We were joined by several social media users of the female persuasion including Jenty, and it was really cool to be able to catch up a little.
Girlfriends’ Getaway is for girls only. No guys allowed. So if your man is completely anti-anything resembling a chick flick, grab a gal pal or two and do the Girlfriends’ Getaway.
Ster Kinekor provided us each with popcorn and a Coke, and we each got a very girly although uninspired goodie bag. Bubble bath and tampons?!? I could have done with something a little more entertaining or glam…
So here’s me seated with my popcorn, which – true to form for me – I successfully spilled as I sat down. Every time.
The movie we got to see – Begin Again – actually surprised me, in a good way.
A chance encounter between a disgraced music-business executive and a young singer-songwriter new to Manhattan turns into a promising collaboration between the two talents.
Here’s the trailer for you:
I was quite blown away by the sound track for one thing, and I will definitely be acquiring it for myself as soon as I can.
Not having read anything about the movie beforehand I was honestly expecting a RomCom, and there are times in the movie when you really do believe you know how its going to end. But very cleverly, and without any jarring or non-sensical plot twists, it pulls off a surprising ending. Well… it was for me, I don’t know if anyone else guessed how it was going to end… 😀
There was love, and lots of music, and some laughs, and even though the end kinda felt like they’d run out of time and they had to say a whole lot very quickly, I would absolutely recommend seeing it.
The next Girlfriends’ Getaway is on 8 October if you feel like a bit of a girls-only night: “Gone Girl“.
Ooh, and, as an added bonus, my Glugster got to go and see a movie while I was having a girls’ night out thanks to movie ticket vouchers from Ster Kinekor! As I don’t drive at night my sweetheart husband usually takes me to this kind of function, and he then has to go home and wait till its time to pick me up and this time he didn’t have to!
