I few weeks ago I was invited to attend a screening for This is Us, the film about One Direction. You'll probably be surprised when I tell you that I'd never heard of this group before.
Obviously I have been living in a bubble, unbeknownst to me, for the past year or so. The good news is, because I hadn't heard any of their music or read any news about the group, I was able to watch the movie from a completely objective perspective. I am happy to report that I really enjoyed it, a lot!
What touched me the most was the sincerity of these

While fame has been seemingly instantaneous for them, they still have their feet firmly planted on the ground. They have not forgotten that the journey is the most important part and their enjoying every single minute of it. The bond that they have forged with one another is amazing!
I think the most incredible part about their story is that they are literally a product of their fans. They could not have gained this level of fame, in this short period of time, without their dedicated fan base, I've never seen anything like it.
If you don't have plans to see this movie, go see it! Even if you're not a fan of boy bands, or concert movies, it's more than that. "This is Us" is not just a concert movie, it's an up close and personal glimpse at hope realized. Check it out!
This is Us is in theaters now!
