Theater Thursday


It's Theater Thursday! This week we're taking a look at Chasing Liberty starring Mandy Moore and Matthew Goode. 
The premise of the movie goes as: Anna (Moore) is the President's daughter. The President who is played by Mark Hamill goes on a GA Summit to Prague taking the 1st family along with him. Well Anna, getting ready to embark on her freshman year of college wants to attend Germany's "Love Parade". Obviously, her family doesn't want her to attend and is forbidding her to go. 

In an attempt to coax her into a better mood they agree to let her go out on the town for the evening with the daughter of the French president. Chaos ensues and Anna manages to escape and meet a mysterious man named Ben (Goode). 

Ben tags along the way with Anna as she tries to make her way to Germany's parade. Trust me....many things happen along the way, some comical and some heart aching. 

I really love this movie because it's a romantic comedy with a great back drop. They travel through Europe and into England. It's also about finding true love and people's willingness and how far they'll go to obtain it. Everytime I watch this movie I always find myself saying, "I want someone to make the grand gesture for me."

In an added bonus, Jeremy Piven is in this movie. He plays one of Anna's 2 main bodyguards who has to spend his days chasing her around Europe. Check it out! I think you'll enjoy it!

Ohhh, I love this movie! Anything Mandy Moore is in, I fall in love with. I agree though, the backdrop of the movie is phenomenal and of course I would love someone to make a gesture like that for me! ;)

Agreed. I did like this one. I had forgotten Piven was in it. Ever since Walk to Remember, Mandy Moore stole my heart with her movies!
