"- I'm actually trying to read less.
- I felt like I wasn't watching enough television. No, I just-I started to feel like reading about life was taking time away from actually living life, so I'm trying to, like, accept invitations to things, say 'hi' to the world a little more.
- That sounds scary. It's going well?
- It's... okay. Most of the time when I'm out, I keep thinking I'd be so much happier in bed with a book, and that makes me feel not super cool."
Jesse is a thirty-some year old guy, but he is not happy. He is invited to the retirement party of one of his dearest professors, Peter Hoberg, and he happily jumps into a car to get back to his beloved college. He was happy there and after meeting a young student by the name of Zibby, he starts to exchange letters with her, talking about books and poems and classes they have already shared. The two fall in love, but Jesse feels he is too old for her and backs away. It is this that makes him realize he needs to grow up - getting back to a safe place isn't always the answer - one needs to move on and find comfort in their new life.
Zac Efron is in it! So if you are a fan of his, check it out :D He has the cutest hat ever! And some of the best lines ever written on paper.
So, here you go. Independent movies should rule the screens as they have shown originality. In the end, all of them is about either suffering or learning to becoming grown ups - but I believe that these movies help others as well, so don't stop! There is a lot more to Josh Radnor then just Ted Mosby - he not only directed but wrote this movie! :)
Until the next item on my list!
