A small-town beauty queen and an unlicensed mortician set out across the Texas plains on a journey of self-discovery in director Will Geiger's meditative road movie. Annabelle has never known what life is like outside the fiercely competitive world of beauty pageants; her mother's constant demands of physical perfection a never-ending stream of acute, soul-crushing criticism. Elvis doesn't have his mortician's license, but that doesn't stop his eccentric father from putting him to work in the family mortuary. When the sting of her mother's words becomes too painful to endure, Annabelle flees to the town mortuary knowing that is the last place her mother would come looking for her. When Elvis discovers the beautiful Annabelle cowering among the corpses, he sweeps her away on an impromptu road trip so that the pair may free themselves from their daily drudgery long enough to discover their own identities and realize what they really want out of life.

For me, however, this movie is beyond Blake Lively. It is a movie about two people with flaws and pasts that have crept into their present lives.
Annabelle and Elvis trying to navigate this world and discovering that you can't run away forever. At some point you have to face things. But that doesn't mean you have to face them alone.
I rather wish we knew what happened to them. Do they ever find out they each saved each other from suicide?
What happens with Annabelle's mother...
THE NUMBER ONE REASON FOR FAILURE IN MARRIAGE AND OTHER RELATIONSHIPS IS INSUFFICIENT COMMUNICATION. MY AUTOBIOGRAPHY SHARES COMMUNICATION FAILURES MADE BY ME AND SMALLVILLE'S CLARK KENT. THE EXCELLENT "ROME" SERIES SHOWS THAT SUCH FAILURE CAN EVEN RESULT IN SUICIDE AND DESTROYED OFFSPRING (NOT TO MENTION FAILURES IN OUR CAREER WHICH IN "ROME" LED TO CEASAR'S DEATH).
WE NEED TO REALIZE THAT THE WORLD IS INCREASINGLY TEARING APART RELATIONSHIPS. SOULMATES MUST COMMUNICATE FULLY AND PRIVATELY TO PREVENT OUTSIDE DAMAGE AND TO DEVELOP THE HABIT OF DEFERRING ANSWERS UNTIL SUCH PRIVATE COMMUNICATIONS CAN OCCUR. SOME SAY THAT MONEY IS THE NUMBER ONE CAUSE OF DIVORCE, BUT THIS IS REALLY A LACK OF COMMUNICATION IN PLANNING AND COMPROMISING.
IN ELVIS AND ANABELLE, A FAIRLY ISOLATED ELVIS TAKES CARE OF HIS MENTALLY DISABLED FATHER, EVEN DOING HIS UNDERTAKER WORK FOR HIM. IN TOWN, A GORGEOUS GIRL NAMED ANABELLE, PLAYED BY GODESS BLAKE LIVELY, IS STARVING HERSELF TO TRY TO BE A BEAUTY PAGENT WINNER. THE TRAGIC CONSEQUENCES OF EATING DISORDERS ARE THAT THE GIRLS ARE OFTEN WAY TOO SKINNY AND EVEN DIE FROM THE DISORDER. ANABELLE DROPS DEAD. ELVIS IS ABOUT TO EMBALM HER, BUT FIRST FEELS LED TO KISS HER. SUDDENLY, A WIND BLOWS THE WINDOWS OPEN AND ANABELLE COMES BACK TO LIFE.
I BELIEVE THAT NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCES ARE SOMETIMES GIVEN BY OUR LOVING GOD TO GIVE PEOPLE A BETTER LIFE THAT WHAT THEY HAD BEFORE. CERTAINLY THIS WAS THE CASE FOR ANNABELLE AS HER LIFE WAS ABOUT AS EXCITING AS THAT OF TITANIC'S ROSE DEWITT BUKATER WITH CAL HOCKLEY!
DUE TO YOUTH AND INEXPERIENCE AND PERHAPS A BIT OF A LONER, ELVIS DOES NOTHING TO ROMANCE ANNABELLE, WHO EVEN RUNS AWAY FROM HOME TO COME BACK TO THE EXACT SPOT SHE WAS RESURRECTED. LATER LAYING NEXT TO HIM ON A SCENIC QUIET, RURAL BRIDGE, ANNABELLE'S BODY LANGUAGE SENDS SIGNALS TO HIM. (I KNOW THAT I CAN'T RESIST LIVELY'S PHEREMONE SCENT!). NO RESPONSE, SO SHE STARTS TO CARESS HIM. A BEAUTIFUL ROMANCE DEVELOPS WITH THE DANGERS OF HER APPARENTLY BEING UNDERAGED, AND HIS BRYANESQUE/CLARKESQUE FAILURE TO COMMUNICATE THE TRUTH OF HIS CURRENT FEELINGS FOR THIS SOULMATE AND THE FULL TRUTH OF THE MIRACOUS AND ROMANTIC KISS THAT "SAVED HER IN EVERY WAY THAT A WOMAN CAN BE SAVED." GOD HIMSELF WANTED THIS ONE IN ONE THOUSAND RELATIONSHIP TO OCCUR, AND SUPERNATURALLY INTERVENED TWICE TO MAKE IT SO!! HIS WORD TELLS US THAT ONLY 1 IN 1000 PERSONS ARE GOOD. I DEFINITELY BELIEVE HIM! AND I DEFINITELY ELECT TO BE SUCH A PERSON OF GREAT INNER BEAUTY! IF THERE ARE ANY BOO'S OUT THERE (SINGLES WITH INNER BEAUTY AND A PERIOD), PLEASE SURPRISE ME BY COMING TO SAMISHBAY TO STAY AS MY GUEST! YOU WILL DEFINITELY BE TREATED LIKE A DAUGHTER OR BEST FRIEND OR MORE IF YOU HAVE LIVEBOO'S MOVES!
BY THE WAY, IF YOU ARE UNDERAGED, I AM OK WITH IT AS LONG AS YOU HAVE ADULT EQUIVALENCY LIKE THE VIRGIN MARY DID WHEN SHE WAS BETROTHED TO JOSEPH. ONE OR MORE BOOBOO'S ARE WELCOME AT MY HOUSE ON SAMISHBAY WHERE THE GOAL IS TO MAKE EVERYDAY CHRISTMAS!
