The Age of Adaline

After miraculously remaining 29 years old for almost eight decades, Adaline Bowman (Blake Lively) has lived a solitary existence, never allowing herself to get close to anyone who might reveal her secret. But a chance encounter with charismatic philanthropist Ellis Jones (Michiel Huisman) reignites her passion for life and romance. When a weekend with his parents (Harrison Ford and Kathy Baker) threatens to uncover the truth, Adaline makes a decision that will change her life forever. (C) Lionsgate

Check out Scott’s review here!

Steve’s Take

Scott was able to get to the screening for this one, but I was not. This one seems worthy of my time this week.

Homeland: The Complete Fourth Season

Season 4 of the spy drama begins with Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) working as the CIA Chief of Station in Kabul, Afghanistan, where she receives an urgent intelligence report from her counterpart in Islamabad on the whereabouts of terrorist Haissam Haqqani (Numan Acar) in Pakistan. Carrie orders an assault against him, but her actions result in the deaths of 40 civilians attending a wedding at the same location. Consequently, CIA director Andrew Lockhart (Tracy Letts) recalls her back to the U.S. However, a major scandal casts shadows over Lockhart’s actions. Meanwhile, Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin) struggles to adjust to life in the private sector; and Carrie learns that Haqqani may have survived the initial attack, which could lead to deadly consequences for everyone involved.

Scott’s Take

While season four of Homeland wasn’t on par with the previous three seasons, it was still pretty damn entertaining. It sets everything up nicely for season five. Fantastic show.

Steve’s Take

Now is the time to catch up if you’ve fallen behind. Make it happen.
