It’s a WRAP! 🎬 My first FILM: “Fatal Perfection”! I took a chance and applied for an audition. A few days later, I was shooting the film with all these insanely talented pros! Was I nervous? Hell YES! I’m a singer, but I knew this is where I needed to be next, so I dug deep. Once in a while I would sneak at peek at the monitors as we were filming and what I saw was simply “WOW” - imagine a beautiful painting and a great book coming to life, TOGETHER! It was so moving and gorgeous and all the vision of our award-winning director/writer, @pateronis. Can’t wait to share with you the rest of this story as the film goes to post production - and beyond! As for me, you guessed it, I caught the acting bug! From the recording studio, to the stage - to the movies! Follow your heart, dream big, face your fears head on because that’s where life really happens - on the edge of fear! ✨🎥✨
This week’s #moviemagic Monday goes out to ‘Misery’...
“SLIPPED AWAY! SLIPPED AWAY? SHE DIDN'T JUST SLIP AWAY! YOU DID IT! YOU DID IT! YOU DID IT! YOU MURDERED MY MISERY!” #chills#scarsthefilm#inspiration what’s your favorite quote?
I just watched David Lowery’s “The Old Man and the Gun” and this is about as easy going of a movie as it gets. Lowery wrote and directed 2017’s “Ghost Story” and has been establishing his style as a slow contemplative Director. His movies seem to move along like a stroll through the park, slow and easy and leave his audience with a feeling of comfort.
Robert Redford plays Forrest Tucker a bank robber who lives the lifestyle purely because that is just what he loves to do. He strolls into the bank, takes his time, is very polite and cordial let’s the manager know this is a robbery, puts them at ease, gets whatever money is easily accessible, smiles, thanks them for their time and then just strolls out the front door. Redford’s easy charm is perfect for the role. He has an old school sense of class and this film is just his style.
Casey Affleck plays Redford’s counterpart, Robbery Detective John Hunt, who seemingly is disappointed with his role in the world and sees his job as pointless routine. It is in his pursuit of Tucker that joy renters his life and he begins to enjoy his part in this game of cops and robbers.
I did enjoy this film but I happened to be in the right mood for it. I had a lazy afternoon and of course decided to spend it at the movies. Coming off of seeing “Halloween” and “Venom” this movie fit where my day was at. I didn’t want thrills and chills, I just wanted to eat some popcorn and enjoy an easy story and that is exactly what I got. I left the theater and had a nice long walk home and thought about the message of this movie and realized “he isn’t talking about making a living, he’s just talking about living.” .
Will we see you at the “Delinquent” film screening? The award-winning feature film will show Monday, October, 29 at 7 pm in Breslin Hall Room 211 on Hofstra’s campus. A Q&A with writer/director Kieran Valla will follow the screening! Link to Facebook event in bio.

Halona Beach Cove is one of my favorite spots on Oahu. After a short climb down the rocks from the main road, this beach feels like being in another world. It’s nickname is Eternity Beach, because this is where the infamous scene in From Here To Eternity was filmed with Deborah Kerr & Burt Lancaster kissing in the surf. Jurassic World 2, Pirates of the Caribbean 4, 50 First Dates & Nicki Minaj’s “Starships” music video also feature this spot! 🎥🎞
Around the corner is the Halona Blowhole, made from volcanic rock formations that surround the cove. The current can be strong, but when it’s calm, it’s a great place for a swim (especially if you luck out and can avoid the tourists) 🌊☀️🌋
