A bull rider (Scott Eastwood) and a college student (Britt Robertson) fall in love after helping an old man (Alan Alda) at a car accident.  He tells them a tale of love that will change their lives.    “The Longest Ride” Website

My interview with Nicholas Sparks, Scott Eastwood and Britt Robertson

What to Watch For: The film is based on a Nicholas Sparks novel of the same name.

Word on the Street: Britt Robertson is about to be a big star. In addition to this film, she is starring with George Clooney in “Tomorrowland.”

My Take: I have been a big fan of Robertson since she was on the CW show “Life Unexpected.”

Word on the Street: Pegg is on a hot streak, with the upcoming releases of “Mission Impossible” and “Star Trek” franchise films.

My Take: Pegg stars in one of my all-time favorite films, “Shaun of the Dead” (2004).

A teenage girl (Kara Hayward) says she is the victim of a secret network called The Sisterhood of the Night. Accusations run rampant, and the girls of the network, led by Mary (Georgie Henley) refuse to talk about their group. “The Sisterhood of the Night” Website

What to Watch For: The film was one of the featured movies of the Atlanta Film Festival this year.

Word on the Street: The film stars Georgie Henley, who starred in “The Chronicles of Narnia” franchise and Kara Hayward, who delighted everyone with her performance in “Moonrise Kingdom” (2012).

My Take: I had the pleasure of interviewing the director and cast of the film on the  Atlanta Film Festival Red Carpet.   “The Sisterhood of the Night” Red Carpet Interviews
