I like rom-coms & indie flicks as much as the next gal so, naturally, when I saw the opportunity to go to the cinema and see a film that intertwined both I said yes.
Luckily for me Queen Charlotte must have also liked indie movies (and maybe rom-coms?) because this city has several independent movie theatres; the two most notable being the Manor Theatre off of Providence Road and the Ballantyne Theatre in Ballantyne Village.
(Also, has anyone decided what the correct spelling of theater(re) is? It’s like grey(ay). Personally I like “re” better, but sorry in advance if you’re horribly offended by my spelling.)
"What if?" is the story of two perfectly compatible people who stumble across each other at a friend’s party and become great friends only to realize that for some reasons I cannot reveal (spoiler alert) for the time being they can be nothing more. And so they are the best of friends.
Not only was this story incredibly sweet and quirky, but I loved getting to see Daniel Radcliffe in the role of the lovable, yet a little dorky, Wallace. He’s so charming and plus, ladies, who doesn’t love an accent? Exactly. His counterpart in this film, Chantry, played by Zoe Kazan, was utterly adorable as well (can we share a closet, please?). Together they were the perfect match of quick wit and splendid normalcy.
I loved it. Mostly because I felt like I was watching real life. This was a feel-good story with a thick enough plot line to keep me hoping for resolution in the end. I guess you will have to watch it to find out if these meant-to-be friends ever become more than that.
"What if?" gets a 4.5/5 stars from me!

Why is it that the great ones are always taken?
"I’m an architect of days that haven’t happened yet. I can’t believe a month is all it’s been. You know my paper heart, the one I fill with pencil marks. I think I might have gone and bid you well. So glad you didn’t see the nervous wreck I used to be. Never thought a girl could be so small. You never look at me like I’m a liability. I bet you never think I’d been at all…but you’ve got a face to call home. Maybe I could stay a while, I’m talkin’ like all of the time. You’ve got a face to call home.”
John Mayer “A Place To Call Home”
'Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops? What if Your healing comes through tears and what if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near.
What if my greatest disappointments or the aching of this life is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can’t satisfy?
And what if trials of this life: the rain, the storms, the hardest nights are Your mercies in disguise?
