Waiting For Forever Came Out On DVD and Blu-ray This Week

Fall In Love Once Again with Waiting for Forever
On Blu-ray and DVD 

From the producer of Walk the Line, WATING FOR FOREVER tells a story of childhood love that knows no bounds.  

Rachel Bilson (Jumper, The O.C.) and Tom Sturridge (Pirate Radio) lead an all-star cast in this unforgettable love story.  Sturridge creates a mesmerizing and unforgettable character in Will, the quirky street performer with a free spirit and a heart of pure gold. The object of Will's lifelong affection is Emma (Bilson), the beautiful young actress whom he has never stopped loving since they were childhood sweethearts. But when they reunite, and Will gets swept up in Emma’s complicated past, his innocence and all-consuming passion could cost him everything he’s ever wanted.

WAITING FOR FOREVER also stars Richard Jenkins (Step Brothers), Blythe Danner (Little Fockers, Meet the Fockers), Nikki Blonsky (Hairspray) and Jaime King (Sin City, Pearl Harbor).

What I Can Tell You: 
This movie reminded me of Benny and Joon starring Johnny Depp. The character of Will played by Tom Sturridge is just adorable. There is something sweet, innocent and genuine that shines through in his smile. 

There is a train accident. Will's parents die. He leaves his home town with his brother to live with relatives but never forgets his best friend Emma who helped him by telling him his parents will always be with him. Fast Forward maybe 10 years and Will is headed back home when he hears that Emma's father is dying  to finally tell her that he loves her. He has been in love with her forever and follows her around just to catch a glimpse.

While Emma's complicated life gets in the way of her happiness, Will shows her the simple pleasures of the past. Before they can live happily ever after, a turn of events and a jealous boyfriend has Will arrested and charged with murder. His innocence is tested but love always finds a way. 

I loved this movie and was shocked that I had not heard of it. It may not be award worthy but this different twist on young love is sweet and introduced me to Tom Sturridge. You can't go wrong with friendship movies and young love.
