Storm Boy – In Theaters Now

Sorry for my hiatus y’all – As most of you know I am heavily pregnant with twins and they’ve been threatening to come for weeks now so I haven’t been on my blog / social media accounts as much as I’m trying to soak in as much family time as I can before a huge change in our dynamic (But it’ll be worth it and I cannot wait to see their little faces!)

With that being said I’ve got a LOT of content coming at y’all this weekend, but I wanted to start with one that I’ve been really wanting to write about. A movie that came out in theaters two weeks ago that was so deeply heartwarming I have to share about it.

Storm Boy, the movie based on a classic Australian novel has been so beautifully remastered and came to life on screen April 5th, 2019. Storm Boy‘ has grown up to be Michael Kingley, a successful retired businessman and grandfather. When Kingley starts to see images from his past that he can’t explain, he is forced to remember his long-forgotten childhood, growing up on an isolated coastline with his father. He recounts to his grand-daughter the story of how, as a boy, he rescued and raised an extraordinary orphaned pelican, Mr Percival. Their remarkable adventures and very special bond has a profound effect on all their lives. Based on the beloved book, Storm Boy is a timeless story of an unusual and unconditional friendship.

I am not huge into dramas but I have not stopped thinking about this movie since I’ve seen it. It was powerful, strong and had such an amazing message for families. My Husband and I saw it together and he hasn’t been able to stop talking about it as well – We’re very eager to take our children as it has such a valuable lesson of courage and love that I think everyone could learn from.

I highly recommend it to anyone looking for something to do this weekend, whether it be by themselves, with family or a date night… But don’t forget the tissues!

(I was compensated for this post but genuinely these opinions are my own, it was a truly amazing movie!)
