There is no part of me that doesn’t feel extremely old, because when I looked at Marlow, I was like wait, this is the little girl from Single Parents? I was shocked. She’s only 13 (about to turn 14), but feels wise beyond her years.
One thing that I admire about the young teenager is that she’s managed to keep her private life private and separate her work. She’s wise to do just that. But I also believe that us, as adults, could learn more from those in a generation that isn’t worried so much about social media, but is looking to just live in the moment.
What you can learn from her social media is that she’s making a name for herself. In addition to starring in Spirited, opposite Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell, she’s also starring in Slumberland opposite Jason Momoa. Sure, with names like that one can get distracted, but Marlow, she stands on her own in every scene that she is in.
In Slumberland, “a young girl discovers a secret map to the dreamworld of Slumberland, and with the help of an eccentric outlaw, she traverses dreams and flees nightmares, with the hope that she will be able to see her late father again.”
I have to admit that I wasn’t prepared for just how emotional of a movie this would be. Judging by the trailer, I thought that it was going to be like The Never Ending Story or like have monsters under my bed or something.
But it was neither.
It was definitely a movie that stood on its own. A large portion of that was Marlow. She’s a talent that has just begun.
