Lila & Eve: Netflix StreamTeam Pick Was So Good I watched It Twice

I’m a happy member of the Netflix Stream Team and the opinions in this post are my very own.

When I realized my favorite girl, Jennifer Lopez was in this movie, I should have known this was going to be one my favorites.   Every movie Jennifer Lopez is in seems to make my Chick Flick list and I’m sure it has a lot to do with her natural acting talent.  After reading the info on the movie:

Two distraught mothers, whose children were gunned down in a drive-by, team up to avenge their deaths after local authorities fail to take action.

I thought what better movie to watch especially with it’s relevancy as the murder rates  in our city continue to climb.  On the other hand it would help give a bit of insight and shed some light on the pain mothers deal with after losing a child to murder.  Living in our world today it’s so easy to become desensitized to the tragedies others are dealing with and unless disaster comes knocking at our front door, we careless who’s door he’s knocking on today.

Disclaimer : after watching the movie I’m not sure If this would be a good movie to watch for a mother mourning the loss of a child.  Needless to say, a love one, friend or neighbor of someone that has loss a child and looking to support them in their loss this is a must see to help you understand the pain of a the one grieving.

Now, I know this wasn’t an episode of How to Get Away With Murder and honestly I’ve never seen a single episode, but the way Viola Davis played her part in this movie right here… she gets an Oscar from me!  I watched this movie once and I was not expecting the outcome. At. All!  I totally spoiled the entire movie for my husband because after watching it, I had to tell him about it and not leave out any details.  As I would not expect, after epic spoiler alert, hubby wanted to watch it with me.  Surprisingly, I saw many details I missed when I watched it the first time.  As well as he was able to help me understand the ending better.

If you’re looking to see a good movie this weekend with girlfriends or your spouse, check out Lila & Eve!  You will not be disappointed one bit and if you really want to watch something.  Do one of my numbers and watch it twice! Bwahaha  Lila & Eve has made my #1 Netflix Movie so far this year.  Now, let’s see what movie with top it.
