Holiday in the wild (2019)

I enjoy Kristin Davis (as Kate in this film), she is such a great actress. I also loved her in the Sex and the City films. (I never saw the series, so I don’t know her from that). This is one of those films that doesn’t feel like a Christmas film and is thus fun to watch even when it’s summer.

What is this film about?
Jilted by her husband on the eve of embarking on an African safari, a woman travels to the continent alone where she meets an elephant conservationist. I got this information here.

What did I think?
The husband was a jerk from the get-go, so I can’t say I didn’t see it coming. It felt a bit strange that Kate didn’t see it coming. It was so on the nose and obvious it was a bit sad. Also, it is a great cautionary tale for all people. Never give anyone the power to throw away your dreams. So Kate and her husband got a divorce. I found it odd that the husband waited till his son walked out of the house as if the boy wasn’t going to call within 24 hours. I loved that Kate then went on the holiday herself. She chose herself and in that found herself. It was also interesting that they talked about humans being the most dangerous animal, I suppose that this is true. It was so sad when she left to go to New York, I think in a way we needed that. We needed her to be sure that this was what she wanted and needed out of life. The end was magical and got me all crying. It was overall a wonderful film to watch.
