Actress Penelope Ann Miller has blogged in the Huffington Post about why people need to support films with an inspirational message.
“I feel we need to support films that send powerful messages to kids about courage, values, and being true to yourself,” she writes. “If we don’t get behind them and support them Hollywood won’t make them.”
“Last summer I had the incredible opportunity to be a part of Rob Reiner's new film, Flipped. It’s a story about two 13-year-olds in the early 1960s — Bryce and Juli — who live across the street from each other and how they find themselves and each other through the trials of love and friendship.
“Flipped is not just about first love, but about how a young girl teaches a young boy about what’s important in life. It’s a movie about courage, character, and standing up for what you believe in.
“Flipped was a real passion project for Rob and he was the perfect man to bring this story to the screen. He tells stories about human beings. You won’t find explosions, aliens, or vampires in this movie.
“From my experience working with him and counting him as a friend, Rob is a man that really appreciates and respects women and values the immense impact they have on men’s lives.
“I wanted to reach out through HuffPost’s amazing network to all the mothers and grandmothers who want to take their children and grandchildren to see a movie this summer with a message that will surely inspire.”
