I usually save my movie watching for Sunday mornings; fewer people, slightly cheaper movie tickets, and I like to pretend that popcorn, soda, and mozzarella sticks make up a perfectly reasonable brunch menu. But I couldn’t make it around to Sunday to see Beyond the Lights.
I had to see it IMMEDIATELY so dragged my butt to the theater, mid-week, and boy-howdy am I glad I did. I’m probably going to see it again in theaters this week. Here are 5 reasons I think YOU should go see Beyond The Lights too:
1. Pure, concentrated romance.
There is no way to stress this enough, Beyond the Lights is a one hundred percent, by the book romance. All the beats are there; the meet-cute, which happens to be a wee on the traumatic side, the magical first kiss followed by the pretty righteous first sex. You’ve got your troubled heroine looking for a way out.
