Friday night movie, Saturday morning review!*
Last night’s movie was In a World…. “An underachieving voice coach finds herself competing in the movie trailer voice-over profession against her arrogant father and his protégé.” (from IMDb.com)
I have thought about trying to record audiobooks. I’m not sure I’d be good at it, but hey, I’ve read thousands of books to my students and my kids over the years. When I heard about this movie, I really wanted to see it. In a World… is all about the voice-over world, and how difficult it is for a woman to find her voice in a male dominated field.
I really enjoyed this movie! I thought the characters were cute and quirky, and the plot moved along nicely. The dialogue had a very quick pace with pop references and reminded me of the TV show Gilmore Girls. It was about 90 minutes long, so it kept Ed’s attention. He thought that this movie was definitely a chick flick. I didn’t think so, but he’s probably right.
*Reviews are based on my eclectic taste and are probably old movies recently seen on Netflix or from Redbox since I don’t get out much.
