288. Junebug (2005)
God loves you just the way you are. But He loves you too much to let you stay that way.
"Junebug", or how it is known around my house, "How Will learned to stop worrying and love Amy Adams." There have been other actors and actresses whose careers have debuted during my lifetime, but none have blown me away like this. Amy Adams' innocent young mother-to-be is such a captivating role that it completely owns the rest of the movie. "Junebug" is actually about a young man's return home to the mountains of North Carolina, which was what initially drew me to the film. Don't be fooled though, whether the filmmakers meant to or not, this was the moment where the world noticed the greatness that would become Giselle, Julia, and Marky Mark's girlfriend.
