Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray (Alex and Me) I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own. #AlexandMe
It’s a movie about believing in yourself. About working past obstacles to make your own dreams come true. . . Alex & Me, by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, is a movie you’re going to want to watch (again and again) this summer with your kids. Why? Let’s chat about it – plus I’ve got a giveaway for a free Blu-Ray of the film to hand out to one of you at the end of this post. So make sure you read all the way to the end.
Goals Are Worth Having – and Pursuing
What you’re going to see from this film is an inward drive, paired with an outward reflection of determination. Although, in Alex & Me, that outward reflection comes in a pretty rare form. While the main character, Siena Agudong, is the only one who can see soccer superstar Alex Morgan, she uses that “inner strength” to push herself forward on the soccer field, as well as in her daily life.
To be honest, I wasn’t sure that I was going to fall in love with this movie by the title. Soccer doesn’t play a big role in my life – but, honestly, that didn’t matter at all! This film was nicely and thoughtfully produced with an amazing message. It turned out to be something my entire (non-soccer playing) family really enjoyed watching together.
Meet the Cast of Alex and Me
Besides the script, another thing this movie got right was the cast! There are probably a few names you might even recognize besides Alex Morgan, who plays a soccer superstar in the film just as she does in real life.
Playing Alex Morgan’s counterpart is Siena Agudong – you may recognize her from Nickelodeon’s “Nicky, Ricky, Dicky, and Dawn” or as “Tiffany” in her recurring role on TVLand’s “Teachers”. You can read our exclusive interview with Siena Agudong by clicking here!
While that seems like quite the cast already, there are a few other names (and faces) that stood out to me in this film including Andrew Rush (born in Detroit), Chuti Tiu, Jim Klock, and Matt Cornett.
