One of my favorite things about high school was the last week of school. Sure there were finals, but I knew the school year was about to end, and it was almost time for summer break. Ah… summer break. Oh how I would look forward to it. Oh how I would long for it. Oh how I would plan out all the exciting things I was going to do, only to get trapped in a cycle of boredom within a week. You probably know the drill and have been there before.

“Return to Me is a movie that my whole family would sit down and watch together while I was growing up. My favorite part of the movie is the older men. They add a little comic relief to the story. Occasionally, my mom would treat us to her homemade caramel corn as we all gathered to watch a movie.
