30 Day Film Challenge/Day 23

Today the challenge is a film that means a lot to you personally.

When my sister B.J. was alive we read books ‘together’ remotely. We would read a few chapters then chat about the book. We were drawn to books about the area and culture in which we were raised.

One of our favorite books was “Wish You Well” a drastic genre departure for author David Baldacci, but a semi-autobiographical book based on the area in Virginia where his ancestors lived.

When the book was made into a movie, we both bought a copy, but she passed away before she was able to watch it.

It will always be a sentimental favorite of mine.


I decided to take on this challenge for July after reading about it from SandmanJazz. Check out his blog and his entry for the twenty-third day of the challenge. Maybe even join in!

  1. I haven’t seen your choice, and can imagine how it is painful for you to think about that now.
    My own selection is a British film that is also semi-autobiographical, based on the youth of acclaimed director John Boorman. Set in London during the WW2 bombings of that city, it shows a life much like the one I led not many years later. Familiar streets, still bomb-damaged, and the relationships of children playing outside all day in the wreckage that was still there when I played in it.

    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I can see why that film is so close to you.
    Mine is the first Harry Potter. We daycared some of our grandkids and I read that book to them, reading it about three times I think as they grew old enough to enjoy it.
    I often look out in the field and imagine one or two of them getting off the bus and running to hear more Harry Potter. The movie is very dear to me because it reminds me of those days.

  3. I’m sorry you lost your sister and didn’t get to talk about the movie together. Maybe she was looking over your shoulder from above when you watched it. The trailer really interested me, so I hope to see it some day.
