New in Town is a story about an exciting and ambitious woman who lives in Miami. Her name is Lucy Hill (Renée Zellweger) and is a high achiever that tries to become a Vice President.
To show the President of the company that she has the ability, she takes a temporal assignment to restructure a small manufacturing plant of yogurt in Minnesota. That city is so cold, full of snow and icy roads.
By the way, Lucy must endurance to the hard work to succeed. When she arrives, a local woman (Blanche Gunderson) invites Lucy to her house. There, Lucy meets Ted Mitchell (Harry Connick Jr.) who is the union representative. At first, she has some conflicts with the workers, but soon they begin to accept her. To add another problem, the product line is not working, and she is ordered to close the plant. However, she has a better idea of making money for the company and saving everybody's job. The company now manufactures Tapioca, a typical Blanche Gunderson’s meal. Along the way, she finds something she didn't know she was looking for and that is love.
In my opinion, the direction is great and the actors are incredible! I really liked the movie it was so funny, I specially like Renée Zellweger’s movies. She is a wonderful comedy actress.

Book/ Film: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
Author/ Director: J.K. Rowling
Characters/ Actors: Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley.
This one is the first book of Harry Potter's saga and its emergence fits in a perfect way to a fairies' history.
I chose this book because it is the reason why I started reading since I was just nine years old, and because as I began reading with it, lots of kids and teenagers around the world did.
This is a story based on a child called Harry Potter, who had grown with his aunt Petunia, his uncle Vernon and his hateful cousin Duddley, after had suffered the loss of his parents, supposedly, in a car accident. When the years past and Harry was finally eleven, he met Hagrid, the gamekeeper of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, who told him the real story about his parents’ death (in the hands of the dark wizard Lord Voldemort) and revealed Harry a great notice: he was a real wizard. From that moment, Harry's life gave an overturn of 180 degrees, and there's when the magic story begins: in the following months he will discover a lot of things about this new world, and he will also be envolved in a fight against his father's murderer, Lord Voldemort, trying to avoid him to get the Philosopher's Stone.
I believe that the author made a great work with this book: in the story, she includes a lot of children's characteristic problems, like the discrimination among themselves, which is a very important topic inside the story.

Has ever happened to you that you can't take your eyes off the TV while your fauvorite soap opera is on?. That is what happens to me everytime I watch Lost.
This is a programme which consists of 7 principal characters: Hurley, Sayid, John Locke, Kate, Jack, Sawyer and Sun. These people were flying to a particular destination, when suddenly the plane crashed and found themselves in a desert island, in the middle of nowhere. The characters previously mentioned face magical and weird situations, which creates a mistery. The instinct of survival is really interesting and how the relationships between the actors develops each chapter really catches you.
My fauvorite character is without any doubt Sawyer, a man who is always rude, but when he felt in love with Kate, he turned into a lovely man each time he was with her. At first impression, he seems to have no feelings, but at last you realize his good qualities.
Every chapter leaves you a feeling of intrigue, because there is always a problem without resolution, and I always wonder what is going to happen. I think that is what keeps me on watching it, and I am quite sure that every person who watches it would feel the same, so I would strongly recommend it to all the people, with no limit of age.
