12/26/19 Flashback – Pop: 🎶Goooood Morning! Happy Boxing Day.🎶 Not, Happy Boxill Day. But, Happy Boxing Day. But, Happy Boxill Day too.
Me: 😳😆 Pop, What is Boxing Day?
Well, read what Pop had to say about our Trinidadian “Boxing Day” history and additional history about the Boxing Day holiday in this link, https://bedolove.com/2019/12/26/morning-pop-talk-parang-happy-boxill-i-mean-boxing-day/.
Now about the movie. “Boxing Day” the movie on Amazon Prime is now a favorite and must see Christmas romcom. It has all the makings of a Christmas romcom filled with love, fun antics, comedy, drama, threats of moving, mixed with a familiar West Indian family banter and flair cherry topped with a dope soundtrack.
“Inspired by writer, director, and star Aml Ameen’s life, Boxing Day follows Melvin (Ameen), a British author living in America, who returns home to London for Christmas to introduce his American fiancée, Lisa (King), to his eccentric British-Caribbean family. Their relationship is put to the test as she discovers the world her fiancée has left behind.” —Deadline
Here’s an interview with Aml sharing his thoughts about the movie. https://www.empireonline.com/movies/features/boxing-day-trailer-breakdown-interview-aml-ameen/
Love seeing Aml doing his thing. I first became a fan watching him in Sense8. I loved having this cultural memory of Pop as tomorrow will be the one year anniversary of his passing! 🙏🏾💜🙏🏾 Enjoy! Happy Holidays! And, as Pop would say, “LOVE!” #BeDoLove #SupportTheArts #TwoSnapsAndATwist #BoxingDayMovie #BoxingDay #BlackCinema #CaribbeanCinema
