      July Supporter Giveaway   07/01/2019

      It's Christmas in July! The winner of the July Supporter giveaway will receive this beautiful Barnes & Noble edition of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, as well as a special Charles Dickens tea by  theliteraryteacompany.co.uk .   I've been keeping this book a secret for so long (I couldn't wait until Christmas!) It's actually from a really lovely independent bookshop in Hay-on-Wye, the town of books. I'm so glad I finally get to show you! The picture doesn't even do it justice. A nice feature that you can't see in this image - the page edges are gold and (an extra surprise for the winner) the back is just as beautiful as the front! We also now have twice as much tea as previous giveaways!  (Thank you Literary Tea Company!)   As always, supporters are automatically entered into the giveaway and a winner will be chosen at random at the end of the month. If you want to enter this giveaway but you aren't a supporter, you can join in here https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum .   Good luck

Which movie is this?

Recommended Posts

There's a movie I've seen, but I can't for the life of me think what movie it is. The part of the movie I can remember is that a character played by Jennifer Aniston has gone

Spoiler

home to look after her family, as one of the family members has died. Maybe she's taking care of Mum as Dad has passed away, or the other way around. Her sisters/brothers are useless, they are just talking and gossiping and thinking about what happens to the family heirlooms or something like that, and Jennifer slaves away, cleaning the place up and taking crap from everyone. She's broken up with her OH recently, but then the ex-OH comes over to the house to pay his respect and tell her she's being a superstar, doing it all but not getting any due credit for it. 

 

I just can't figure out which movie this is. I've gone through Aniston's IMDB list and the movies she's in and which I've watched, but I can't figure it out. 

 

Can anyone help me? 

 

Edit: If it helps, Jennifer Aniston's character might not have been the main character. It may have been a movie where there were a few leading ladies with their leading men, Jennifer's being only one part of the whole story. Or it may have been her as the leading lady. Both are possibilities. 

 

Edit: Could it have been The Break-Up? The only reason I haven't really considered it before is that (SPOILER ALERT)

Spoiler

I thought I remembered Jennifer's character getting back together with that man, only she didn't get back together with the man in The Break-Up, at least not explicitly. But maybe she didn't get back together with him. I don't know. 

 

 

Edit: Okay I solved the mystery!! I can't believe it took me so long to figure it out. Because I've seen the movie 3 times and it's one of my favorites! The reason I didn't think it could be this movie, is because I thought I remembered the movie inside out, but apparently I didn't!! :o     Admittedly, the plot line of the character Aniston plays is my least favorite in the movie, and the one I like the most is by Ginnifer Goodwin and Justin Long, but surely I should've remembered the whole thing....  Oh and it's He's Just Not That Into You. I would recommend it to anyone who likes romantic comedies. 

 

Anyways, never mind, thank you and good night :D   I'll put the whole thing behind the spoiler curtain so you won't know what happens in the movie.

It isn't, isn't it?  A woman seeks the bigger picture, the truth behind all truths.... In real time! 

 

Would it make a great novel, though?

I have to say, I don't always remember she's in it, either :D And I've watched it three times and it's a favorite!! :D  But I think her part compared to the other actresses' parts is a smaller one, so maybe that's why.
