Another movie about The Villages?
That appears to be the case!
Hot on the heels of the recent movie Some Kind of Heaven comes another film about The Villages with a name I must say I’m pretty partial to:
Here’s the trailer:
Many readers did not like Some Kind of Heaven, feeling that the main characters did not represent what most Villagers are like, and though I encourage anyone interested in The Villages to watch the film, I agree with that assessment.
Without seeing this new film yet, “The Bubble” seems like it may be less focused on following a set of characters around, and more focused on the pros and cons of The Villages as a whole.
I guess we’ll see how far off base that assessment is after we all see the whole movie.
“The Bubble” is directed by Austrian filmmaker Valerie Blankenbyl, and recently made its world premier at the Visions du Reél film festival.
Here’s an interview the director did with Variety.
For those readers who are in Florida and want to watch this film you might be in luck.
“The Bubble” is playing at the Sarasota Film Festival which takes place from April 30 to May 9, 2021 and, at least as of the time of this writing, it is available in their Virtual Screening catalog. It appears it’s viewing is restricted to Florida only.
I happily paid my $8 and can’t wait to watch the film on April 30. I’ll be sure to share my thoughts after I watch it.
Over to you! How do you think this new movie will be? Do you plan to watch it? Let me know in the comments down below!
