Cine Beaverhausen: Being Chariie
I think readers already know that Buddy is my nickname but my birth name is Charles. I certainly never had a substance abuse problem of the sort depicted in this film.
The film, shot in Utah, is directed by Rob Reiner. Cary Elwes (who was in Reiner's The Princess Bride) is in this. Always good to see.
Expertly executed and delivered. Being Charlie opens at theaters this Friday. There's nothing like being Charlie, I can tell you from long experience. This film is for anybody who's ever felt alienated or disenfranchised in their youth. Young Nick Robinson is wonderful in the titular role.
I very much recommend this film to everyone seeking a tonic to the juvenile action fare released recently. Beautifully done. Bravo!
Opens in theaters in the USA on Friday.
