Last night was movie night. It was a last minute decision to get together. Over the summer it has been hard to coordinate everyone's schedule, so this was a nice surprise.
It was Dianne's pick and she chose to see Charlie St. Cloud. Now, to be totally honest, I am not sure if she was really interested in seeing the actual movie, or Zac Efron! I was game either way, so I worked until 6pm and then dashed over to the Galaxy!
Here is the plot......Charlie St. Cloud is a young man overcome by grief at the death of his younger brother. So much so that he takes a job as caretaker of the cemetery in which his brother is buried. Charlie has a special lasting bond with his brother though, as he can see him. Charlie meets up with his brother (Sam) each night to play catch and talk. Then, a girl comes into Charlie's life and he must choose between keeping a promise he made to Sam, or going after the girl he loves.
Here is the trailer.....
I highly recommend you go and see it. The content is a bit young (heck, we were the only group of girls that were 40+ in the theater) but the story is amazing. In my research of this movie, I found out that there is a book!!!!!!! Yes, I know what you are thinking.......I don't read! But I do read, and I think I will be searching for this book to add to my collection.
After the movie we went to Williams to chat for a bit (this was the first time we did this and I hope it will be a regular part of our night out). We laughed so hard sometimes that I am sure the others in the building were wishing they were at our table.
It was a perfect night out with a very special group of my friends! Thanks ladies. I am adding a few extra photos of the star of the movie at the end of this post.......these are for Dianne! I have to make sure she keeps coming back to check my blog.......even if I don't post everyday!
