Life does not happen how we expect for it to happen or plan for in our lives. We have all heard that saying "Things Happen for a Reason"! But what is that reason? We do not know the reason or reasons, but what we can see after the fact is that we lived, we survived.
I received a copy of upcoming film Unexpected, which will be in theaters and On Demand July 24th .
Unexpected is a wonderfully touching and warm comedy about the trials and tribulations of becoming a young parent – and it was a hit at both Sundance Film Festival and SXSW Film Festival.
Full synopsis: Samantha Abbott (Cobie Smulders), is a dedicated and passionate teacher at an inner-city Chicago high school. Just as she is coming to terms with her school closing, Samantha faces some life-changing and unexpected news: she is pregnant. After breaking the news to her live-in boyfriend John (Anders Holm, TV’s “Workaholics”) and opinionated mother (Elizabeth McGovern, TV’s “Downton Abbey”), Samantha learns that one of her most promising students, Jasmine (newcomer Gail Bean), has landed in a similar but very different situation. As the women navigate their ambitions for the future, Samantha and Jasmine forge an unlikely friendship that will challenge their perspectives and leave a lasting impact on one another.
