Do we really know our best friends?

I just watched “A Simple Favor” on Netflix starring Blake Lively, I’ve loved her since Gossip Girl.

Do we really know our friends?

Blake plays the role of a snobbish school mom, Emily, who would make any soccer mom feel they’re not cool enough.

Stephanie is that mom who is always engaged very familiar with the schedules and activities ended up being “friends” or best friends even with Emily through the budding friendship that both their sons had formed and so had play dates together.

Emily and Stephanie had a strange relationship. They’d share secrets over dey Martini and causal banter. Emily’s husband was a struggling writer , both seemed to have it all figured out and the chemistry was there between them. Stephanie had lost her husband in a car accident and haven’t been dating anyone recently.

As mom’s we all need that one friend who understands the vigors of parenting, someone who understands that not all the time you want to “mom”. Stephanie was great, she had her Mommy vlog where she shared tips and tricks that can help other fellow mom’s. She would find her self doing these favours of picking up Emily’s son from school if she’s running late or her husband was out of town.

Things took a turn when one of those favours ended up with Emily missing for days. Of course Stephanie the concerned friend did all she could with trying to figure out what had happened, everything started falling into place and Stephanie is left to wonder. Do I really know this person with whom I’ve shared my deepest darkest secrets with?

I honestly did expect the plot twist. It’s a good watch. I’d give it

7/10.

Until Next time

Overview: A single mother enters a world of twisted mind games when she begins an affair with her psychiatrist boss while secretly befriending his mysterious wife.

If you have been searching for a movie to watch – “Behind Her Eyes” should be on your next watch list; especially for all my mystery and thriller readers. This movie will have you guessing and also challenge you into thinking that you have the movie all figured out when in fact your left surprised.

The Characters:

Adele : Very wealthy girl who lost her parents in a mysterious fire and was saved by her now husband David. She met another character Rob while undergoing treatment at a mental facility. Adele had a close relationship with Rob sharing similar complaints to that of night tremors. Rob was her only friend.

Rob: The bestfriend of Adele who was there with her while staying at a mental facility. Rob visited Adele one day and mysteriously goes missing.

David: Adele’s husband who would do anything possible to keep Adele happy. They had finally relocated  due to David’s new job and wanting to leave the past behind.

Loiuse : Single mother of a seven year old son Adam who is also recently divorced.

My Thoughts:

(Spoilers Included)

Netflix out did themselves with this limited series. I loved it thoroughly had me cursing like the true sailor. This movie will have you on the edge of your seat and its not one of those movies that you can multitask with , it needs your undivided attention for failure to miss major and crucial parts. If I were to sum up a theme for this movie “Minding Your Own Business” would do. Loiuse met David in a bar after being stood up by her friend Sophia. They hit it off from the start and enjoyed a good evening exchanging jokes and drinking. The chemistry was there and evidently for both something sparked between them and they shared a kiss which was very brief. Loiuse shows up at work the next day and discovers that the hot guy from last night would be her new boss.

Home girl was royally embarrassed and hid in the restroom. They eventually met officially and not before long they give into when feelings they had and slept together.

Things got out of hand when she met the wife ‘Adele’,they had coffee and soon become Bffs, Adele didn’t want Loise to disclose that they knew each other and Loise didn’t reveal she was the other woman.

Adele is a strange woman, you have to watch it to find out just how strange she is to go at length to be with her husband.

Rating 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
