The self help book business is a thriving industry for many reasons: people want to better their lives, people don’t know where else to look for the answers to their problems and they often turn to a false prophet to help fix said problems. In the new dramedy Reach Me, a colorful group of characters played by an equally eclectic ensemble of well-known actors are all effected by a self help book and its recluse author. Each character who is touched by this “magical” book are from all walks of life and the finale eventually brings all of these random individuals together for one rather average film.
Shailene Woodley is something of a phenomenon. She basically appeared out of nowhere and stepped right into the spotlight with her fantastic performance as George Clooney’s outspoken daughter in 2011’s The Descendants. Since then, she has been quickly moving up the Hollywood stardom ladder. At 22 year of age, she has shown a strong command of the dramatic arts and displayed a wide range in every role she chooses. Her latest film White Bird in a Blizzard continues to show audiences that she is more than just a pretty face and can tackle some very heavy material.
