A typical night of Netflix often looks like this in our apartment:
Bryan: “Want to watch a movie?”
Charlotte: “Sure! What do we have?”
Bryan starts scrolling.
B: “You won’t like this… Not your kind of movie…”
C: “You’re going too fast! Okay, yea. Not interested. Ner. Keep going…”
I have a hard time committing to a movie. All the classics that people discuss in passing? Never saw ‘em. It’s not that I like to remain blissfully ignorant, it’s just two hours is a lot of time to commit to sitting still. So if I say I’m going to watch something, it best hold my attention for the entire two hours.
We finally landed on a movie called Inconceivable that seemed interesting—about a couple (played by Nicholas Cage and Gina Gershon) struggling with infertility and looking for a surrogate. They invite a woman with a mysterious past (Nicky Wheelan) to move in with them to act as both a nanny and surrogate.
What could possibly go wrong?!?
I wasn’t sure it was the best selection based on our current situation but the description held my attention. The movie is listed as a psychological thriller (my favorite!!); it delivers on fast-paced suspense and plot twists though some of the acting occasionally falls short. I might be biased; I’ve never been a big Nicholas Cage fan (let’s fight about it!), but Gina and Nicky are fantastic. There are a lot of what-the-fuck and don’t-open-that-door moments, and I won’t ruin the ending but I didn’t see it coming.
Have you seen a good movie on Netflix and do you have a hard time agreeing on movies to watch with your significant other? Let me know in the comments!
Happy Monday, party people! Hope everyone has a wonderful week ahead 🙂 XOXO
