Weekends in Connecticut: Movies, Trails, Markets and more!

Movies first – then we’ll get you outside!

I have a feeling this is going to do very well this weekend! Spirit Untamed -  An epic adventure about a headstrong girl longing for a place to belong who discovers a kindred spirit when her life intersects with a wild horse….

Next I want to tell you about a great family movie from a Connecticut resident called Hero Mode! From Hartford CT AJ Tesler has been in the business for a while, working with A list Comics from Bill Burr to Sarah Silverman and more AJ’s directorial debut, Magnolia's Hope, a documentary about his family’s journey following their daughter Magnolia's diagnosis with Rett Syndrome, was released in December 2020 HERO MODE marks AJ’s narrative feature directing debut.   It stars Mira Sorvino, Sean Astin and so many more recognizable faces! With his family’s indie video game business on the brink of bankruptcy, a teenage coding genius has just 30 days to create the world’s greatest video game. No pressure. Take a look!
