The Return of Marvel’s Jessica Jones

The first season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones launched on Netflix in November 2015 to enthusiastic support from audiences and critically acclaim, ultimately taking home a prestigious Peabody Award recognizing the show’s achievement in television entertainment.

Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb remembers, “We knew that we had something very special, not just in the writing from Melissa Rosenberg, but also in the performance by Krysten Ritter. We had hoped that it was a story that was going to resonate first with the Marvel audience, but secondly with a much larger audience. We were delighted to see how many people responded to the material and responded to it in a way that in some ways exceeded their expectations of the genre. Certainly the subject matter and the timing are something that you can never really have any control over, but it was the right show at the right time. One of the reasons that we’re so excited about season two is that it delves deeper into issues that make a difference to our audience and really connect to women in particular. That’s very important to Marvel and to Jessica Jones.”

 

Movie Review: Me Before You #LiveBoldly

IMG_4483

Directed By: Thea Sharrock

Written By: Jojo Moyes

Starring: Sam Claflin, Emilia Clarke, Vanessa Kirby, Matthew Lewis, Jenna Coleman, Janet McTeer, Charles Dance, Stephen Peacocke, Ben Lloyd-Hughes

SYNOPSIS: A wealthy London man’s life is turned upside down when he is paralyzed in a car accident. When a young woman from a small town is hired to be his caregiver, the two form an unlikely bond.

 

Anyone who has seen the trailer for ‘Me Before You’ knows they’ll need tissues when they actually see the movie.  If you think you’re the exception…think again!  Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) and Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games) shine in this beautifully tragic love story from beginning to end.  Emilia’s character, Lou, is a quirky, chatty, happy-go-lucky young woman who is searching for a job to help support her family.  Sam’s character, Will, is quite the opposite.  He’s a wealthy, adventurous young businessman who becomes quadriplegic after a tragic accident.  With the help of Nathan, Will’s nurse, and Will’s parents, Lou tries to make Will feel alive again.  The story is beautiful and has so much potential, but I wish there was a bit more.  It starts off a bit slow (not complaining because the content was good) but at some point it just began to feel rushed as far as their relationship goes.  I’m sure the novel fills in those gaps but, in any case, the pacing of the story doesn’t ruin the heartfelt moments in the latter part of the movie.  It also doesn’t discredit the wonderful acting, writing and directing involved with this film.  Claflin and Clarke have great chemistry together!  The pacing issue, in my opinion, happens sometimes when they make films based on novels.  It’s impossible to fit everything in.  Either way,  I would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good love story!
