'We Were Liars’ written by E. Lockhart (2018)
This young adult novel surrounds a mysterious family who spends all of their summertime on their private island. The main character is Cadence, and for as long as she can remember, she had always gone to this island, Beechwood and enjoyed bonding with her extended family. But, one summer got cut short due to a concussion. Cadence wasn’t sure what had happened, but after this nothing was the same. Her mother wouldn’t let her go back to Beechwood, as she instead had to go on a trip to Europe with her father. Cadence was able to return two summers after the concussion, but found the private island to be very different. To find out what changed in Cadence’s life, check out ‘We Were Liars,’ available online and in store.
‘All Too Well (Taylor’s Version)' Short Film (2021)
Along with the release of her album “Red (Taylor’s Version),” she also released a short film to go with the 10 minute version of the song ‘All Too Well.’ The short film stars Dylan O’Brien (30), and Sadie Sink (19). The two act out the relationship Taylor Swift had with Jake Gyllenhaal, in 2010, when they were respectively 19 and 29 years old. The short film shows their relationship, with Gyllenhaal acting differently towards Swift around certain people, yelling at her, cursing at her and gaslighting her into thinking she was crazy. The film comes to a close with one of the last scenes showing Swift at her 21st birthday party, looking around for Gyllenhaal, who just didn’t show up. No text, no call, nothing. He just ghosted her on her 21st birthday. It’s a really great, quick watch, and is sure to bring out some emotions.
‘Flying’ | Cody Fry (2017)
If you’re looking for a soulful pop, jazzy, electronic, orchestral balladry filled album. Cody Fry’s album ‘Flying’ is meant for you. With familiar songs like ‘I hear a symphony’ and ‘Go’, Fry creates a whole world of emotions while listening to his songs with my favorite being, ‘Before I Met You’. With the orchestral balladry theme to Fry’s songs, it gives off a similar feeling as if you were listening to the background music from a Disney film. Whether you’re on the go walking outside or driving in your car. Throw on some Cody Fry and let his words truly make you feel as if you were flying.
‘Bojack Horseman’ (2014-2020)
When first hearing about Bojack Horseman, an animated Netflix Original show about a famous, anthropomorphic horse with numerous addictions and traumas dealing with his debilitating mental health issues in Hollywood; you might be a bit confused. Some of those things just don’t seem to go together. However, by juxtaposing serious issues with animated talking animals (with a few humans mixed in) the show is able to accurately and effectively show the extent of these serious issues, while still creating an entertaining, captivating show.
