Finding Normal ~
CFDb Movie Review & Recommendation
Dr. Lisa Leland is a brilliant surgeon with absolutely no bedside manner. She is leaving her practice at UCLA Hospital to move to the Hamptons where she will join her boyfriend as a concierge doctor, treating the rich and famous.
As she drives cross-country to her new life she hits a tractor in Normal, North Carolina and her BMW is wrecked. Dr. Leland is found guilty of speeding and ordered to do community service – as a doctor – in Normal, population 332. In a town with no wi–fi, no lattes and no credit cards, Lisa Leland begins to find herself and discovers what a meaningful life is all about.
Finding Normal has that similar Hallmark feel to it, but with some Christianity in it, and a few great moments of humor.
We really liked this one and there was 1 unexpected twist in the film. Here were a couple of my favorite parts:
- The judges response about God’s name was fantastic!
- Plucking off what weighs us down. Reminds me of when I pray for God to continue to chip away at the rough edges of my character.
This one comes on again today – Don’t Miss it!
