Greetings to the SBV community and Happy Friday! I hope you’ve enjoyed movie review week here on the porch. I know I tucked away several new recommendations— to watch for when they come out on DVD! It’s true. My man and I seldom make it the movies which means we’re usually talking about the movie the rest of the world saw last year, if not the year before. If we do go to see a current movie, chances are it’s a sports theme that has pulled us in. (We’re that family, the ones who can pop popcorn and watch Hoosiers over and over like we do not know who is going to win in the end. )
Lately, however, something has been happening at All Things Southern that is changing the movie landscape at our house. I’ve been interviewing authors on my talk show, ATS LIVE, for a long time now. Every day I hear from publicists interested in securing an interview for one of their clients. I love it, too. The only downside is scheduling. The requests far outpace the radio time! This new development is adding to the lovely chaos.
In the past six months or so, ATS LIVE has made it onto a list somewhere out there in publicity land as a movie reviewer. DVD’s are now being delivered to my door by my sweet Ups man with almost as much regularity as books! I’m not complaining, mind you. I just need to wisdom to make this all work. I’ve interviewed some really cool people lately, but I’ll choose one to tell you about today.
One of my recent guests was Shervin Youssefian, the Writer and Director of Crossroad, an emotional and inspiring story of redemption, forgiveness and the ultimate realization of God’s grace at work in every life. I can’t begin to tell you how much my man and I enjoyed this movie, winner of 5 Dove Awards! Here’s a link to watch the trailer:
