Home Again hits theaters this Friday, September 8th. In celebration of the new film, I headed to the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills to a screen the new movie, and enjoy a lovely cocktail hour with actress Reese Witherspoon.
“Starting over is not for beginners.” Life can be unpredictable and complicated. Home Again is about taking chances in love, family, and friendship.
Thank you Open Road Films for inviting me to screen Home Again. All opinions are my own.
About The Film
In Home Again, Reese Witherspoon stars as Alice Kinney a woman who is recently separated from her husband (Michael Sheen). In this modern romantic comedy, Alice decides to start her life over by moving back to Los Angeles with her two young daughters. On her 40th birthday, Alice meets young aspiring filmmakers who happen to need to a place to live. Alice agrees to let the guys stay in her guest quarters temporarily, but the arrangement takes an unexpected turn of events.
I often laughed and cried during the screening. Alice is pulled in several directions and must make decisions that could change her life path. Alice’s unlikely new family and new romance comes to a crashing halt when her ex-husband shows up with suitcase in hand. This film is heartwarming and relatable.
Reese Witherspoon’s bright smile lit up the room when she arrived to the cocktail party. She is simply stunning in person.
I asked her what advice she had for working moms, and how to balance their lives and careers?
Reese said, “Well I think it’s really important that you always focus on the kids. But it’s important that the mom feels good, then the kids feel good. And I think that’s what this movie is about, making those choices in your life.”
Go see Home Again in theaters with your besties this Friday, September 8th. Cheers!
