Rachel McAdams (ok, she may be a little “hot” to play me, but I’ve been told we bear
amazing some similarities, so that’s my choice and I’m sticking to it) stars in the comedrama Choices as Sara Mason, a highly successful magazine editor who leaves her career behind to stay at home with her two children. The film follows the harmlessly deluded (read: scatterbrained) but emotional/passionate stay-at-home mom through her daily life full of typical motherhood laughs and frustrations–potty training, cross-dressing toddlers, preschoolers with attitude, play dates gone wrong, food “fights,” and even anger management. The film uses clever cinemetography to illustrate how her choices completely altered her future and the future those around her–for the better, despite her misplaced desire for “something more.” Also stars: easy-going but supportive husband Topher Grace and mom friends Jenny McCarthy (sorry, Erica, you know I had to!), Keiko Agena and Jessica Alba.
I know it sounds a bit like Ally McBeal but I was thinking more like a modern, more comedic It’s a Wonderful Life or Butterfly Effect, with a little humor but without the creepiness.
This week’s Fun Monday was brought to you by Janet:
Hollywood has come calling. They want to make a movie of your life story!
So here’s what I want to read about: Write the brief synopsis of this film that you might use to pitch this project and cast the principal players. Who would play you? You can either cast or ignore significant others, children and/or pets. This is, after all, YOUR movie about you you YOU! Illustrate as needed with casting photos or filming locations. Your life not interesting enough? Hey, this is Hollywood. Never let the facts get in the way of a good story!
