focused on the actors face more than anything and less on the Baltimore backdrop. The emotion that each actor gives, especially that of Rainey may have you in tears. By the end you will feel the pain of the little boy.
It is very simple in an Indie Film kind of way. I recommend watching this movie if you are a fan of excellent acting and a great story. As a matter of fact, I don’t remember if it even had any extra sound effects/music. This is a true thespian driven movie and has that independent spirit I’m looking for in a film.
Luv is a must see movie (Available on Netflix)!
Will you watch this film now after seeing the trailer?
We all know that he is a seasoned speaker and this speech has the same expertise you would expect from the leader of the free world. He included humor, politics, a history lesson, encouragement of the students in the audience to be involved in what’s going on in the world and various achievements of those graduates.
Keywords from his speech included: Citizenship, Participation and Perseverance. He even mentioned the Peace Corps (see my blog post about the Peace Corps here).
The speech is a little over 25 minutes and is worth the watch and listen.
What did you think of the president’s speech?
I came across an article recently about being a gracious guest blogger. Usually I would have just read the article and kept moving, but I have been considering opening my blog up to guest bloggers.
I’ve written a couple of guest blog post and I read blogs that feature guest bloggers. To have a guest blogger on my site would be great because it would allow for more creativity and a different voice.
For this blog I try to keep it organized with categories, so as I begin to invite guest bloggers to write a post it is important for them to fit in one of the current categories. If all goes accordingly, the guest blogger could potentially get their own series on my blog.

As a person living and breathing public relations this show instantly caught my eye and to have Kerry Washington (one of my favorite actresses) as the lead was a big help in getting me to tune in to the first episode. Let’s just say I’ve been hooked ever since (I’m a Gladiator!).
This show for me is very entertaining. It has romance, suspense, humor, drama, twist-and-turns and unbelievable moments. Not to mention the acting and story lines are on another level for a television series.
Since I’m so interested in public relations, the show teaches me how to handle a crisis. It also introduced me to Judy Smith (I’ll be reading her book soon). As I continue to navigate in my career having my own PR firm is sounding more and more like a winner.
The Season Two Finale airs tonight on ABC (check your local listing for times). In the meantime check out the trailer for the episode.

Last week I came across an article about a new Venus and Serena Documentary that is being released in limited theaters around the country beginning on May 10 and I nearly jumped out of my seat. I’m a huge Venus and Serena Williams fan, I love to play, and watch tennis and everyone knows I love a good Independent Film or Documentary. This is perfect!
The documentary tells of the William sisters journey to tennis fame and what life is like for the two sister now.From the trailer it also gets the sister point of view of their future careers in tennis.
You have to watch the trailer and check this list to see if it will be showing at a theater near you. I Checked and luckily enough it will be!
I’m very excited about this documentary and can’t wait to sit in a theater and fall in love with Venus and Serena all over again.
Will you go and see this documentary?
