A Marriage Story on @netflix#NotAChristmasMovie is hard to watch. It’s good, great acting but it’s about a divorce and it’s painful. It’s Kramer vs Kramer for this generation. The star power in this movie made me not look away except when I grabbed tissues. #MovieReview

Check out photos on Philly Voice, Philly Style and on March 24 in Mainline Media News, and in May Philly Mag. I’ll also have more photos here on Philly Chit Chat next week.
Thursday I also photographed “NRG Celebrates $600K Milestone Contribution Benefiting Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia NRG Ambassador and Eagles Quarterback, Carson Wentz, will join NRG to announce contributions through the “Choose to Give” Energy Plan” Carson with the kids was the most adorable, moving moment and the whole event was very special. Before I headed out to my night time event I was able to get a few photos to CBSPhilly, and as always they got them up quickly. The column went viral, and CBSPhilly even featured it as a headline after a few hours. Check out the photos here, then head to PhillyVoice. I sent them 5 of the most adorable shots that will put a smile on your face.
Do yourself a favor and watch this video; So funny the kids keep calling Carson Wentz daddy. Watch til the end as the mom has a funny response to them.
