New in Town: Cinematic Gold
If you want to see a film of the highest order, a film that will make you re-examine your life, then look no further than New In Town, the recently released Renee Zellweger romantic comedy.
I had the honor of watching this movie Sunday night, and let me tell you, never have I been so affected by a motion picture. It's funny, heartwarming, thought-provoking, and many, many other things.
In the film, Zellweger's character is a cold and calculating businesswoman who will stop at nothing to move up the corporate ladder, other people's livelihoods and feelings be damned. Well, one day she is sent from her posh Miami office to try and fix a fledgling production plant in the freezing interior of Minnesota. What ensues is a simply delightful story of finding the courage to change, finding love where you least expect it, and also finding tapioca pudding! (wait 'till you see the movie and you will understand why this last reference is so funny!).
Anyway, enough talk - go to wherever movies are shown, buy a ticket for New in Town, and watch New in Town - you will not be disappointed!!!!!!
Oh, and by the way, I expect another Academy Award nomination and win for Zellweger, not to mention nominations and wins in every other category (except for animated short, although actually, this movie is so good it should be nominated in this category as well!).
