We are a few short days away from March, and March happens to be my birth month. In an effort to redeem a lifetime of hard birthdays, I am planning to celebrate, in small ways, all month long. Even though it isn’t March yet, this post contains giveaway for one of my VERY FAVORITE THINGS, and it runs THROUGH March 4th!
The majority of us find ourselves drawn to redemption stories. As we scroll social media, the rare posts about people who have overcome really hard things, and changed their lives, seem to draw us in… We LOVE a good comeback story.
Maybe this is because we both relate and aspire for our own version of one. No one knows our own, personal hardships more than we do. No one will ever be as invested in our efforts, our successes and our failures, than us. We understand how crushing lows can feel, and we hope that our life will see those moments turned around for greatness.
We love these stories because they give us hope.
I am partnering with Grace Hill Media to promote the Warner Bros. film The Way Back, starring Ben Affleck. This inspirational film is a real and raw portrayal of how hope is found in second chances.
In this heartwarming story of redemption, Jack Cunningham (portrayed by Ben Affleck) is struggling with addiction when a priest offers him a coaching position at his former high school. He reluctantly agrees to accept the job and ends up finding a glimmer of hope for the future and shot at a second chance. The Way Back is an honest representation of how we all struggle and face set-backs in life, and emphasizes that the way back is never too far away.
In case you haven’t seen it, here is The Way Back trailer. (You can also follow it via their website, Facebook, Instagram: @thewayback, Twitter: @TheWayBackMovie)
The film opens March 6th, 2020 Nationwide

No way out and no way back
and all the ways are shut.
Monsters in their bold attack
are really kicking butt.
No way up and no way down,
can’t retreat and can’t ascend,
and if I let go I will drown
in the rapids’ gyre and bend.
No way to reach bright yesterday,
no time machine awaits
to help me to kind future days,
and now attends my fate
to die upon the here and now,
but at the end, knee will not bow.
You never disappoint, my friend…
This movie looks really good. I typically love PG-13 action and romantic comedies, but I’m always in for a good underdog story.
I immediately thought of you actually, when I saw they’d given it R. Underdog stories are so hope building!
I’m a huge fan of a great comedy.
Me too… But man, I am super picky about comedy types!
I love movies with “good” endings. There is nothing worse than sitting through a movie and the movie ends with a story line that isn’t wrapped up properly. If I’m honest with myself, I just like happy endings! I love romantic comedies and dramas…as long as they have a good ending! :)
I love this about you!
I love feel good movies. My two favorite movies right now are “Yesterday” and “Sully”
I loved Yesterday! I’ve never seen Sully.
I love redemption stories! Especially with a romantic subplot 😆
I’m not sure if this is a type of movie, but I’m attracted to a good “dog” movie.
I also love a good dog movie… All the tears, every time!
Ahhh! How can I choose just one?!
One of my favorites: Mulan Rouge—beautiful allegory of Love
One of my forever faves… and always makes me think of you!
I love comedies and romantic comedies… some serious are okay, but I have to be in the right mood! ☺️
Because your life is so heavy, all day every day, it’s a nice and light hearted distraction!
I love BA and can’t wait to see this movie! It has been eons since you had a movie giveaway and I’m STOKED!
I know you do! I had a hankering to watch Forces of Nature the other day, and totally made me miss you!
My favorite movies are always musicals! Must have singing and dancing and love!
I LOVE a good musical!
