Nora Would Never! We Talk About "Brazen" on Netflix
For those of you waiting for us to talk about “Brazen” on Netflix, the time is finally here!! This week AJ and Jen are by themselves and we thought it was the perfect time (since Tara really doesn’t read Nora Roberts books) to finally watch the movie and talk about it!
This movie was based on Nora’s book, “Brazen Virtue.” Jen has not read this book for many years, and AJ hadn’t either, but did download the book and skim it before and after watching the movie. Because of this, we had slightly different overall impressions of the movie.
Jen ended up liking the movie overall, though, she wasn’t happy with the casting, mostly with Ed and Ben. We feel like for some reason, for this movie, they decided to make Ben more of the “quirky sidekick” instead of the hunky manly-man partner.
AJ was not happy with the casting of Alyssa Milano, because she’s not a fan. But she disliked the movie in general because it deviated so much from the book.
We all know that Nora is the “Queen of Dialogue,” so…why not use her dialogue??
Why did we need to add a bunch of characters??
If you haven’t seen it yet, we suggest going into it without having read the book, or at least having not read the book for a long time. You might find it entertaining, like Jen did.
A slight mea culpa for anyone out there who’s a Van Halen fan…AJ should have looked up the name of their bass player, but said it wrong. It’s not Anthony Michael, but Michael Anthony.
