I Met A Girl - Movie Review! Available On Demand September 11th

Available On Demand on September 11, 2020

- Lily Sullivan (Jungle, Mental)

I Met A Girl follows the story of Devon (Brenton Thwaites), an aspiring musician with schizophrenia who is dependent on his older brother, Nick (Joel Jackson) to care for him. However, when Nick’s wife, Olivia (Zahra Newman) becomes pregnant, they arrange for Devon to move out. On a downward spiral, Devon is saved by Lucy (Lily Sullivan) a mysterious girl who is just as impulsive and romantic as he is. After one day together, they fall completely in love. Devon then arranges for Nick to meet her, but Lucy doesn’t show. They try to find her but her apartment is empty. Nick suspects that Lucy is a delusion, while Devon, desperate to prove his sanity, discovers a note that she wrote him: meet me in Sydney. And Devon sets off on an epic, cross-country journey to find her; the girl of his dreams… who may be all in his head.

My Review:
I Met A Girl is a hard movie to handle in the beginning. Once Devin stops taking his meds, you start to see more of his schizophrenia symptoms coming on. Especially when his demons start talking to him and making him doubt himself.

Devin takes a great journey leading him finally to Sydney, Australia where he meets a gentleman name Soul who helps him to print out fliers of Lucy (a girl who he met in his dreams, or was she real) to hang up around Sydney. And then a TV reporter finds Devin to ask him how he lost Lucy. When he goes on air, after telling his story, he starts hearing voices again and seeing this really bad nurse holding a needle whose waiting for him and sometimes, chases him. So he runs out of the studio, and his brother finds him laying on the ground in a park.

Devin checks into a place that can help people like him, and gets counceling. His counselor tells him that he's becoming more aware of himself and in control of his mind. He decides to check himself out. He gets a great job at a record store and moves into his own apartment. And then, something awesome happens! But, you'll have to watch the movie and stick with it to find out!

"Once Upon a Snowman" an All New OLAF Animated Short Debuts October 23 on Disney+!


All-New Animated Short Debuts Exclusively on Disney+ October 23

What happened to Olaf within the moments after Elsa created him as she was “letting it go” and building her ice palace, and when Anna and Kristoff first meet him in the forest? And how did Olaf learn to love Summer? The previously untold origins of Olaf, the innocent and insightful, summer-loving snowman who melted hearts in the Academy Award®-winning 2013 Disney animated feature, Frozen, and its acclaimed 2019 sequel, are revealed in the all-new Walt Disney Animation Studios animated short, Once Upon a Snowman. The film follows Olaf’s first steps as he comes to life and searches for his identity in the snowy mountains outside Arendelle. Once Upon a Snowman is directed by Trent Correy (animation supervisor, “Olaf” in Frozen 2) and Dan Abraham (veteran story artist who boarded Olaf’s “When I Am Older” musical sequence in Frozen 2) and produced by Nicole Hearon (associate producer “Frozen 2” and “Moana”) with Peter Del Vecho (producer, “Frozen 2,” “Frozen” and the upcoming “Raya and the Last Dragon”). Olaf is voiced by award-winning actor Josh Gad. 

“This is an idea that started to form when I was an animator on the first Frozen,” said director Trent Correy.” “Dan Abraham and I are so grateful and excited to have had the opportunity to direct this short, working with our incredible colleagues at Walt Disney Animation Studios.”

“Josh Gad gives one of the great animated voice performances as Olaf through the ‘Frozen’ films,” said director Dan Abraham. “To have the opportunity to work with him in the recording booth was such a privilege and career highlight.”

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ animated short, “Once Upon A Snowman,” debuts exclusively on Disney+ October 23, 2020

Jillette Johnson Announces New Album!

It’s A Beautiful Day And I Love You
Releasing February 12, 2021

Rollicking Ode To All The Exes “Annie” Released Today

Previous Track “I Shouldn’t Go Anywhere” Embraced by 
American Songwriter, Rolling Stone and Nashville Scene

Jillette Johnson has announced the February 12 release of It’s a Beautiful Day and I Love You, her first new album in four years. Returning with a newfound creative confidence, the Nashville-based singer/songwriter delivers a fully-realized collection of ten new songs featuring candid lyricism and a bolder, bigger sound. Along with the announcement, Johnson shares the rollicking new single “Annie” with a self-directed, DIY video shot during quarantine. An ode to her other half’s ex-girlfriend, “Annie” offers a different take on songs about “the other woman” as Johnson expresses genuine appreciation for the positive impact her role played in his life. 

Watch the “Annie” video via YouTube: 

“Annie is a thank-you letter, and a tribute to all the past relationships that make us who we are,” explains Johnson. “The ones that prepare us to find fulfilling partnerships. My partner has shared his heart with some badass women and I'm super grateful for it. May we be in an era finally, where women can see each other as allies, and not threats.”

Jillette Johnson has established a reputation for her ruminative pop/folk, piano-driven songs and powerful vocals, releasing her 2013 debut Water in a Whale and 2017 Dave Cobb-produced follow-up All I Ever See In You Is Me to widespread acclaim ranging from Billboard and Paste to Marie Claire and ELLE. She began writing songs at the age of eight, becoming fully immersed in music by high school and quickly learning first-hand about the prevalence of predators in this volatile, ever-changing industry. Now on the other side of a journey through pain and struggle to gratitude, forgiveness, and, ultimately, acceptance, It’s a Beautiful Day and I Love You sees Johnson taking full control of her career for the first time. She recently spoke about the process with American Songwriter and shared her debut single “I Shouldn’t Go Anywhere,” which Rolling Stone describes as “a spaced-out trip that recalls Harry Nilsson or Elton John at his most decadent.”

“The lessons I learned from those early industry experiences are why I’ve held so tightly to
making this album on my own with people I trust,” Johnson explains. “It would have been easy to lean into the melancholy. It was an act of rebellion to not indulge in the pain, to look beyond it and not wallow.” 

Produced by Joe Pisapia, It’s a Beautiful Day and I Love You injects Johnson’s intimate, piano-written songs with buoyant pop melodies and a shot of guitar-driven, alt-rock muscle. From the lilting, self-destructiveness of “I Shouldn’t Go Anywhere” and the somber reflection on “Angelo” to the irreverent humor in “What Would Jesus Do?” and the impulsively romantic title track, It’s a Beautiful Day and I Love You showcases Johnson’s hard-won optimism. 

“My challenge to myself in making this record and starting to write in the last couple of years was, ‘How can I genuinely be myself and reflect the contentment that is there?’,” she continues. “This chapter of my life has been about quiet, stillness, gratitude, deepening relationships, and not running away. This record has a lot to do with learning how to be in one place and how to feel freedom in that.”

With an open-heartedness and imaginative ingenuity, It’s a Beautiful Day and I Love You tackles every aspect of the human experience and offers a sense of hope by the album’s end. “Songs are painful, and suffering is inherent to life,” Johnson acknowledges. “Part of my journey has been understanding and accepting that, then doing what I can to find joy.” 

It's a Beautiful Day and I Love You is available now for pre-order on limited edition gold vinyl, CD and more at
