Directed by Shana Betz, Free Ride follows the journey of Christina (played by Anna Paquin), a woman who desperately wants to be rid of her dangerous relationship. She moves to Florida without warning only to find herself in a much more terrifying situation than the one she was already in. She is thrust into the world of drugs and her only savior is herself.
Should you see it:
True Blood fans will see a familiar face in this film (Anna Paquin.) If you’re not familiar with her work, maybe the drama genre will lure you in. Other actors and actresses to look out for in this movie include Cam Gigandet, Drea de Matteo and Liana Liberato. If you’re still on the fence, just think about trying something different if you normally go to the theater to see a comedy or an action film. After all, it’s always nice to switch your style up every once in awhile.
Who to take:
Free Ride might not be the best choice for date night, but this movie would be great to see with a bunch of girlfriends or age appropriate family members. However,you could get away with seeing this film with your boyfriend/girlfriend if the two of you are just looking for something casual to do together.
What are some healthy ways to end a relationship?
Breaking up with someone is never easy. When you know the relationship between you and another person just isn’t going to work, it can be hard to get them to realize the same truth. You don’t have to act out just to get someone to leave you. Instead, try to do things the right way. Cupid has some tips:
1. Be honest: The best way to begin and end anything is through honesty. Don’t string your significant other along if you know the two of you aren’t meant to be together. Let them know your feelings have changed. They might feel the same. Either way, the breakup will be a lot less difficult as long as both parties are on the same page and understand where the other is coming from.
2. In person: Don’t break up with someone via email, text or any other way that doesn’t involve you meeting your partner in person. Not only is ending a relationship in such an abrupt manner cruel, but it also shows the other person you never truly cared about their feelings. If you still want him/her to be in your life, do the right thing. Break up with your honey in private and let them down gently. Don’t play the blame game, but make sure they understand why you don’t see things working out between the two of you.
3. Keep calm: Breaking up is hard to do, but you need to make sure you do it with class. Don’t lose your temper over the small stuff. Your partner is bound to be upset, so brace yourself for some not-so-kind words and actions. No matter what he/she says or does in the heat of the moment, realize it’s only out of hurt and anger. Keep your cool and try to be patient with them.
