It's 1969 at a strict English girls' school where charismatic Abbie and intense and troubled Lydia are best friends. After a tragedy occurs at the school, a mysterious fainting epidemic breaks out threatening the stability of all involved.
After being shot, Tom wakes from a coma to discover that fragments of his smart phone have been embedded in his head, and worse, that returning to normal teenage life is impossible because he has developed a strange set of superpowers.
Henry tries to cook with pot by adding buds to a soup. Cooking in this way would make you sick, not high. The THC has to be extracted from the weed (usually by simmering in butter then cooled, which can then be used to cook with). The way Henry uses it, the THC would cook away, and then remaining plant material would be bitter enough to make him sick. See more »
Justin Timberlake composed great music for his wife's Jessica Beal's movie.
It's a fairly good movie staring Tim Hanks wanna be Jason Sudeikis as a man who just lost his wife (Played by Jessica Beal) in a car crash. In order to cope with the lost, he helps a young troubled teenager built a raft.
It does feel like another one of these movies that seems to work as a test flight for Jason Sudeikis, it's about time he got this plane off the ground with more major releases. I think he's there, but I guess the rest of the world is not so sure.
The Book of Love is definitely up his alley as it's a little weird but very charming, and though it's a fun picture, I've seen Sudeikis appear and more solid efforts like Tumbledown.
What stands out mostly in this movie is Justin Timberlake's turn as a film composer. He's been doing this a lot lately with such movies as Trolls (as music supervisor), which makes more sense to a pop music icon like JT, but this movie showed that he was serious about the gig as the score really landed the mood of the whole film.
Jessica Beal had a small but important part in the film that makes you want to know more about the character she's playing. I guess being the producer was good enough over needing a bigger role.
Overall, I say that I did like the film, but Jason Sudeikis has stared in similar films that are better.
